SUNDAY SONG SELECTION: TWILIGHT ZONE BY GOLDEN EARRING

It would have made sense to use R.E.M.'s cover of 'Superman' for this week's song selection because the band called it quits this week. However, we've already used that song in a previous selection.

I was uncertain what song would be picked for this week and a moment of inspiration hit me while driving the family to my in-law's home. I was listening to one of those classic rock shows that are aired on Sunday mornings and they played 'Radar Love' by Golden Earring. That song is a jam and then I realized that they had another jam, 'Twilight Zone'. When we pick songs at Champion City, we look for something that references geek culture, so this one fits the criteria.

Golden Earring was formed fifty years ago in the Netherlands. Today's selection is their 1982 hit.
