Video Kill The Radio Star - Amber Pacific


I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning it 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 and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.
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.

Pictures came and broke your heart.

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

You were the first one.
Oh-a 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 to far.

My radio star.

You are my radio star
You are my radio star
You are my radio star (video killed the radio star)
You are my radio star (video killed the radio star)
You are my radio star (video killed the radio star)
Video killed the radio star.

Pictures came and broke your heart. Put the blame on VCR.
In my mind and in my car, we can't rewind we've gone to far.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
