Tell me whatever happened to the radio
Do they still play the songs you wanna hear
On the stereo?

Do you still like the bands you loved a year ago?
Would you still like me if we were to be on the radio?
Like me, if we were on the radio?
Like me, are they just played-out?

Tell me whatever happened to the radio
Do they still play the songs you wanna hear
On the stereo?

Do you still like the bands you loved a year ago?
Would you still like me if we were to be on the radio?
Like me, if we were on the radio?
Like me, are they just played-out now?

Tell me, tell me whatever happened to the radio
Tell me, tell me whatever happened to the radio

    starsRsorad, that song was made back in 1999. b4 they were on the radio. I don't think it was pointless. I think it's just about selling out. I like the song, it's not their best. They're pumping out the awesome songs now.

    I really like this song. I first heard in when I bought the drive thru records sampler "Welcome To The Family." Apparently this song was unrealesed until it was put out on this cd. Good stuff.

    I think it's named "come back Bon Jovi" 'cause they're one of the bands that radioes don't play anymore. I think it's fine if they don't, 'cause nowadays, you're almost ashamed if a band you like get played on the radio. In the '80's, heavy metal was "popular", so then bands like Bon Jovi, Guns and Roses and Aerosmith were on the radio all the time. Radioes ore so shallow. It's like Richie Sambora in Bon Jovi said: "MTV don't dig us, and we're very relieved.."

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
