  • Buggles - Video killed the radio star 1979

    I heard you on the wireless back in 52
    lying awake intent a tuning in on you
    if I was young it didn't stop you coming through

    They took the credit for your second symphony
    re-written by machine and new technology
    and now I understand the problems you can see

    Oh oh -- I met your children
    oh oh -- what did you tell them
    video killed the radio star
    video killed the radio star
    pictures came and broke your heart
    we can't rewind we've gone too far

    And now we meet in an abandoned studio
    we hear the playback and it seems so long ago
    and you remember the jingle used to go

    Oh oh -- you were the first one
    oh oh -- you were the last one
    video killed the radio star
    video killed the radio star
    in my mind and in my car
    we can't rewind we've gone too far

    Video killed the radio star
    video killed the radio star
    in my mind and in my car
    we can't rewind we've gone too far

    (Instrumental)

    Video killed the radio star
    video killed the radio star

    In my mind and in my car
    we can't rewind we've gone too far
    pictures came and broke your heart
    look I'll play my VCR

    Oh radio star
    Oh 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
    video killed the radio star 172.68.189.47

    Internet killed rock stars. Youtubers are the new idols of the youth.

    This used to be my favorite song until will.i.am became a thing. He ruined it for me and I couldn't ever listen to it, again. Here I am today glad that he has no career. 🤗

    Saw this on early MTV. My next door neighbors had cable color tv! It even had a remote control. Seriously!!! It was hot shit. Anyway, saw this and watched MTV a lot, but it never took over the radio. It added to all our listening enjoyment. It was great for the arts in general and is the mother of You Tube. IMO
