"Pop Trash Movie" is a song by Duran Duran, released on the album Pop Trash by Hollywood Records on 19 June 2000.

About the song Edit

Written by Duran Duran, the song was co-produced by Warren Cuccurullo and Nick Rhodes' TV Mania. This was a departure from previous album material, where production was always credited to Duran Duran plus any outside producers. This reflected Simon Le Bon's decreasing involvement in the songwriting, recording, and mixing process at the time.

The track was originally written for Blondie, who Duran Duran toured with as a supporting act during her 1982 Tracks Across America Tour. Blondie recorded a demo version which is available on the unofficial Dream Boyz album.

Several Internet sites also state that "Pop Trash Movie" was released in Japan on a Blondie album called Deborah Is Rival in 1997. (TOCP-50271 / 408142). There is no artwork to confirm this.

The music of "Pop Trash Movie" reclaims the beautiful soundscapes of The Wedding Album's "Ordinary World".

Lyrics Edit

Saw a close up of your pretty face
Overnight sensation 
Smiling for cameras 
From all around the world 
If I rewind back to yesterday 
And stop the tape there 
No one knew who you were 
But now they're at your door 

I'm living in a pop trash movie 
We star together in every scene 
We'll all be famous for just a few minutes 
Part of a celluloid dream 

Watching slow-mo going frame-by-frame 
Might have blurred my vision 
Your life went flashing by
Where did it all go wrong? 

I'm living in a pop trash movie 
We star together in every scene 
We'll all be famous for fifteen minutes
Part of a celluloid dream 

I'll wait in the wings for you 
I'll read your lines to you 
But now the script is final you know, it's time to go 
So we'll have to say goodbye 

I'm living in a pop trash movie 
We star together in every scene 
We'll all be famous for those fifteen minutes 
Part of a celluloid dream 

We star in every scene 
And it's never quite what it seems 

(Never)

I'm living in a pop trash movie 
I know we'll make it with that pop trash - yeah 
We'll all be famous for those fifteen minutes
Part of a celluloid dream, yeah
