Name of popular song from the 80's about Hollywood

Need help in identifying a song from the 80's (I think). It is about Hollywood's golden age, rather long, with some spoken word, that got a lot of airplay. Apologies for not remembering any of the lyrics, but they are just outside the reach of my memory.

Find me that lazy lout!

I'm looking for a recording of a song, but I can't find it anywhere, or even who might have recorded it! In Get Up by Chinese Man there's a sample of a song (starts about 20 seconds in). From googling the lyrics I've found the song seems to be called Lazy Lout, but that's pretty much all I can find. [more inside]

Cover of The Cure's Just Like Heaven gone from YouTube.

Greetings, there was a cover of The Cure's Just Like Heaven on YouTube, sang by a girl. It was a slow version, beginning with a line of vocals, before the guitar swooped in. She used a Samson G-Track mic. I listened to it once before it disappeared. I do not remember her name and the video is gone. It was great. I want to hear it again. And again. Anyone remembers?

Classic rock/pop songs that play well on a single acoustic guitar?

Calling all guitar players: Looking for popular songs that can easily be played and sung by a single person with an acoustic guitar without losing too much. Basically, the kind of songs you can put in a set list where people's reactions are to immediately say, "Hey, I really like that song," followed immediately by "and hey, that sounds pretty close to the original too!" Also, very important: Any song should be playable by a *mediocre* guitar player. [more inside]

Upbeat Denver song?

Is someone were moving to Denver and having a celebratory party, what would be a good Denver-themed song to play at the climax of this party, i.e. as the cake is being brought out? Rocky Mountain High by John Denver is an obvious choice, but it's kind of slow, not exciting. Something like Elevation by U2 or Gold Digger by Kanye West are better, more upbeat and indirectly related to Denver, but I'd prefer something a bit more obviously connected to Denver. It should also be a song a group of 20-40 year old American geeks would enjoy.
