22 April 2012 - Electric Six - Radio Ga Ga

I wanted to share with you what I consider to be an underrated song by Queen, covered by an underrated, straight-ahead rock band from Detroit.

Electric Six is a band that sometimes tends to be a little bit on the goofy side. So, for them to do such a great tribute to Queen, in such a straight-forward manner, shows how much respect they have for the band and the song.  And let's talk about the song for a minute.  It was never a big hit in the US, but it should have been.  What a great tribute to old-time radio this song is.  It's kind of a companion to "Video Killed The Radio Star", without the negative slant.

So, appreciate the cover and the song.
