Queen
EMI, 1984
When we started talking about a 'Radio Waves' thematic issue of the Ovi magazine, I'm not sure why my mind immediately went to the song "Radio Ga Ga" by Queen. Perhaps the couple of lyrics I could remember, perhaps just the title, I'm still not sure what made me think about this song. The sure thing is that the song had a fantastic video clip to accompany it. The band is traveling through the scenes of the classic sci-fi film "Metropolis" and every time I watch it I find that I like it more and more.

Coming to the issue 'Radio Waves' of Ovi, I kept thinking that I had to write something about this song, especially for the iKritic section but then I had a better look at the lyrics and I thought, well this says everything. This is exactly what I'm trying to say in my articles about radio and radio days.

I think that the best idea is just to put the lyrics here and let you judge yourself:

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

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 cos 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

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

You had your time you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio.
