The Cars Greatest Hits

The Cars were responsible for some of rock’s most recognizable radio hits by the mid-’80s, so when the band took an extended break after their successful tour for Heartbeat City, 1985’s Greatest Hits was assembled. Mixed in with the familiar selections was a brand-new track, the playful “Tonight She Comes” (which became a Top Ten hit), as well as a remix of the overlooked “Shake It Up” ballad “I’m Not the One.” And while most of the expected hits are represented (“Just What I Needed,” “Let’s Go,” “Drive,” “Shake It Up,” etc.), some of the selections prove questionable — why was the title track from Heartbeat City (an unsuccessful single) included instead of the 1984 Top 20 hit “Hello Again”? Other missing radio staples include “You’re All I’ve Got Tonight,” “It’s All I Can Do,” and the title track from Candy-O, which would have made the collection definitive (all are included on the more extensive Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology from 1995). But for the casual fan, Greatest Hits will do the trick.

Heartbeat City The Cars 1 $9.49 Heartbeat City is the fifth studio album by American rock band the Cars. Released in 1984, it was produced by Robert John “Mutt” Lange. Picking up a positive commercial response, the Cars had many tracks getting airplay, and singles “Drive” and “You Might Think” in particular both became Top 10 hits. The album also received supportive reviews from several critics; for example, Robert Christgau stated that “the glossy approach the Cars invented has made this the best year for pure pop in damn near twenty, and it's only fair that they should return so confidently to form.”

1 ‘Just What I Needed’ From: ‘The Cars’ On a near-perfect debut album, the Roy Thomas Baker-produced ‘Just What I Needed’ was a near-perfect song. The Cars’ entry on the Top 100 Classic Rock Songs list succeeds because of its tension — do the lyrics express love or disdain for a beauty? — as well as for its minimalist guitar, clipped rhythms and the indelible siren-like keyboard melody. Fresh enough for new wavers, but traditional enough for classic rockers, ‘Just What I Needed’ hits the (sweet) spot.

Shake It Up The Cars 1 $9.49 Shake It Up is the fourth studio album by American rock band The Cars, released in 1981. It was the last album by the Cars to be produced by Roy Thomas Baker. A much more pop-oriented album than its predecessor, its title track became their first Billboard top ten hit.

10 ‘Bye Bye Love’ From: ‘The Cars’ One of the many great Ric Ocasek-penned, Ben Orr-sung tunes in the Cars’ catalog (heck, on the Cars’ debut LP), ‘Bye Bye Love’ is more abstract than direct. Ostensibly about chances for romance being dashed, the midtempo AOR cruiser boasts more than a few cryptic momenets. For starters, right before the chorus Orr either sings “It’s just a broken lullaby” or “It’s just a broken alibi”; his voice is obscured enough that either word fits. The effect adds mystery—and yet another layer of depth to the band’s already-sterling debut.

Although it’s tempting to consider the Cars‘ top songs just their entire 1978 debut and call it a day, the Boston quintet had more to offer than nervy post-punk/classic rock hybrids. As their career progressed, the band dabbled in moody new wave and sophisticated synthpop, becoming MTV staples and an arena-sized draw. But perhaps not given as much credence is vocalist/guitarist Ric Ocasek’s songwriting. The shades-wearing singer is a master at understated desolation and subtle bitterness — so subtle, in fact, that only close lyrical readings reveal them. In honor of his talents, here are the top 10 Cars songs.

Unrequited teenage lust has never sounded as good as it does on ‘Let’s Go.’ The lead-off track on the Cars’ sophomore effort boasts jaunty keyboard high-stepping in lockstep with Ben Orr’s bass, as well as handclaps and easygoing guitars. The song’s object of affection, meanwhile, is a wild child who knows she’s able to manipulate anyone because of her beauty: “She says, let’s go / She’s laughing inside ’cause they can’t refuse.” And as with many early Cars songs, there’s more than a faint trace of bitterness and wistfulness in these lyrics.

The Cars were always more diverse than people gave them credit for. Exhibit A: ‘All Mixed Up,’ the final song on their debut LP. Prog-like keyboards burble and skip merrily underneath Ben Orr’s pastoral vocal delivery and layers of post-punk and garage-psych guitar. Unsurprisingly, disorientation and confusion dominate the lyrics; still, the song’s intricate details — from Queen-like gang harmonies to a bittersweet Greg Hawkes sax solo—are what elevate it high in the Cars’ song canon.
