EDITORS’ NOTES

The Cars’ classic ‘70s and ‘80s run captures a band carrying rock ‘n’ roll into the future without ever losing sight of the past. Their debut single, 1978’s “Just What I Needed,” is a shot across punk’s bow, wedding power pop’s punch to hard-rock choruses, while “My Best Friend’s Girl,” from the same year, is full of ‘50s twang. By 1981’s “Shake It Up,” peppy New Wave keyboards have stormed the sock hop, and 1984’s “Drive” is a synth-pop power ballad par excellence.

Great album, great band...RIP Ric Ocasek :(

just got this album and I was surprised to be reminded of all the fabulous tunes the The Cars has - I went through my high school & young adult years jamming with The Cars. Sad day to buy such happy fun music being that the world had Ric Ocasek taken but his passing reminded me of just how he & the band’s music gave me great memories with each tune!

I listened to “The Cars” to wake up while going to work in the morning. Those guys got me in a good mood for the day. Just great music, Ric passed away the other day and he will be be missed. His positive contribution in this world and life will be celebrated whenever a Cars song is heard. R.I.P.
