A great song from the 80's.

I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.

Oh-a oh-a

They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.

Oh-a oh-a
I met your children
Oh-a oh-a
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

Pictures came and broke your heart.
Oh a-a-a oh

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

Oh-a oh-a
You were the first one.
Oh-a oh-a
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
Oh a-a-a oh
Oh a-a-a oh

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
Put all the blame on VTR.

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

You are a radio star
Video killed the radio star
...

VTR= videotape recorder

I thought this song was about the radio (killed by the TV), but no, it's about a singer. This is the wikipedia:

"Video Killed the Radio Star" is a song by the British synthpop/New Wave group The Buggles, released in 1979. It celebrates the golden days of radio, describing a singer whose career is cut short by television. The song topped several music charts and has been covered by many recording artists. It was the first music video shown on MTV in North America and has been widely parodied in popular media.
