Buggles - Video Killed The Radio Star

Video Killed The Radio Star Lyrics

I heard you on the wireless back in fifty two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through

Oh-a oh

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

Oh-a oh
I met your children
Oh-a oh
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go

Oh-a oh
You were the first one
Oh-a oh
You were the last one

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone to far

Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone to far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VTR

You are a radio star
You are a radio star

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star)
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star)

Oh-a oh
Oh-a oh
Oh-a oh
...

I'm 16. Living with parents who watch 80's and 90's specials I have grown to love these kind of songs. This being my favorite of the 80's.

How could someone like this song and J Lo? This song is too good for someone who likes J Lo crap. Everything on 92.3 Now sucks.

out with the old and in with the new they say, but this song reminds us how the old school things are always the best and how modern technology will never replace that.

That song rules! And the video is awesome! Too bad they don't have great songs like that anymore. Now they have worthless ugly freaks like Jennifer Lopez that have no talent and make everyone sick.

Idiots killed the lyricist star. And replaced him with Used French-Fry Oil. In my brain and on a czar we can't replace we're too bizarre. But that's OK, because everybody's on Hard Narcotics anyway

According to the mythological legend of parrots, there are approximately 12.5 centimeters worth of rope in the bow of a ship. Sentencing all fish to a private school in England.
