Annotationen

Rita Coolidge hatte die Idee, dass es einen Song über Groupies geben sollte und sprach darüber mit Leon Russell. Russel verfasste einen rohen Entwurf dieses Songs und verfeinerte ihn zusammen mit Bonnie Bramlett. Groupie (Superstar) ist sofort eine Art Rock Standard geworden. Cher sang ihn, Rita Coolidge und Bette Midler. Die Carpenters machten daraus einen Softrock-Klassiker.

Lyrics

Long ago, and, oh, so far away I fell in love with you before the second show Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear But you're not really here, it's just the radio Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby? You said you'd be coming back this way again baby Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby I love you, I really do Loneliness is such a sad affair And I can hardly wait to be with you again What to say to make you come again? Come back again and play your sad guitar Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby? You said you'd be coming back this way again baby Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby I love you, I really do Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby? You said you'd be coming back this way again baby Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby I love you, I really do
