Great song and my own personal favourite of theirs.However Ric didn't sing that one, that was Benjamin Orr who also wrote many of their hits.He died quite young of cancer, almost 20 years ago.

The cars were a middle of the road soft rock band, during the eighties we were spoilt for choice with some fine bands such as journey doing pretty much the same stuff ,having said that they did write some great tunes that still sound good today.

 The Cars were a major force in North American pop music in the 80s, inducted into the Rock n Roll hall of fame last year: 

 

One of the best parody songs ever.

Yes British bands ruled the 80s .The major American bands such as The Eagles , Doors, CCR and Beach Boys were pretty much done and we had to put up a lot of banal stuff from the likes of Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Journey, Van Halen,Platinum Blonde, Glass Tiger and these guys. Thank goodness Springsteen and Billy Joel were on top form then.
