I loved this song as a kid. With this 12" you get the long and short version of the song. This song was really my introduction to Golden Earring. After this I went back to discover their hits from the 1970's. Hearing the two time periods I think these guys made a nice transition from a straight up rock band to a sort or 80's, MTV style band. They are pretty much still a rock band, but they've added little lazer type sounds in there to make them sound sort of new wavey.
This song was also famous for having a censored video. I remember seeing this video and when the naked girl walkes across the room the image was darkened. Not like with an obvious black box, but she was just darkened more to a silhouette. But thanks to youtube you can enjoy the uncensored version.
And after the video, you can check out these vinyl rips.
