"The Cars" -Live Aid 1985

Recommended Posts

Being from Boston I watched this band go from having their Demo songs on WBCN to world wide success in a matter of months. This performance of "Just what I needed" was a complete mind blower for me as I thought the cars were traveling in the wrong direction with Heartbeat city. Sure it was a commercial success but not like their early albums which had strong Punk and Rock influences.

Their first 2 songs at live aid (You might think and Drive) were a Yawn. But when I watched the performance of "Just what I needed" I was floored. And it still holds up till this day.

Always liked that song, used to be one of my 'getting ready to go out' tunes.

Always liked the Cars, especially their oldest material.

That whole 1st album was just great. Every member just seemed to separate themselves with their own distinct sound. Especially one of my favorite guitarists, Elliot Easton.

The first album was definitely my favorite. I wore that album out. Candy-O and the newer ones were okay, but didn't hold a candle to the debut album IMO.
