This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.


All-Star

Smash Mouth

Somebody once told me

The world is gonna roll me

I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed

She was looking kinda dumb

With her finger and her thumb

In shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well the years start coming

And they don't stop coming

Fed to the wolves

And I hit the ground running

Didn't make sense not to live for fun

Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do

So much to see

So what's wrong with taking the backstreets

You'll never know if you don't go

You'll never shine if you don't glow

Hey now

You're an all star

Get your game on

Go play

Hey now

You're a rock Star

Get the show on

Get paid

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars break the mold

It's a cool place

And they say it gets colder

You're bundled up now

Wait 'til you get older

But the media men beg to differ

Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

The ice we skate

Is getting pretty thin

The waters getting warm

So you might as well swim

My world's on fire

How about yours

That's the way I like it

And I never get bored

Hey now

You're an all star

Get your game on

Go play

Hey now

You're a rock star

Get the show on

Get paid

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars break the mold

Hey now

You're an all star

Get your game on

Go play

Hey now

You're a rock star

Get the show on

Get paid

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars

Somebody once asked

Could you spare some change for gas

I need to get myself away from this place

I said yep

What a concept

I could use  little fuel myself

And we could all use a little change

Well the years start coming

And they don't stop coming

Fed to the wolves

And I hit the ground running

Didn't make sense not to live for fun

Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do

So much to see

So what's wrong with taking the backstreets

You'll never know if you don't go

You'll never shine if you don't glow

Hey now

You're an all star

Get your game on

Go play

Hey now

You're a rock star

Get the show on

Get paid

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars break the mold

And all that glitters is gold

Only shooting stars break the mold


Shooting Star

Bad Company

Johnny was a schoolboy

When he heard his first Beatles song

Love me do

I think it was

And from then it didn't take him long

Got himself a guitar

Used to play every night

Now he's in a rock ‘n' roll outfit

And everything's alright

Don't you know

Johnny told his mama

Hey mama

I'm goin' away

I’m gonna hit the big time

Gonna be a big star someday

Mama came to the door

With a teardrop in her eye

Johnny said

Don't cry mama

Smiled and wave goodbye

Don't you know

Yeah yeah

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know

Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

And all the world will love you just as long

As long as you are

Johnny made a record

Went straight up to number one

Suddenly everyone loved

To hear him sing his song

Watchin' the world go by

Surprisin' it goes so fast

Johnny looked around him and said

Well I made the big-time at last

Don't you know

Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know

Whoa

Yeah

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Yeah

And all the world will love you just as long

As long as you are

A shooting star

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know

Yeah eh

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

And all the world will love you just as long

As long as you are

Johnny died one night

Died in his bed

Bottle of whisky

Sleeping tablets by his head

Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day

If you listen to the wind you can still hear him play

Whoa

Whoa whoa

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know

Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star

Don't you know…
