Video Killed the Radio Star (The Buggles cover) Lyrics

I heard you on my wireless back in '52
Lying awake intent on 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 on new technology
And now I understand the supernova scene
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
Because in my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone to far
Fuck

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
You hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember, the jingles used to go
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
Because in my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, you've gone too far
Yeah
All right
Yeah
Petite
So sweet

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Because in my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Pictures came from your heart
Put all the blame on VCR

You are the radio star
You are the 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
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

Yeah, too right. The backing noises are, in places, hilarious.

Awahh-oh

i agree with jimmer-the-great.. i've never really thought about what this song had meant until tonight.. I don't really have an idea myself.. but I figured it would be deeper than just talking about media. thats why i came to this site....

but i agree.. i like the pres. of the USA alot better than the bangles.

This is a reeaaaally good cover. First heard it off the "wedding singer" soundtrack.

The lyrics certainly,have slight mistakes. and the versions the people write in , get better, but the last one written still has some slight errors, like eg. "I heard you on MY wireless back in 52", "intent ON tuning in on you" "Rewritten by machine ON new technology". Other than these, they're great :)

this song rocks totally

An error occured.

actually, a lot of these lyrics are messed up lol

An error occured.

true. Its "we cant rewind we've gone too far", not "watch your language"- where the hell did that come from??

An error occured.

i like this song! but.. doesn't anyone wonder where they got "supernova scene"? and why they replaced "problems you could see" with it? i like it.. i think it is rather spiffy...

The supernova scene refers to a band in California that put on a space alien themed rock show. It was a local rock band called supernova and it was fairly wild and far out for the time.
