Originating in Boston (in 1976), The Cars were a quartet of pretty hip dudes who emerged onto the "New Wave" pop scene at the end of the 1970s.

With their distinctive synth-pop sound (which was generously punctuated by lotsa catchy lyrics and up-tempo rhythms), The Cars scored a string of #1 hits that received plenty of heavy airplay throughout the 1980s.

The clean, no-nonsense sound of The Cars' unique music style can be directly credited to their lead guitarist/vocalist, Ric Ocasek, who single-handedly wrote almost all of the band's songs, himself.

This "Greatest Hits" CD contains 13, finger-snapping tracks from The Cars' 5 studio albums which were released between 1978-1984. Three of my very favourite tunes from this compilation are - Drive, Shake It Up, and You Might Think.... (*Watch "I Can't Wait" music-video*)

*Trivia Note* - Ric Ocasek's father was a computer analyst for NASA.
