"Radar Radio" is a single performed by Giorgio Moroder featuring Joe Pizzulo and written by Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock. It was featured in the film Top Gun. The song was released in 1986 as a B-side to the hit split single that featured Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" on the A-side (which won the Academy Award for Best Original Song as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1987). "Radar Radio" has not been included on any of the Top Gun soundtracks issued to date, making the vinyl single the only release. The song has never been released on CD and cassette.

In the film Top Gun, the song is heard playing on a juke box at a bar during the last scene of the film as Tom Cruise's character has a drink. Only a few seconds of the song are heard before "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" comes on the juke box.
