Another side note, this time really off-topic:
WO> The word golden has also a connotation of classic and well thought of, as in

You should probably choose a better reference example. Quite a lot of
Germans are so hideously annoyed by Volksmusikhitparaden that using
one as reference for something "classic and well thought of" might not
really serve the purpose.
