Still one of my all-time favorite songs, from the 70's or any era ...

Radar Love
(G.Kooymans/B.Hay - Snamyook Music)

Ive been drivin all night,
my hands wet on the wheel
Theres a voice in my head
that drives my heel
Its my baby callin,
says: I need you here
And its a half past four
and Im shifting gear

When she is lonely
and the longing gets too much
She sends a cable
coming in from above
Dont need a phone at all

Weve got a thing thats called Radar Love
Weve got a wave in the air,
Radar Love

The radios playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lees "Coming On Strong"
The road has got me hypnotized
and Im speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely,
and Im sure Ive had enough
She sends her comfort,
comin in from above
Dont need a letter at all

Weve got a thing thats called Radar Love
Weve got a line in the sky,
Radar Love

No more speed, Im almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars drove down real slow

And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee's "Coming On Strong"
and the newsman sang his same song
One more radar love is gone

When I get lonely and Im sure Ive had enough
She sends her comfort, coming in from above
We dont need no letter at all

Weve got a thing thats called Radar Love
Weve got a line in the sky
Weve got a thing thats called Radar Love
Weve got a thing thats called,
Radar Love

3. I saw Golden Earring perform live once...
They opened for Rush once in Kansas City. (That's the GROUP Rush, not the talk show guy).

I had never heard anything of theirs except for Radar Love, but I was actually quite impressed -- they put on a heckuva show.

8. They had another somewhat big song, about a decade later.
"Twilight Zone" Got a lot of play on MTV at the time.

5. That song has caused more speeding tickets...
If you haven't gone 90 mph at some point while listening to that song you just haven't lived!
