Radar Love - Golden Earring

White Lion also did a killer cover of this song.

I loveloveLOVE Golden Earring, but you picked a particular weakness of mine from the Deep Purple canon -- that song is just perfect and I'd be hard pressed to tell you of any flaws.

Argh.

Lemme rephrase: Highway Star always gets me going!

And yeah, I'd also prefer Burn to Highway Star in this respect... whenEVER I put Burn on the old turntable I'm like a blind drunk Homer riding a jackass backwards cross town

I know it...this rendered me entirely distracted all day, causing me to get absolutely nothing accomplished. I think for the benefit of all of our productivity and satisfied curiosities, flipflop should up with the video.

Thank you.
