Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday – The 70’s Edition for July!
The Cars hit it especially big in the 1980’s but their first two albums were actually released in the 1970’s. I think every nerdy guy in the universe had Ric Ocasek as their hero when he married Paulina Porizkova in 1989. It’s amazing to think that they are still married today!
Los Angeles radio loves The Cars so I’ve been hearing a lot of their music lately. It’s distinctive but in my mind still holds up nicely. Today’s tune is “Just What I Needed” and the clip is from The Midnight Special television show from 1978. Benjamin Orr looks so stoned – check it out for yourself!
Did you know that Ric Ocasek has produced albums for No Doubt, Nada Surf and three albums with Weezer?
