169. My Radio

1 0 0

"Queen" & Freddie Mercury have always been very interested in the phenomenon and the process of the radio. With"Radio Ga Ga" they try to express a protest against the stupid, idiotic and boring content of radio broadcasting: Radio GaGa, Radio blah blah...

Queen considers the radio as a dependable friend, who gives everything that one needs to know. Queen asks the broadcasters: "not to become some background noise, a backdrop for the girls and boys, who just don't know or just don't care, and just complain when the radio is not there." They ask that the radio might stick around, because "we might miss the radio when we grow tired of all this visual." Lady Gaga borrowed her name from this song. Indeed, the visual effect and the funny outfit takes all the attention and puts the musical element in the background.

Anyhow, the radio has not played its role yet. Queen :' You've yet to have your finest hour".(Winston Churchill, 1940 "This was their finest hour" ,Queen lyric "You've yet to have your finest hour") The power of the radio is not to be forgotten still (Orson Welles' 1938 broadcast of H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds in the lyric "through wars of worlds/invaded by Mars")
