Thank you, Westerberg. I kind of forgot about them. I am putting it on my ipod now, to listen to at the gym later.
The Cars are great. Didn't they reform and go on tour without Okasik recently?
I don't know, but their guitar player was/is pretty damn tasty....Eliot Easton
That was the tour before, where Todd Rungren filled in for Ric Ocasek.
They were such a great band, saw 'em on one of their early tours in a small club and they were fantastic. Saw them years later in a stadium and it just wan't the same. Elliott Easton is a monster geetar player.
This song has one of the coolest classic Rockabilly influenced guitar solos ever...
There music, especially at first, was always so mechanical and cold, but the guitar work (usually) gave it some counterbalance, some organic warmth....
Is Ocasek back with them?
I just read that they released a new album in 2011 (?) and he's credited as songwriter on almost all songs.....
I always thought of it as a Jojo Richman homage. Think about it...
I'm pretty sure they also went w/o Benjamin Orr. RIP
Ben Orr is one of the most under appreciated musicians of all time
