Tiresome Radio Edits

Somehow, long and redundant bits got into the radio edits of some songs. For example:

  • “Twilight Zone” by Golden Earring (instrumental, same nine notes for about 2 minutes)
  • “Message in a Bottle” by the Police (“sendin’ out an S.O.S….” about a thousand times at the end)
  • “Rock and Roll All Nite” by KISS (“IIIIIIIII wanna rock and roll all night… and party every day!” about a thousand times at the end)

The bit in “Twilight Zone” is in the middle of the song, but I don’t understand why the latter two aren’t stopped early on the radio.

Yes, I still listen to the radio! It’s called the car.
