Do you know of any songs with the word "radio" in the title that aren't awesome?

Asked by Seelix (14757 points ) April 11th, 2011

I’m not sure what got me thinking about this, but it occurred to me recently that there are a lot of songs with the word “radio” in the title that are just plain great.

I mean, I know there are probably a lot of great songs with the word “love” in the title, but “radio” is a less common word and I just thought it was a little weird.

Here are some examples:
Radio Radio by Elvis Costello
This is Radio Clash by The Clash
Radio Gaga by Queen
Radio by Alkaline Trio (NSFW lyrics)
Radio by Teenage Bottlerocket
Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio? by The Ramones

So… What do you think? Do you know of any other great songs to add to my list? Do you know of any terrible songs featuring the word “radio”? Links please!

Not crazy about that one personally.

But I love Radio Gaga by Queen.

On the Radio by Donna Summer – not all that great.

Ladies Love Cool James – I Can’t Live Without My Radio

Not not-good, but it’s a little slow for my tastes.

@lucillelucillelucille I gotta say I love that song!

I love Roger Waters, but Radio Waves was a lesser effort.

Doesn’t answer the question at all BUT you forgot this one on your awesome list @Seelix :-)

Seelix's avatar

Looks like I’ve missed a couple! I’m not sure whether you guys are posting some of them as “awesome” or “not awesome”, though ;)
