  1. “Summer! It turns me upside down. SUMMER! It’s like a merry-go-round!” Every time i hear the word “summer”, I’ll always think of the song Magic by The Cars. My summer of 2017 was fueled by their greatest hit compilation. I listened to that thing on cassette 24/7 (this was back before my Walkman broke). Sadly, I never really listened to any of their actual albums and I still haven’t. I do have that greatest hit collection on CD nowadays, though. I ought to listen to that for a nostalgia trip soon.

      I would have to go with Ric, as most if not all of those songs on that cassette featured him on lead vocals. He had such a distinct voice.

      I almost picked up a Cars album once a few years ago at the record store, but decided against it for whatever reason. I’ll have to borrow some from the library or something and listen to more of their stuff sometime.

      Interesting.  When I (and they) were young, I preferred Ric too.  But as I aged, Benjamin Orr is my favorite.  I remember being so sad and shocked when he passed away too young. Let's see...just from memory:  "Just What I Needed", "It's All I Can Do".  OK, I think I know what will be on my playlist this weekend. 

      There's no right/wrong answer.  They both are great. 

      I never did see The Cars live.  Maybe they were part of one of the big "Live Aid" shows?  But that was on TV, so doesn't count.  I'm glad you brought this up, as it's good to remember.

      If your library has some, you should.  These guys were one of the great bands that pulled New Wave music more into the mainstream.
