@hingehead,
I remember early Cars, and how they bent punk back to power pop through New Wave. Probably the first track I ever heard was Just What I Needed. I was pretty much over them after Let's Go - but Drive was an interesting diversion.

Their 2011 album was surprisingly good https://www.discogs.com/The-Cars-Move-Like-This/master/335067

@hingehead,
I enjoyed his quirky music, and sorry to hear of his death.

This one is sung by Ben Orr (as were a lot of their hits), who is also gone.

Bye bye, love.
