EDITORS’ NOTES

The Cars’ classic ‘70s and ‘80s run captures a band carrying rock ‘n’ roll into the future without ever losing sight of the past. Their debut single, 1978’s “Just What I Needed,” is a shot across punk’s bow, wedding power pop’s punch to hard-rock choruses, while “My Best Friend’s Girl,” from the same year, is full of ‘50s twang. By 1981’s “Shake It Up,” peppy New Wave keyboards have stormed the sock hop, and 1984’s “Drive” is a synth-pop power ballad par excellence.

Sometimes there’s a song or scent that catapults me back in time. This collection absolutely succeeded in doing so. I was raised on this genre of music (WMMR Preston & Steve Philly PA shoutout!!!) & hands down The Cars have always been in my top five.
Plus: I’m awful with names of songs. It was amazing to sample the album and realize not only do know all the songs but I actually remember all the lyrics as well. I love love love it woohoo!
