"Radar Love" (1973, Number 13) and "Twilight Zone" (1982, Number 10)
This chugging Dutch outfit's first chart success came from a pulsing track about a man communicating with his lover while driving – something that's commonplace now, sure, but during the pre-cellphone era it required mental powers of a more advanced nature. The strident "Twilight Zone," which hit for them nine years later, is a spoken-sung chronicle of a descent into madness inspired by the spyjinks of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity. Years after its release, it would be incorporated into the Twilight Zone pinball game.
