and this classic from 1980 from Rush...


"Begin the day with a friendly voice,

A companion unobtrusive

Plays the song that's so elusive

And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way, hit the open road,

There is magic at your fingers

For the Spirit ever lingers,

Undemanding contact in your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves crackle with life

Bright antennae bristle with the energy

Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength

Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free

All this machinery making modern music

Can still be open-hearted.

Not so coldly charted

It's really just a question of your honesty

Yeah, your honesty

One likes to believe in the freedom of music

But glittering prizes and endless compromises

Shatter the illusion of integrity, yeah"

[*] Rock And Roll - Lou Reed

Jenny said, when she was just five years old

There was nothin' happening at all

Every time she puts on the radio

There was nothin' goin' down at all, not at all

Then, one fine mornin', she puts on a New York City station

You know, she couldn't believe what she heard at all

She started dancin' to that fine, fine music

You know, her life was saved by Rock and Roll

Turn Your Radio On-Ray Stevens

"get in touch with God, turn your radio on"....righteous!


Come and listen into a radio station where the mighty hosts of heaven sing

Turn your radio on turn your radio on

If you want to hear the songs of Zion coming from the land of endless spring

Get in touch with God turn your radio on

Turn your radio on turn your radio on and listen to the music in the air

Turn your radio on heaven's glory share

Turn the lights down low and listen to the Master's radio

Get in touch with God turn your radio on

[ ac.guitar ]

Brother listen into the gloryland chorus listen to the glad hosannas roll

Turn your radio on turn your radio on

Get a little taste of joy awaitin' get a little heaven in your soul

Get in touch with God turn your radio on

Turn your radio on...

Listen to the songs of the fathers and the mothers

And the many friends gone before turn your radio on turn your radio on

Some eternal morning we shall meet them over on the hallelujah shore

Get in touch with God turn your radio on

Turn your radio on...

Folks, can I get an amen?

Elvis Costello- Radio Radio

I was tuning in the shine on the light night dial

doing anything my radio advised

with every one of those late night stations

playing songs bringing tears to me eyes

I was seriously thinking about hiding the receiver

when the switch broke 'cause it's old

They're saying things that I can hardly believe.

They really think we're getting out of control.

Radio is a sound salvation

Radio is cleaning up the nation

They say you better listen to the voice of reason

But they don't give you any choice

'cause they think that it's treason.

So you had better do as you are told.

You better listen to the radio.

I wanna bite the hand that feeds me.

I wanna bite that hand so badly.

I want to make them wish they'd never seen me.

Some of my friends sit around every evening

and they worry about the times ahead

But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference

and the promise of an early bed

You either shut up or get cut out;

they don't wanna hear about it.

It's only inches on the reel-to-reel.

And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools

tryin' to anaesthetise the way that you feel


Wonderful radio

Marvelous radio

Wonderful radio

Radio, radio...

I also like Janes Addiction's version of Rock and Roll

Starman - David Bowie

Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low

I leaned back on my radio

Some cat was layin' down some rock'n'roll lotta soul, he said

Then the loud sound did seem to fade

Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase

That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive


There's a starman waiting in the sky

He'd like to come and meet us

But he thinks he'd blow our minds

There's a starman waiting in the sky

He told us not to blow it

'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile

He told me:

Let the children lose it

Let the children use it

Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you

Hey, that's far out so you heard him too!

Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two

Look out your window I can see his light

If we can sparkle he may land tonight

Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

Oh, the Octopus cover of Starman is very good!

Here's a cool song about hearing Tom Jones on the radio, and basically how he saved Tommy (from Space) and Cerys' (from Catatonia) lives!

[tommy:] what did I do wrong?

[cerys:] oh you nearly drove me cuckoo

[tommy:] am I really all that bad?

[cerys:] you?re worse than hannibal lecter, charlie manson, freddy Krueger

[tommy:] why are we still together?

[cerys:] oh I can?t leave you till you?re dead

[tommy:] you mean till death do us part

[cerys:] I mean like cyanide, strangulation or an axe to your head

[tommy:] it was lucky for us I turned the radio on

[cerys:] they say that music soothes the savage

[tommy:] there was something in that voice that stopped us seeing red

[both]: the two of us would surely have ended up dead

You stopped us from killing each other (tom jones, tom jones)

You?ll never know but you saved our lives (tom jones, tom jones)

[cerys:] I?ve never thrown my knickers at you

[tommy:] and I don?t come from wales

[tommy:] still haven?t solved our problem

[cerys:] you mean we hate each other?s guts

[tommy:] still wanna poison your

[cerys:] and I still wanna cut off your

[tommy:] i phoned the marriage guidance

[cerys:] i tied the phone line round your

[tommy:] I?m sick of all this hatred

[cerys:] well that?ll be the arsenic making you sick

[tommy:] you were about to drive me over the edge of a cliff
