"Nothing On (But The Radio)" is a song written by Lady Gaga, Billy Steinberg and Joshua Berman Alexander in 2010.

Background

The song surfaced in October 2010 as a demo labelled under Gaga's name. On July 18, 2012, Gaga was leaving her hotel in Chicago before Pitchfork Festival when the car got stuck at a red light. Some fans ran to the car to which Gaga rolled down the window and stuck out half of her body to sign autographs. During that short moment, revamped version of the song was heard playing in the car. When the fans asked David Russell, if he could reveal reveal the first letters of Gaga's new single from upcoming album, he replied with a coy, "N O. ;)" which could been a hint to a song (or just a simple no). However the song did't make the final cut of the ARTPOP.

When RuPaul was asked which Gaga song he likes the most, he replied:

"You know, I believe it’s the one I did with her called “Fashion.” I love that song. Also, there’s this other one that’s part of this unreleased package that floated around the internet called Nothing On But The Radio. I don’t know the story behind it. I have a whole album of b-sides and unreleased Lady Gaga stuff. I don’t know how I got it."

The song may be a reference to a quote by Marilyn Monroe:

"It's not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on."

Lyrics

I'm calling 'cause I need you.
You know I need you so desperately.
You know how bad I can get,
And you know, how good I can be.

I'm calling just to tell you,
Get here and I'll make it worth your while.
I can make you some food.
Boy, and then I can make you smile.

'Cause I've got nothing on but the radio,
And I've got nothing on for tonight.
(Nothing) Nothing on but the radio,
And I'm tuned into your station tonight,
With me tonight.

You better get here soon,
Or you know what I will do.
Got too much time on my hands.
Wait 'til I get my hands on you.

'Cause I've got nothing on but the radio,

And I've got nothing on for tonight.
(Nothing) Nothing on but the radio,
And I'm tuned into your station tonight,
With me tonight.

When you get here, boy, we can dance.
Our hands on the headboard, it's our defense.
I've turned the lights down low,
And I've got nothing on but the radio.

Got too much time on my hands.
Wait 'til I get my hands on you.

'Cause I've got nothing on but the radio,
And I've got nothing on for tonight.
(Nothing) Nothing on but the radio,
And I'm tuned into your station tonight,
With me tonight.

Oh, Oh, Oh
I've got nothing on but the radio,
And I've got nothing on for tonight.
(Nothing) Nothing on but the radio,
And I'm tuned into your station tonight,
With me tonight.
