Fame

I’m gonna live foreverI’m gonna learn how to fly

It occurs to me that the opening lyrics to Fame, from Fame, are mutually exclusive. Also, it’s rather quaint that while the song starts as pure aspiration, it quickly becomes more practical. What is learning how to fly, exactly? It’s failing to fly. If you’re going to live forever, learning to fly is the last thing you should try. I suggest rewriting the song thus:

I’m gonna live forever

I’m going to invest in cryogenic suspension
