Radio Ga Ga

LYRIC

[Intro]
(Radio)
(Radio)

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (Radio)

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 3]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (Radio)

[Chorus]
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!

[Bridge]
(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)
(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)
(Radio ga ga, radio ga ga)

[Outro]
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (Radio)

About "Radio Ga Ga"

This is the first track on Queen’s 1984 album, The Works. Written by the band’s drummer, Roger Taylor, this song reached the Top 40 of every major chart around the world. Its music video prominently features footage from the iconic German Sci-Fi movie Metropolisundefined.

The band performed this song, among others, during the 1985 Live Aid at Wembley Stadium in London; Queen’s set is considered to be one of the most pivotal moments in the history of rock ‘n’ roll.

The original title of this song was “Radio Ca-Ca”. This came about after Taylor’s son, Felix said, “Radio, caca!” when he tried to express that the radio was bad. Taylor liked the title, but the rest of the group objected.

Interestingly, Lady Gaga, got her stage name from the song.
