It also hit the Top 10 in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, and Spain. Like other famous songs of the era (“Stairway to Heaven”, “Aqualung”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”), “Radar Love” is composed as a suite with several distinctive and quite different sections (although the tonality remains pretty much the same).

Its is considered by many as a rock masterpiece, from its hooky chugging bassline, to its simple but unmistakable riffs, to its catchy anthemesque chorus. The song has been chosen by many magazines and websites as a Top 10 driving song.
