Well, I met her Sunday morning
She said, "I thought you were dead"
She was singing good and loud
To the songs in her head
She's got Heaven in her pocket
And it jangles with her change
Down a pedestrian thoroughfare
To God's own radio

She said, "nothing ever mattered
'Cos nothing ever changes
All the lies that you wrote
Are ripped from my pages
I don't need you no more
And I'll never look back
'Cos I'm tuned in now
To God's own radio"

There's a sound on the airwaves
That's tripping the scene
We've got the number one song
If you know what I mean
From the back end of nowhere
To Idaho
Hey, look out here we go,
It's God's own radio

Well, I can't abandon
The thought that she's sinking
I look in her eyes
And I know what she's thinking
She says, "hey, you can't touch me,
You aint seen the light"
Hell, you got that right.
On God's own radio
I only met her in the morning
And by ten – fifteen
She was trying to turn me
To the clean–living scene
Well, I made my excuses
Said I had to go
She's got her own show
On God's own radio

There's a sound on the airwaves
That's tripping the scene
We've got the number one song
If you know what I mean
From the back end of nowhere
To Idaho
They don't play Rock and Roll
On God's own radio

Somebody needs a nap. "Hit the singer in mouth"? I'll classify your comment to a bad. It's only Rock and Roll but I like it. ₤7.7

I just spoke to the singer.  He feels the same way about you.
What a fun headphones song! (What they do with stereo effects...)

I only get that urge with certain instrumental songs.

Isn't that RP?
Oh, except God wouldn't play Rush.

Well maybe something from their second album.

Everyone asking where the aliens are, I'd love to hear someone singing about radio paradise.

Umm....I don't get it :^ / This song is so freakin' cool. Woo hoo. The only thing wrong with it is it's too short.

I get that every time Counting Crows comes up. {#Frustrated} 

                           It's happening,  now immidiately clear the area
                 On the loose, now escapee a thick skinned ass celebrity
                       We're getting some reports, he may be going west
                              But, if you ask me, I saw now the escapee
                                      Rubbing shoulders with Pegasus
                                   Swapping his skin with some wings.
           Please disregard the conflicting reports of going into dead poets society,
           If you ask me, he never thinks hard enough to  ..foxtrot -india - november

Nice comeback for Escape Club.  Still love watching the ladies line dance to
"Wild Wild West" at the country bar....



 
Holy crap!! same band did that song? Hated that song when it came out back in 91 or 92.  This one is much much better.
I like this song.  Some of the bad comments are probably from people who can't get over this band's past pop work. If I told you this was some new band called The Saince Seven, you would probably think it is a cool song. So much better than the lame Natilie Merchant crap that is played way too often here.  
Derivative is the best I can say of this. Dead 60s and Arctic Monkeys basically ought to have a half case for plagiarism each.

Wow. Great song. I just ordered the CD. Hope all of it's as good as this one.

 
Well, it's okay, but this sucker rocks.

I can't believe I've been listening to this on RP all this time, thinking they were singing "Got some radio."  I guess I never looked at the song title until now!

Lovin the gag and the song.  How old is this thing?
Not bad!

Why does he say "if you know what I mean"? That implies that what he actually means is something else? Is "Number One song" a euphemism for something?!?

You're assuming this wonderful piece of pop fluff was written with lyrical meaning?  I'm just going to assume it fills in the meter and rhyme scheme -- and that's it.

I'm thinking an 8 is appropriate.  Got my feet moving under the desk, and acted as a nice little 'palate cleanser', if you know what I mean.   
I like it but..... I actually don't what you mean.
7 > 9 - serious jump.

marvelous...

I suspect he is genuinely asking a question.

As clearly he hasn't the foggiest notion as to what he "means".

I swear, I swear.....RP plays better stuff at night....Steve are you listening??

It may just be in there to get the rhyme with "trippin' the scene."

{#Stop}
OMG.  Did you really have to remind us?  
Wow.  These guys certainly have evolved.  Unless "Wild Wild West" was not indicative of their sound at the time.

Love the huge turnaround, Escape Club.  Keep it coming.  (BTW, always enjoyed Wild Wild West when it came on the radio, now reading on Wikipedia that it was banned in the UK for being sexist and offensive?  Where was I?) 
Shades of Gary Myrick and the Figures Batman!
This is getting a lot of play here. Maybe too much?

A great early Sunday morning toe-tapper to get my day started!  Great stuff!

Nice info - thanks!
FINALLY A SONG ABOUT RP - CONGRATS BILL+REBECCA!
Went to see them last night at The Mint in LA, they were awesome!!! Hope they do more gigs soon.

The radio has been many wonderful things to many people over the duration of its existence. Mostly fantastic "theater of the mind" . In my day...we bought them from department stores and they were larger than a shoebox and smaller than a microwave oven and we would carry them on our shoulders close to our ears loud enough to drown out the immediate surrounding urban noise. Of course,everyone within a 100' radius would be subjected to the radio's theater as well. We also bought a lot of cassette tapes to be played on the radio device (carried in purse like satchel on opposing hip for counterbalance) and twice as many D-cell batteries to play radio.  AHH, the good ole' days of yore. Atari, IROCS and Zima.

I'm still trying to figure out how this is the same band made popular by "Wild, Wild West" in the 80s.
This is played way too much on here! 14 times in the past month??
Pretty sure RP is God's Own Radio!!
Thank you for the new music.. its what I listen for in RP... more of this? NEW GREAT STUFF
"The Escape Club is the only British artist to have a #1 hit in America while never charting in the UK." - Wiki
Very cool track that I would call Modern Blues Rock like the new Black Keys or Jack White with humrous lyrics.
A fabulously catchy tune!  These guys are back in a major way.  
Great song!  One of many on this album.  The Escape Club is back and they haven't wavered.  The sound is still refreshing, youthful and timeless.  People of any age would enjoy this album. 
Wow! So blown away by this whole album, can not stop listening to it! Love love love it!!
Great song - though my fav on this album is "Waiting for the Sun"! Welcome back guys!!!!

Sounds like god's radio is AM
This Rocks! So good to see these guys back with something fresh.

Daaamn, that was amazing. Shame the rest of the album isn't as good as this song.
I don't agree, I think the whole album is amazing!
Love this tune, it has that blues meets techno thing

Apparently it's 2/4 of the original band.

Nice tune!.
I like it! At almost 3 p.m. on the East Coast - sitting at my desk - it woke me up and got my toes tapping! Good sound.
