This song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King in 1967 and recorded by the Monkee's that same year, Star Collector exhibits a certain callousness about the phenomenon of groupies.
What makes this song (which would also be at home in Remy Shand's (@Remy
) creation SONGS ABOUT GROUPIES) suitable for this fabulous new bead is the focus on FATAL FAME, the corrosion of privacy or personality as a result of over exposure etc.,
Little Davy displays a dismissive attitude toward people:
"Think I'll let her keep on going, wherever it is she's going to / Give her an autograph and tell her 'It's been nice knowing you'"... "It won't take much time / Before I get her off my mind".
But then fans aren't people, are they? They are a devouring mob.
