USA, 1978, new wave / pop rock / power pop
The Cars – The Cars: I dig this so much…in spots. No one swallows his histrionics the way Ric Ocasek does. To me, this music is all the updated swing and swagger of 50s rock for the contemporary new wave crowd. This must be one of the earliest examples of power pop, and it’s all just so pure. Yep. “Moving in Stereo” would be the perfect song to strip to.
