  • Turn it up!
    Girl!
    I'm working hard, you're working too
    We do it every day
    For every minute I have to work
    I need a minute of play
    Day in day out all week long
    Things go better with rock
    The only time I turn it down
    Is when I'm sleepin' it off

    Turn up the radio
    I need the music, gimme some more
    Turn up the radio
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more

    Now listen!
    I want to shake, I want to dance
    So count it off a one, two, three
    I feel the beat, I'm in a trance
    No better place to be
    Daytime nighttime, anytime
    Things go better with rock
    I'm goin' twenty four hours a day
    I can't seem to stop

    Turn up the radio
    I need the music, gimme some more
    Turn up the radio
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more
    Turn up the radio
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more

    Turn up the radio
    I need the music, gimme some more
    (Yeah!)
    Turn up the radio
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more
    (Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!)
    Turn up the radio
    (Come on!)
    I need the music, gimme some more
    (Everybody)
    Turn up the radio
    (Turn it up!)
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more
    (Whoooooooooooooooooooo!)
    Turn up the radio
    (Turn it up!)
    I need the music, gimme some more
    (Gimme some more)
    Turn up the radio
    (Whew! Come on)
    I want to feel it got to gimme some more
    (Gimme all you got!)

  • William from Cambridge,ohiowas the papermate pen product drop the first deliberate product placement in a video or movie..
  • Wheat from Tacoma,washingtonStill listen to the great song today, cool band, cool video, and I graduated H.S. in 1984, so that was a great year too.
  • Chris from Atlanta, GaThe girl that caught the pen (the crappy Paper Mate click pen that is thrown into the crowd as the band got into the limo) looks familiar. Bits parts, etc... Any idea who she is? Curious what came of her "career".
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 16th 1985, Autograph performed "Turn Up The Radio" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'
