I Wish My Life …

Feeling lyrical this morning. Music tends to lodge in my brain when I’m in a mood, and today it’s “Celluloid Heroes.” The most famous version is by the Kinks, but I’m far more fond of the cover recorded by Blackmore’s Night (I’m a big fan of BN overall). I suppose it’s this line that’s resonating right now:

I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

Anyway, check out the Blackmore’s Night cover, below. It’s pretty stellar:
