"Radio Nowhere" as written by and Bruce Springsteen....
I was tryin' to find my way home
But all I heard was a drone
Bouncing off a satellite
Crushin' the last lone American night

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?

I was spinnin' 'round a dead dial
Just another lost number in a file
Dancin' down a dark hole
Just searchin' for a world with some soul

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?

I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm
I just want to hear some rhythm

I want a thousand guitars
I want pounding drums
I want a million different voices speaking in tongues

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?

I was driving through the misty rain
Yeah searchin' for a mystery train
Boppin' through the wild blue
Tryin' to make a connection with you

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?
Is there anybody alive out there?

I just want to feel some rhythm
I just want to feel some rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm
I just want to feel your rhythm

    General Commenti think the songs about having a dig at todays radio and the rubbish that gets played. Feeling alone and out of date. Fantastic song.

    General CommentSpringsteen (from Rolling Stone magazine, November 1, 2007): "It's an end-of-the-world scenario - he's seeing the apocalypse. All communications are down. That's my business, that's what it's all about - trying to connect to you. It comes down to trying to make people happy, feel less lonely, but also being a conduit for a dialogue about the events of the day, the issues that impact people's lives, personal and social and political and religious. That's how I always saw the job of our band."

    General CommentI don't think this song has anything to do with MUSIC! It is a guys POed look at what the broadcasting industry has become. Hell, there's plenty of great new music out there, but you gotta work your butt off to find it. Read Miami Steve's 2005 keynote address at a Jacob's Media summit if you can find it online. The term "homogenized" is used over and over, but local radio refuses to take any chances, so listeners go to satellite that is broadcast nationwide. There's no flavor to it! "Is there anybody alive out there" is a dig at what automation has done to broadcasting. If you're listening to radio at night, there's a big chance the DJ recorded it earlier in the day. And that is why radio has become so disconnected ("trying to make a connection with you"). There are no local jocks to make a connection with their listeners.

    I'll get down off my horse now.
