The Cars

For all my blues, roots, and metal leanings one mainstream band I have always loved was The Cars.

They produced massive pop hits including ‘Just What I Needed’, ‘You Might Think’, ‘Moving In Stereo’, and the devastating track ‘Drive’

When, after decades, they released a new album in 2011, it was an instant purchase, and felt immediately familiar.

Ric Ocasek will be remembered for infectious beats, crystalline production, for marrying very well, and for being completely underrated for the penetrative insight in his lyrics.
