TWILIGHT ZONE - 1982
By Golden Earring
from the album, Cut

Golden Earring official website

Directed by:
Dick Maas

I think the song is called When the Bullet hits the Bone?

What is that video with the bad guy or spy guy? Maybe he's a hitman? Three guys are chasing him. A naked gal pulls a gun on him. He's being chased by a car? Three dancing girls give him an injection? Hallucinations? He's blindfolded at the end, execution style?

The Shaft aka DOWN
DOWN aka THE SHAFT

This is the video you're probably thinking of: Dutch rock band, Golden Earring's Twilight Zone, directed by Dick Maas (THE LIFT, DOWN, THE SHAFT).

This is one of the greatest music videos of all time and for good reason. Cinematic, sharp editing, a solid story and - amazingly - characters and visuals that make sense to both the song and the video. When the video transitions from its own "reality" to the main protagonist's hallucination, we are right there and never lost for a second. And the entire thing takes place within the song: no prologue or epilogue required. Video creator, Dick Maas proved his genius with the short film in a way he's never been able to recreate in a feature film.

In the last 30 plus years, few music video directors are capable of achieving such brilliance and fewer still even try.

TWILIGHT ZONE
Somewhere in a lonely hotel room
There's a guy starting to realize that eternal
Fate has turned its back on him.
It's two a.m.

It's two a.m.
The fear has gone (the fear is gone)
I'm sitting her waitin' (somewhere waitin')
The gun's still warm (the gun's still warm)
Maybe my connection is tired of taking chances

Yeah there's a storm on the loose
Sirens in my head
Wrapped up in silence
All circuits are dead
Cannot decode my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved
Under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral
Destination unknown
Double crossed messenger, all alone
Can't get no connection
Can't get through where are you
Well the night weighs heavy
On his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
When the hit-man comes
He knows damn well
He has been cheated
And he says

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved
Under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved
Under moon and star
Where am I to go
Now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know
When the bullet hits the boneWhen the bullet hits the bone, a ha
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone, a ha
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone, a ha
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone, a ha
When the bullet hits the bone
