Supreme YouTube Banter! Candy-O Style!

I say often that I was sick and tired of 1970’s longhairs and their guitars…but then came synths, hungry starving bands on Welfare, and inno-FREAKING-vation.? 80’s New Wave and alternative appealed to something I had no name for, but which I now recognize is my cold, cold silicon heart.

The Cars combined New Wave cool with “spirit of AM radio” accessibility.


Since we are reminiscing: I had just started high-school and got invited to a party by some seniors.They played this record ALL night long. I got to drink, I got to make out with a HOT older chick, and I got to “smoke”. I thought to myself “wow, the Cars rock!”. Next morning as I was barfing out all my internal organs into the toilet, I remember thinking.

A) Beer tastes terrible coming out.

B) That chick was actually fugly as hell

C) That might have been oregano.

D) The Cars STILL rock!

    There wasn’t anything like them (American commercial New Wave). And, frankly, I feel less embarrassed rocking out to one of their songs to many other bands of the 80’s. And Ric Ocasek stuck to his roots and married a Czech!
