Songs about being famous, the perils of celebrity, the paparazzi, being stalked, appearing on magazine covers, the lack of privacy--songs, in short, about the upsides and downsides of being famous for singing songs.

The Jam - To Be Someone (Didn't We Have A Nice Time)
Luke Dempsey

No more swimming in a guitar shaped pool

Before The Jam famously appropriated the Taxman riff for their hit single, "Start," Weller et al stole it two other times. Once, on a track called "Dreams of Children," which appeared a few months before "Start," and here, on Weller's song about the perils of fame, "To Be Someone," which is the second track on the 1978 album "All Mod Cons." (They sure liked that "Taxman" figure . . .)
