Culver Moon

    I lived in Culver City for 28 years. Jackson Browne lived up in the hills in an area called Culver Crest and wrote this song about the town. 

    Big Studio town. MGM, SONY, Selznick/Culver Studios.

     

    It was three miles from the ocean which is the same distance I am now. They filmed Gone With The Wind and the Wizard of Oz there.

     

    Great Bluesy Song

    I live in a small town . . . deep in LA
    About five miles north of where the Lakers play
    Everybody here's from someplace else
    Working all together just like Santa's elves
    Baby, Culver me
    And I'll Culver you
    When the streets are shining with the smoggy dew
    When the lights are glowing with the mists of June
    And the whole world is lit up by the Culver Moon
    Baby don't worry 'bout Angelyne
    She ain't the prettiest thing I've ever seen
    Nothing she wears ever fits her right
    And her complexion is just a little too tight
    And the way she looks down from so high above
    Makes me think the poor child's never been in love
    Baby, Culver me
    And I'll Culver you
    When the streets are shining with the smoggy dew
    When the lights are glowing with the mists of June
    And the whole world is lit up by the Culver Moon
    Baby I'm going to love you 'til the stars come down
    'Til they park their limos and they walk to town
    'Til the L.A. river overflows its banks
    'Til the whole alternative nation bows its knobby head in thanks
    'Til the fish are jumping in Ballona Creek
    'Til the earth is inherited by the meek
    Baby, Culver me
    And I'll Culver you
    When the streets are shining with the smoggy dew
    When the lights are glowing with the mists of June
    And the whole world is illuminated by the Culver Moon
    Under the rainbow and behind Versailles
    From the aisles of Fedco to the 405
    From MGM to Veteran's Park
    Way down at Chippendale's fumblin' in the dark
    Where the ghostly specter of Howard Hughes
    Hovers in the smoke of a thousand bar-b-ques
    Baby, Culver me
    And I'll Culver you
    When the streets are shining with the smoggy dew
    When the lights are glowing with the mists of June
    And the whole world is lit up by the Culver Moon
