So I’m not much into what you might consider rock n roll classics. But for some reason or another I have a soft spot for The Cars. Their first record is super good. It’s one that I really got into cause of the game Rock Band. I had the whole thing downloaded for playing in the game.
Sidenote: Rock Band was probably my favorite thing in the world from late 2007 to early 2010.
The Cars have a great mix of solid hooks, guitar riffage, and synth lines. Along with that late 70’s early 80’s kinda deadpan singing that makes them sound distant and cool.
This song is the title track from their second album Candy-O, which I listened to for the first time this week. I picked it up from Arrow’s Aim Records here in Gainesvegas and it’s been sitting on my shelf for a bit, so I figured it was time to give it a spin.
It’s a good album. Listen to it.
