Radio Ga Ga Lyrics
I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only friend
Through teenage nights
I had to know
I heard it on my radio
You gave them all
Those old time stars
Through wars of worlds
Invaded by Mars
You made 'em...

Remembering the times when Radio was like a enlighten godly friend for Freddie Mercury and the people that had the power to entertaine our imagination that came through the airwaves. Like the 1938 Orson Welles War Of The Worlds alien invasion of the Earth that came through the Radio. Unfortunately caused panic attacks in some people 'cause it was believed to be actually happening,but for most it was a good entertainment. Compare to the times in 1984 when Radio was losing it's importance to promote good music and imagination, only getting more Goo,Goo,Ga,Ga luney tunes. Yearning for the Radio to make a comeback in the future, which it did a little in the present time with Conservitive Radio.

Wow! If you've read any books about Queen or watched documentaries on the band,you would know that this song is about how radio is in jeopardy of becoming obsolete due to MTV and VH1. They are reminiscing and pleading with the radio to not go away. They believe that the radio has not even come close to reaching its peak.They are letting us know that the radio will prevail despite all.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Lady Gaga got her stage name from the Queen song, 'Radio Ga-Ga', when music producer Rob Fusari compared her singing to that of Freddie Mercury.
I read this on Wiki answers, thank you.....all credit to the guy who wrote it.

please, I read it somewhere on the internet. Lady Gaga choose her Alias because she is a huge fan of queen. So she choose to use the name "Gaga" because this is one of her favorite Queen songs.
