Golden Earing

Band Name Origins:

  • Golden Earring originally started as The Tornado's, in 1964. But after an international hit from an English band with the same name, they changed their name to The Golden Earrings, after the song by Peggy Lee. In the late sixties the band name was shortened to Golden Earring. In an interview on Dutch television, Coldplay's lead singer Chris Martin called the greatest rockband of Holland: "Golden Herring".

Super Long Pop Songs:

"Radar Love" Length: 6:26
"Radar Love" is track #1 on the album, "Moontan" (1973). It reaching #13 on Billboard's Pop Chart, also reaching #7 on the UK Singles Chart, making them one of their biggest singles, the other being is "Twilight Zone". On Billboard's Pop Chart, I think that this song making them as a one-hit wonder artist since "Radar Love" released in 1973. Because, first, no one singles by them can be reaching the Top 40 of Billboard's Pop Chart like this single until 1982. Second, usually a band or an artist become a one-hit wonder artist because only one song that reaching the Top 40 not reaching the Top 40 with many songs or not reaching #1 with only one song. However, it can be blocked by "Twilight Zone", released in 1982, which was reaching #10 on Billboard's Pop Chart. However, "Radar Love" still entering them as a one-hit wonder artist in the UK Singles Chart because it reaching #7 and no one singles by them can be reaching the Top 40 of the UK Singles Chart like this single.

"Are You Receiving Me?" Length: 9:32
Featured on their breakthrough album titled 'Moontan' (1973), it is their longest song (94 seconds longer than 1982's "Twilight Zone"). 'Moontan' contain their first successful single titled "Radar Love" which was peaked at #13 on Billboard's Pop Chart (#10 on the same chart for 1982's "Twilight Zone"). 'Moontan' was also would be the first and only album to be certified Gold by the RIAA. After all, since 1973, no one album would be certified Gold like 'Moontan' (for example 'Grab It for a Second', 'Cut', 'N.E.W.S.', etc.).
