Re: Radar Love or Highway Star

Not one thing wrong with Highway Star, but Radar Love is the official Road Trip song.


Also an official Get in a Good Mood song...

Radar Love . . . as Althea says it's THE road trip anthem and just a better song.

Re: Radar Love or Highway Star

Both great songs. Radar Love has more nostalgic value for me, but I gotta go with Highway Star. I love the driving, aggressive feel of it.
...although the cool riff in the middle of Radar Love (with the horns) is worth the price of admission.

Re: Radar Love or Highway Star

Highway Star is the better song

Confession time: I prefer White Lion's version to Golden Earring's
