Sing-a-long Saturday – Madonna’s Hollywood

Oct 23, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Hollywood is world renowned as the “place where dreams are made,” but for many others, it’s simply called “home.”

Like many other places, Hollywood, aka “Tinseltown” started its very humble beginnings as a farm community in 1853.

Oh, how far we have come.

Released on July 3, 2003, Madonna’s Hollywood, was her first single to miss Billboard’s Hot 100, since she first appeared on the musical scene some twenty years prior. Perhaps this didn’t have as much to do with the song, but more to do with the then, anti-war stand Madonna adopted upon the invasion of Iraq.

In an interview, Madonna said this about her song:

This song is like a metaphor for me. It’s the city of dreams and superficiality. It’s the place where you forget about the really interesting things in life. In Hollywood, you can lose your memory and your vision of the future. You can lose everything because you can lose yourself.

Some things stay the same just as they change at the same time.
