Weekly Album: “Complete Greatest Hits” by The Cars

Greatest Hits by The Cars
I’m usually not one for greatest hits compilations, but do, in this instance, having all my favorite The Cars songs in one place (this applies to Journey, as well). Every song is pop perfection (back before “pop” was such a dirty word). Oh, do I love The Cars! This is one of those bands that we refer to as a “family band,” meaning that I, my mother, father, and two brothers enjoy.

Blondie may have had a string of number one hits and Talking Heads may have won the hearts of the critics, but the Cars were the most successful American new wave band to emerge in the late ’70s. With their sleek, mechanical pop/rock, the band racked up a string of platinum albums and Top 40 singles that made them one of the most popular American rock & roll bands of the late ’70s and early ’80s.
