about

"Radio" is the second single to be released from Dara Tucker's "Oklahoma Rain" project. Radio is a high-energy throwback to a time when fun, organic, harmony-rich music was the norm. The "Radio" single and its accompanying video take the listener on a journey through time, and bring to life that feeling of discovery you had when you heard that 'can't-be-missed' song ringing out across the airwaves.

lyrics

Songs that woulda made it on the radio of yesteryear
Been so long since I could turn it on and hear those songs so crystal clear
So I'll say it like I really wanna say it
But today I think they'd really never play it on the radio

Repeat Chorus 1

Songs that woulda made it on the radio of yesteryear
Been so long since I could turn it on and hear those songs so crystal clear
So I'll say it like I really wanna say it
But today I think they'd really never play it on the radio

Verse 1

Just want to play that music loud and clear
That kept me singing long ago
I'll write a melody so you can hear
And the whole wide world will know

Chorus 2

Singing songs that woulda made it on the radio of yesteryear
Been so long since I could hear those songs so crystal clear
So I'll say it though I know they'll never play it
Safe to say I know I'll probably never make on the radio

Verse 2 (Not Heard on Demo)

Can't tell you what that music means to me
No time or season can destroy
I swear it echoed like a symphony
As it filled our hearts with joy

Chorus 3

Songs that woulda made it on the radio of yesteryear
Been so long since I could turn it on and hear those songs so crystal clear
So tonight I'm gonna go ahead and write it
But I'm certain that you're never gonna find it on the radio

So I'll say it like I really wanna say it
But today I think they'd probably never play it on the radio
So I'll say it though I know they'll never play it
Safe to say I know I'll probably never make it on the radio

Vamp
They'll never play it on the radio
We may as well just turn our lights down low
They'll never play it on the radio
We'll have to find another place to go
They'll never play it on the radio
We'll sing this melody from long ago
They'll never play it on the radio
Do do do do do do do do do do... (Repeat)
