1984: Radio Ga Ga



Queen: Radio Ga Ga

[purchase]

Though not one of their best known songs, Radio Ga Ga was still one of the most often played on my first Queen collection. Released on their album The Works, it's kind of the sequel to "Video Killed the Radio Star," but has more staying power. Speaking of videos, this was always one of Queen's best elements and the music video for this, incorporating scenes from Metropolis, is worth watching. Check it.

Now I don't feel so bad about posting Rockwell. :-)

Though, to be fair, I owned this one on a 45 once too.

All we hear is (clap clap) Radio Ga Ga... (clap clap) Radio Goo Goo...

Indeed.

I'm glad to see some Radio Ga Ga love here. It always kinda mystifies me when people call it names. A lot of people hate this song, weirdly.

Ray, the video does rock.. as did the crowd at the performance of this song at Live Aid. Gives me chills to think about it.

Radio, someone still loves you.
