Video Killed the Radio Star
The Buggles Lyrics


Oh, a, oh
Oh, a, oh

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

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine on 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
Oh, a, a, a, oh

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

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 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 the blame on VCR

You are a radio star (oh, a, oh)
You are a radio star (oh, a, oh)

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
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star) video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
(You are a radio star) video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

42 years and counting. Great songs never fade away.

I have this on vinyl and on 45 RPM

43 years old! It came out during the summer of 79. It just wasn’t an instant success. Technically a 70s song 😜

1980 was a great year and this song got the decade off to a good start.
