His Sweet Surprise  Music & Lyrics

“Radio (When I Listen To)”

Radio Radio

When I listen to the

When I listen to the radio

Radio


It's strange how thinking of

A song you first heard years ago

Can jog your memory and clarity

Comes wafting through the fog

You're there again

And living in that moment for a while

It's bittersweet

Or it might make you smile


When I listen to the

When I listen to the radio to the radio

My heart is pumping and my feet are jumping

To the radio the radio

The music's playing and my head is swaying


It's strange how suddenly a song

That's playing on the radio

Can bring the past

So close you feel reality's on hold

A kiss/a friend/A sunny day

A moment by the sea

A broken heart

It's raining memory


When I listen to the radio to the radio

My heart is pumping and my feet are jumping

To the radio the radio

The music's playing and my head is swaying

Radio Radio Radio


And now they're playing something new

And I get into the groove

The music is recording me

All the things that I am doing

And the people I am viewing

Will be put away for me to see

Another time


When I listen to the radio to the radio

My heart is pumping and my feet are jumping

To the radio to the radio

The music's playing and my head is swaying

When I listen to the radio to the radio

My heart is pumping and my feet are jumping

To the radio to the radio

The music's playing and my head is swaying

Radio Radio Radio Radio (listen to)

Radio

Radio (listen to)

Radio (listen to)

Written in April 2012.  The riff came first then the lyrics. The title speaks for itself. It’s about how memories of a person or a particular time are brought to mind by a song being played out of the blue, like what often happens on the radio. Even new songs can quickly become a soundtrack for a period of your life. I have many songs that bring me back to the recent past or long ago. I think it’s something lots of people would identify with.

Released as single June 17.  Extended version playing here. Click to order.
