I loved this back in the day, and I love it every bit as much now!~
I love Gary Numan!!!!!!! It's sooooo epic!!!!!!!!
Single version could easily be around two minutes.
This song was, is and will be 100 years ahead of its time! Plush, futuristic blended with robotic voice of Gary!

Good call on the Nip/Tuck reference lol. This is a fantastic song that does sound like a whip, but I know it's a synthesizer and high hat. ;P

This song was in the 2011 muppets movie.
This song came out when I was about 13. I loved it then, and I love it now. This song also pre-dates the 80's, but it is a New Wave anthem.
I've always loved this song!! ❌❤❌❤

Funny cool song! The album cover is goofy and makes me laugh! :)
One of the definitive songs of the era. Captures the weirdness of the eighties perfectly.

One of my most favorite tunes ever! Great album, too - very ahead of its time, still sounds fresh.
Cars is a cool retro sound that still sounds very retro cool. A lot less s**t to worry about back then. Give me some mushrooms okay and put that tune back on.
Who knew 30 years later, we would be living in our cars due to the economy.
I love this song...heard it a billion times never loses it greatness!!! !
this song will never die
one of the very very best songs of the 80's. NEVER tire of it !!

Wrong it's not Gary Numan that wrote "you got a friend in me" it's The One that sang Short People during the 70's which his Last Name is spelled Newman
@Jet Jaguar: LOL

This song is the jam!
And then he went on to write "You Got A Friend In Me" for Toy Story.
