"TV vs. Radio" is an unreleased song by Duran Duran, written by the five original band members during the Astronaut demo sessions.

About the song Edit

The song was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.

During this period a teaser CD with short demo versions of a few of the unfinished songs (used to demonstrate the new work to potential labels and producers) was leaked to the Internet and quickly copied throughout the band's fan base. The songs on the CD were "Virus", "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", "TV vs Radio", "Taste the Summer", "Salt in the Rainbow" and "Pretty Ones".

The band were very unhappy about the leak and with the exception of "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" which became their first single and "Taste the Summer", the leaked songs were not included in the final version of Astronaut. "Virus" later appeared as a bonus track on a Japanese edition of Astronaut.

Lyrics Edit

Hey wait a minute - news:

Here we go again

So open to abuse

So one night stand

It's just a milky breast

Oh gimme gimme yeah (woo-hoo)



We don't really care

We're watching cartoons



We want that music (we won't stop)

Bangin' on the radio (we love you)

And we want TV (stop)

What is gettin' on that video? (video)

We use it (we won't stop)

TV versus radio (we love you)

Believe me (stop)

We need it more than ever now, you know (video)



I'll get down on your knees

If that's what you love

A little striptease

A little push and show

Do you scroll your prayers

For daddy money, yeah (woo-hoo)



We don't really care

We're watching cartoons



We want that music (we won't stop)

Bangin' on the radio (we love you)

And we want TV (stop)

What is gettin' on that video? (video)

We use it (we won't stop)

TV versus radio (we love you)

Believe me (stop)

We need it more than ever now, you know (video)
