    Smile Solved: punk rock song, radio-oh-oh

    unfortunately all i have is that one line of the chorus. and it's stuck in my head! i know it's some partially obscure rock band but i've got a mental block.

    chorus is radio-oh oh, radio-oh oh, etc. i believe they repeat it several times for chorus, and then the lyrics are lost on me. i've tried google search but to no avail. don't let me down, tiger.

    Radio Ga Ga by Queen





    2nd choice : Radio Radio - Elvis Costello

    On My Radio by The Selecter it's Ska, not Punk Rock

    Video:
    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=pkKr_u9IQTQ

    Lyrics:
    I bought my baby a red radio
    He played it all day a-go-go a-go-go
    He liked to dance to it down in the streets
    He said he loved me but he loved the beat

    But when I switch on I rotate the dial
    I could see it there driving him so wild
    I bought my baby a red radio
    He said he loved me but he had to go

    Chorus
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    On my radio on my radio on my radio

    I bought my baby a red radio
    He played it all day a-go-go a-go-go
    He liked to dance to it down in the streets
    He said he loved me but he loved the beat

    Chorus x2

    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio
    It's just the same old show on my radio...

    I bought my baby a red radio
    A red radio a-go-go a-go-go
    A red radio I rotate the dial
    A red radio driving him so wild
    A red radio he had to go

    Default radiooooo

    no none of those are correct. it's not a ska, classic rock, or salsa song.

    male singer, also

    it's a PUNK song

    i know this.

    more ideas?

    Ok, calm down... Punk is a mentality I know this


    A lot of people have a lot of different idea to what punk is:

    for example, to me, punk is Sex Pistols, Clash, Sham 69, Jilted John, Buzzcocks, Undertones...

    to some people, Green Day are punk

    to others (I don't for the life of me know why) Good Charlotte are punk.

    Talking I'm with Pavonis on this one

    Could it be Wall of Voodoo's Mexican Radio? They sing "I'm on a Mexican, whoa, radio.." ? Does the pitch change when they sing "oh oh" or whatever? Do you remember anything even remotely mundane about it?

    Hi, are you sure it's "radio oh oh"
    Can it be "stereo oh oh" ???
    In that case try this one:
    Supergrass - Pumping up your stereo

    1. Supergrass are as punk as a teabag
    2. The song is Pumping On your Stereo
    3. They sing "Can you hear us humping on your stereo?" not "...Sterero oh oh oh"
    * Difference of opinion is not argument, only difference.
    * Just because you don't like something, doesn't make it sh*t
    * You are all individual, just like everyone else.
