Bob Seger - 'Hollywood Nights' - Live in San Diego 1978




Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band performing live in San Diego 1978 to an ecstatic audience.


"Hollywood Nights" is a song written and recorded by American rock artist Bob Seger. It was released in 1978 as the second single from his album, Stranger in Town.


Seger said "The chorus just came into my head; I was driving around in the Hollywood Hills, and I started singing 'Hollywood nights/Hollywood hills/Above all the lights/Hollywood nights.' I went back to my rented house, and there was a Time with Cheryl Tiegs on the cover...I said 'Let's write a song about a guy from the Midwest who runs into someone like this and gets caught up in the whole bizarro thing.'"




Lyrics



She stood there bright as the sun on that California coast

He was a Midwestern boy on his own

She looked at him with those soft eyes so innocent and blue

He knew right then he was too far from home

Oh

He was too far from home

She took his hand and she led him along that golden beach

They watched the waves tumble over the sand

They drove for miles and miles up those twisting turning roads

Higher and higher and higher they climbed


And those Hollywood nights

In those Hollywood hills

She was looking so right

In her diamonds and frills

Oh those big city nights

In those high rolling hills

Above all the lights

She had all of her skills


He'd headed west cause he felt that a change would do him good

See some old friends, good for the soul

She had been born with a face that would let her get her way

He saw that face and he lost all control

He had lost all control

Night after night, day after day it went on and on

Then came that morning he woke up alone

He spent all night staring down at the lights on LA

Wondering if he could ever go home


And those Hollywood nights

In those Hollywood hills

It was looking so right

It was giving him chills

In those big city nights

In those high rolling hills

Above all the lights

With a passion that kills


In those Hollywood nights

In those Hollywood hills

She was looking so right

In her diamonds and frills

Oh, those big city nights

In those high rolling hills

Above all the lights

She had all of her skills (Hollywood nights

)

(Hollywood nights)

(Hollywood nights)

(Hollywood hills)

(Above all the lights)

(Hollywood nights)
