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.

A good one actually the oldies are coming back!
The best cars guitar solo in my opinion.
Car's are cool

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.

Most fun to dance to.
Lets go rollerskatit i n g at the rollerskatin g rink!
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!
old school.
