Suicide

Where their first album was downright scary, Suicide’s sophomore was disarmingly melodic. Much of the reason was the influence of Ric Ocasek. By chance, I heard ‘Double Life’ yesterday – one of my favourite tracks from The Cars’ canon. I like it for its simplicity. A year before the Second Album came out, Ocasek had already worked with Suicide on the classic single ‘Dream Baby Dream’. Alan Vega’s voice suddenly sounded appropriate.
