Queen - Radio Ga Ga (Official Video)



Queen drummer Roger Taylor wrote this song. When it charted, all four members of the group had written at least one Top 10 hit either in the US or UK.


Roger Taylor wrote this as a critique of radio stations, which were becoming commercialized and playing the same songs over and over (and this was before radio was deregulated, allowing companies to own multiple stations in a market, resulting in more corporate ownership, less competition and generally bad radio).


Taylor claimed that he was inspired to write this after watching MTV. He noticed that lots of kids were watching the channel instead of listening to the radio


Lyrics


Radio



Radio



I'd sit alone and watch your light


My only friend through teenage nights


And everything I had to know


I heard it on my radio



You gave them all those old-time stars


Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars


You made 'em laugh, you made 'em cry


You made us feel like we could fly



Radio



So, don't become some background noise


A backdrop for the girls and boys


Who just don't know or just don't care


And just complain when you're not there



You had your time, you had the power


You've yet to have your finest hour


Radio, radio



All we hear is "Radio ga ga


Radio goo goo


Radio ga ga"


All we hear is "Radio ga ga


"Radio blah blah"


Radio, what's new?


Radio, someone still loves you



We watch the shows, we watch the stars


On videos for hours and hours


We hardly need to use our ears


How music changes through the years



Let's hope you never leave, old friend


Like all good things on you we depend


So, stick around 'cause we might miss you


When we grow tired of all this visual



You had your time, you had the power


You've yet to have your finest hour


Radio, radio



All we hear is "Radio ga ga


Radio goo goo


Radio ga ga"


All we hear is "Radio ga ga


Radio goo goo


Radio ga ga"



All we hear is "Radio ga ga


Radio blah blah"


Radio, what's new?


Someone still loves you



(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)


(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)


(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)



You had your time, you had the power


You've yet to have your finest hour


Radio, radio
