Lesser Known Classic Rock Sunday: Golden Earring – “Radar Love”

Weren’t born in 1940?  Missed out on the hippie era, the swingin’ 70s, the relatively horrible 80s, the carpenter jean 90s?  Well you’re in luck and have found the right place.

Some songs were made to curl up and listen to, some were made to shake your booty, and some songs have a kick-happy drummer behind the kit who takes complete control of the song.  When he’s joined by a bassist who likes to be repetitive in the best of ways, the two forces combined can create a song that one can drive to (that’s why they say a song is “driving”).  A perfect example of this is below.  Yeah, right there! Danish rock band Golden Earring’s 1973 minor hit “Radar Love” is not only the perfect song to put the convertible top down for, but the song itself is even about driving.  That’s two for two in my book.
