Culture Notes: Rave on

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, January 23, 2008 8:06 PM (Eastern)

Originally I was going to do a feature on songs about that we've all been Clear Channeled ad infinitum, no one sings about the radio anymore. Oh I know that's simplistic; without the Net to replace radio in the first place, the likelihood of the once-brilliant medium boiling down to muzak would have been slim.

So I got together three videos: Donna Summer's On the Radio, R.E.M.'s Radio Song, and Queen's Radio Ga-Ga.

Decided against Elvis Costello's Radio Radio...and, Costello is doing Buddy Holly, the way everyone else does Elvis. I had a sudden desire to hear Buddy Holly again.


What popped up when I was searching for Holly:

Rave On by John Lennon

So I thought I'd share this moment rather than the radio-on-radio concept. I'd never heard this cover before, in all the odd bootleg Beatles recordings I've heard over the years. Thanks icepick141!

If you're old enough to remember this song, you're probably old enough to know it commemorates the day Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson died in a plane crash, along with the pilot of the plane, Roger Peterson. It's a sad song, yet I loved it when I was a kid, and its many references to various pop bands of the time make it a bit historic as well.

Don McLean - American Pie
