RADIO GA GA
Written by Roger Taylor for The Works, their first album to be recorded in Los Angeles. Released in the
UK on January 23rd 1984, produced by Queen and Mack. The track was inspired by MTV, and itself
inspired a video based on Fritz Lang’s famous silent movie Metropolis. The track peaked at No. 2 in the
UK chart, and reached No. 1 in 19 other countries. Taylor wrote the song when his three year old son
Felix, was listening to some bad record on the radio and uttered the words, ‘Radio Ca Ca.’ In fact, listen
closely and you will hear that the lyric never actually changed!
