Golden Earring heralds Hillary Clinton
Tuesday 29 January 2008
Dutch band Golden Earring's 1984 hit When The Lady Smiles is being used by Hillary Clinton's campaign team, the band's management confirmed on Monday evening. The song is played when Clinton enters a venue.
The band only found out when fans in America contacted them. 'There's been no contact between Clinton's team and us,' their manager told news agency ANP. 'But no doubt we'll receive royalties.'
Hillary's husband Bill reportedly used Golden Earring's global hit Radar Love in his 1992 campaign. 'There must be a fan in the Clinton entourage,' the manager said..
