The Cars ‎- Just What I Needed (1978)

YouTubeAmazoniTunesDiscogs

I just heard about Ric Ocasek’s passing this week. Very sad news. I spent a good few months listening to The Cars’ back catalogue in the mid to late 1980s. I loved the accessible mix of new wave and rock, an experience I would revisit years later when hearing The Strokes for the first time. Did Ocasek write a better track than ‘Just What I Needed’? Maybe not. The standout was from their self-titled debut. R.I.P. Ric; you were a real creative force.
