My beacon’s been moved under moon and star. Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
So that’s what he was singing? Cool song, but still prefer “Radar Love.”
Hey, cool, analog displays!
As a kid I loved the song but the video gave me nightmares.
“Radar Love” is okay, but this right here is one of my favorite songs of all time. Of all time.
Fun fact: Golden Earring has been a going concern longer than the Rolling Stones, and their lineup has contained the same core members since 1970 (only ZZ Top has had a more stable lineup, among chart-topping rock bands). Though they’re still hugely popular in Europe, they haven’t toured outside Europe since
1982. Edit: 1984.
I love to play this song. Very satisfying to go from the main riffs to that bass riff on my baritone Gretsch.
Agree. I think this might be the first song I bought as a single MP3.
Hannah and I were blasting the stereo and singing this at the top of our lungs as we pulled into the elementary school drop off this morning.
I saw them in L.A. in 1984
A college roommate took me to see them - fun night - the drummer had this insane setup.
Awesome. I was just listening to this, not 20 minutes ago.
I saw them at the Santa Monica Civic. I think they opened with Radar Love, played it again before an intermission, followed intermission with Radar Love and then played it for an encore.
Can’t argue with that.
I was jamming this last weekend!
MY MOTHERFUCKING JAM! Seriously…the 7-minute-long full album version of this song is so monstrously epic.
Any musicians here use Reaper? I propose we record us a cover version. I’ll see if I can lay down drum and bass tracks this weekend, then forward them to the next volunteer to add some guitar, keys, or vox.
If you haven’t heard of Reaper, it’s a swell alternative to ProTools that costs all of $60… and the evaluation version is the full, uncrippled version so you can see if you like it with no risk. http://www.reaper.fm/ (end plug)
Anyway, I’ve been meaning to record a cover version of this for ages, and this’d be a fun and easy way to virtually jam with you guys.
