Hollywood Romance

Album: Tigers and Fireflies (1979)
  • The first track and lead single off Lynsey's only album for Polydor Records, this song is undoubtedly about her move to California with beau James Coburn, the actor. It's a fun, uptempo song that makes reference to many of the classic Hollywood films and Lynsey sounds very laid back. The song was co-written by Lynsey and David Jordan (they co-wrote "Getting a Drag" five years previously). Lena Zavaroni did a good cover version of the song on her TV show. >>
