When the world starts to get you down
And nothing seems to go your way
And the noise of the maddening crowd
Makes you feel like you're going to go insane

There's a glow of a distant light
Calling you to come outside
To feel the wind on your face and your skin
And it's here I begin my story

Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio

It was time that I opened my eyes
I'm leaving the past behind
Nothing's ever what it seems
Including this time and these crazy dreams

I'm stuck like a moth to a flame
I'm so tired of playing this game
I don't know how I got to this state
Let me out of my cage cause I'm dying

Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio

Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio

I just wanna get in my car
I wanna go fast and I gotta go far
Don't ask me to explain how I feel
'Cause I don't want to say where I'm going

Turn down the noise and turn up the volume
Don't have a choice cause the temperatures pounding
Leaving this place is the last thing I do
That I want to escape with a person just like you

I'm stuck like a moth to a flame
I'm so sick and tired of playing this game
We gotta have fun it it's all that we do
Gotta shake up the system and break all the rules
Gotta turn up the radio until the speakers blow

Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio

Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
There's somethings you don't need to know
Just let me turn up the radio

Turn up the radio
Just let me turn up the radio
Just let me turn up the radio

    I heard a very brief snippet of this song earlier today. As with most snippets of unreleased madonna tracks, i fell in love with it. I'm sooo looking forward to madonna's new album and march 2012 cant get here fast enough. Its almost a full 4 years since the fabulous hard candy (april 2008) and that is wayyy to long between albums. I know ur a busy lady two tours, writing, directing and producing a film and raising children but the music scene has been empty without you. No one can fill the void or take ur place. Here's to the one and only queen of pop... Turn up the radio... Its madonna!!!
