"Heard It On The Radio" as written by Gregory Kurstin and Inara George....
When we first met
It wasn't what you said
And still I loved you like mad
I loved you like mad

When we first met, they were playing that song
And then it stuck into my head
Stuck into my head

When we first kissed you made it to my list
And then I couldn't stop myself
Think of nothing else

When we parked the car they were playing that song
And then we turned it up to ten and started up again

Now every time I
Hear it playing I think of you
And those summer days
Oh, I can till remember when I heard it on the radio
Oh, but now we are September
Come on, forget what we know

When you broke my heart there was nothing you could say
And still I loved you like mad, I loved you like mad
Now, when I think back it wasn't what we had
They were just playing that song
Made it last so long

Now every time I
hear it playing I think of you
And those summer days
Oh, I can till remember when I heard it on the radio
Oh, but now we are September
Come on, forget what we know

Oh, I can till remember when I heard it on the radio
Oh, but now we are September
Come on, forget what we know

    General CommentI think this is pretty much The Bird and The Bee's version of a Hall and Oates song- corny, extremely repetitive, about a relationship, upbeat- but it's also an explanation of the importance of Hall and Oates for the band, and the reason for the tribute album.

    The song is about a popular radio song that gets a lot of play; the narrator hears the strong throughout a relationship, and at some points confuses her feelings about the relationship with her feelings about this song, and how ultimately the presence of this song is her life over the course of that relationship has caused the two to become completely tied to eachother in her memories.

    It's also worth noting that the lyric "when we first kissed you made it to my list" references "Kiss is on my list," a Hall and Oates song.

    In other words, I think they're more or less just saying they love Hall and Oates' sappy, catchy music and that at certain points in their lives, the songs have insinuated themselves into their memories which creates a kind of importance, hence the tribute CD.

    Actually, although the CD is pretty great overall, this song is the best part of it.

    General CommentI think this a great song. I love how it's so upbeat! I think it's a song about being in love with love. I think the girl in the song is obsessed with the person she's singing about, but she wouldn't be so crazy about them if it weren't for the song that hypes up the idea of love. She wants to be in love because of the song she heard on the radio.
