Cars - Heartbeat City RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Bill Holdship

Buddy Holly-meets-Roxy Music was the hook-filled formula Ric Ocasek and crew fell into on their classic 1978 debut--and it's one they continued to milk throughout the first half of the Awesome80s. As in any formula, it seemed to dilute a bit with each subsequent release. Heartbeat City, however, saw the Cars shaking things up a bit and scoring three hit singles in the process. "You Might Think" does have that same old Cars pop sound, but "Magic" and especially "Drive" sound unlike anything the Boston band had previously recorded. The album proved to be a rebirth of well as a final hurrah. Following their Greatest Hits package, the Cars would fade away following 1987's Door to Door.
