  • Well I'm not uptight
    Not unattracted
    Turn me on tonight
    'Cause I'm radioactive
    Radioactive

    There's not a fight
    And I'm not your captive
    Turn me loose tonight
    'Cause I'm radioactive
    Radioactive

    I want to stay with you
    I want to play with you baby
    I want to lay with you
    And I want you to know

    Got to concentrate
    Don't be distractive
    Turn me on tonight
    'Cause I'm radioactive
    Radioactive
    Radioactive
    Radioactive

    I want to stay with you
    I don't want to play with you
    I want just to lay with you
    And I want you to know

    Got to concentrate
    Don't be distractive
    Turn me on tonight
    'Cause I'm radioactive oh yeah
    Oh yeah radioactive
    Don't you stand, stand too close
    You might catch it Writer/s: PAUL RODGERS

  • Greg from Portland, CtThe Firm were important for me because their existence gave me an opportunity to see Pagey from the 5th row at the Spectrum in Philly. A late bloomer, I had seen the mighty Led Zep one time, in NYC on Monday night, June 13, 1977, but I was far back from the stage in MSG. Also saw Beck, Clapton, Page at A.R.M.S. concert in NYC in 1983, with the Beach Boys in Philly on July 4, 1985 and at Live Aid, again in Philly, just 9 days later. But it was only on The Firm's second tour that I got to see Jimmy up close, and I will never forget it!
  • Diane from Longview, WaWhile they may have technically had only one hit, their album "The Firm" peaked at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart and #15 in the UK, which in my opinion isn't to shabby. I'm not sure how much PR these albums received prior to release. To refer to them as "one-hit wonders" minimizes the quality of the total body of work created by this band. They produced 2 albums together. Both of which are great albums with some amazing music.
