I got exposed to way to many Car's songs in the 80s. This is one of the few that get a thumbs up. Now go move like a quirky jerk.

I met all the members back stage after a concert in the late 80's. They made everyone sit at tables while they went around and said hello. They were very arrogant. I took that with a grain of salt, though. Love the first 2 lp's the best.

1981 by my calculations . This song defines what the 80s were all about. Not that a lot of others weren't up there with it. A lot of people don't like The Cars but they are a fun band to listen or dance to.

I still love the Cars catalog. There is so much fun and energy in RO's tunes. Ocasek is the King of New Wave forever. He nailed the times perfectly. Textbook classics Ric Baby - Shake it up Brother. Welcome back to touring this year!
