28) "The Mid-Morning Recording"         The Cars-'Candy-O'
Orly asked during the broadcast if I had seen The Cars live, and sadly my answer was a 'no'. They did play in San Antonio it turns out in 1984. I was almost a teenager, but I think with the invention of MTV, I don't remember seeing too many concerts from 1982 to 1987. I guess it was also getting more and more expensive to see a show during that time, so my parents were going out less. That and also with the invention of MTV, my tastes were starting to change. I most likely was a snob of The Cars with the release of "Heartbreak City". It was everywhere at the time. So I guess I decided that they weren't worth the ticket price in 1984. Foolish. I guess another reason why I didn't see The Cars in 1984 was because past the first album, I didn't really hear any album tracks from other albums until the 90's. Even then, I tended to gravitate towards the singles. --- Recently, I've been listening to a lot The Cars discography, past the first album, and past the singles, and even the last album they created "Move Like This" from 2011. They were an incredible band, start to finish, and it's so sad that we've lost both Orr and Ocasek now. Two guys who really knew how to write a hook, in the verse, chorus, and the bridge. The songs they made have hooks everywhere, and those are helped along by Greg Hawkes' stellar keyboard riffs, David Robinson's steady beat, and an incredible guitar and harmony by Elliot Easton. Certainly one of the best American new wave bands for sure. A little slicker than the punk edged bands of the day, and a little more out in space than the UK new wave bands of the day. So here's to their second album, "Candy-O". The follow up to one of the most critically acclaimed debut albums from any band. A worthy follow-up that gave them higher chart success, but not as many hits. I really like "Candy-O" because one can already hear their sound start to mature. It's nice to discover in my older age that the band was trying to better their craft instead of trying to just repeat the first album. While I don't think it's as good as their first album, it shows the band experimenting more, which now I appreciate more. "It's All I Can Do" was released as a single, but didn't chart very high. One can hear a direct link from a song like "Just What I Needed" from the first album, to Orr's mega-hit "Drive" in that single. Their popularity certainly peaked with "Heartbeat City", which maybe even the band would admit to be their most "crafted' album. It certainly sold the most, but it also had MTV, and that visual element their first three albums didn't have. Even with "Shake It Up", MTV was so new to the scene, and experimental on its own. It's bizarre to me that we haven't played more albums from The Cars as a MMR. I'm sure we'll play another pretty soon. "I like the night life baby!" - Michael - MFL
