"Starstruck" is a single by Rainbow, released in 1976 and featured on their album Rising. The lyrics talk about a rock star who is always followed by a fan girl and who could never get peace of mind. There is an amusing story behind this song which is related in Jerry Bloom's biography of Ritchie Blackmore. A French fan named Muriel had been following the guitarist around Europe for some considerable time, and "One day I looked out of my window and thought I saw the bushes move in the garden. I kept watching and sure enough she'd found my house, so I set my dogs on her!" The song didn't eventually become a hit, but is featured on many of their greatest hits compilations, such as The Very Best of Rainbow and Catch the Rainbow: The Anthology.
