Everybody's says you must be crazy
When you ever gonna learn
You better stay where you are
Don't reach for the stars
You know you're gonna crash before you burn
But now you know we love the life we're living
Living everybody's dreams
Just look at us now
We're loud and we're proud
So check it out
On your cosmic screen

Lights, music, camera, action
Here's another one comin' atcha
You know who's our headline news
With music that will make you move
Lights, music, camera, action
Now we know we got your attention
We're taking that sound overground
Nothing's gonna stop us now (Are you ready for this?)

Before we're getting to the platinum baby
We'll be playing all the tunes
We'll be shaking that, working that
Oh we're stepping out in Gucci shoes
So now we're heading with the lifestyle, uh
Rewriting all the rules
From London, New York, Tokyo
Here's a word
Come on the girls

Lights, music, camera, action
Here's another one comin' atcha
You know who's our headline news
With music that will make you move
Lights, music, camera, action
Now we know we got your attention
We're taking that sound overground
Nothing's gonna stop us now

Pick vocation, new vibration
Wanna go, time's up
Ready for action (oooh, oh)

Lights, music, camera, action
Here's another one comin' atcha
You know who's our headline news
With music that will make you move
Lights, music, camera, action
Now we know we got your attention
We're taking that sound overground
Nothing's gonna stop us now

Living the life we love (come on now)
Loving the life we're living (are you feeling it)
No matter what you do (come on now)
We're gonna keep coming (yeah)
Living the life we love (yeah)
Loving the life we're living (you know I love it)
Baby
Lights, music, camera, action (Na, na, na, na baby yeah)


What's everyone think of 'Lights, Music, Camera, Action'? Should it have made it onto 'Sound Of The Underground' or was it better to stay a b-side? Or is it even not worthy of that status?

I always thought this was a cover version for some reason laugh.gif It's a good track but yeah I think b-side status was good enough for it. (OK it could've replaced the trash 'Love Bomb' to be fair)

I'd only heard this once until about 15 minutes ago laugh.gif I really like it though and I think it would've been a good album track, certainly would've made for a more consistent album if it replaced something like Mars Attack.

Nice song, I would replace it with something, but I don't really know with what dry.gif

As with all their SOTU b-sides, this one is fun, but nothing stellar.

For years this was only available on cassette in the UK, but it was included on the rare European Life Got Cold CD. I own that! wub.gif Obviously it's now been available via the singles box set since 2009.

I quite like the song. It's always had a hard time from the GA fan base but I'd say it's better than a handful of songs that made the actual album.

I did once buy the 'Life Got Cold' single and this song was, obviously, on it. I never cared for it but hearing it now it's pretty fun.

I really like this track actually, probably my favourite B Side of this era. I wouldn't have been against it being included on 'Sound of the Underground' as a bonus track! It got such a hard time back in the day though, no one seemed to like it. Perhaps because mostly we only had it in cassette rip quality.
