TVD's Daily Wax | The Cars "Candy-O"


I was 11 and obsessed with "Let's Go." Played it over and over again. Finally, I get my hands on the LP and I'm standing in the kitchen with my dad after dinner, just having returned from Two Guys with the record. My mom's looking at the cover like, "Reallly?" with one eyebrow raised. My dad says, "Honey, it's a VARGAS." Nothing ever mentioned again.

Kudos to your dad for knowing Vargas! The Cars were the best until the era with the fly video.

The Cars always got a bad rap. Too "new wave" to be a rock band. Too mainstream to be considered punk or even "new wave", really. Meanwhile, they cranked out a few great albums and a bazillion great tunes.

I like the nightlife, baby.

Easily my favorite Cars album. I saw them on this tour too. Way cool. Cool blog, too, btw.
