30 November 2022 - The Cars - Drive

I know.

We've been deficient on posting.

We're going to get better, I promise.

For now, let's feature the 1984 Cars hit song, sung by bassist Benjamin Orr and written by Ric Ocasek.  The video was produced by Timothy Hutton (the actor) and features supermodel Paulina Porizkova, who would later become Ocasek's wife.

Orr sang the song beautifully, giving a heartfelt and moving rendition of the tune.  He was clearly the right choice, and the American public agreed, as this became a rather big hit for the band.

Perhaps the song is best known for its Live Aid performance - which is spectacular.
