I read on one of my favorite blogs, Isorski's Musings, that The Cars are in the recording studio after a 23 year break. Hmmm. I don't know how I feel about that since my favorite "Car" was Benjamin Orr so it won't be the same without him.
Can The Cars be labeled rock and roll? Its a subjective topic placing music in specific genres. But I have to say, even though rock and roll was invaded by New Wave, Pop, Arena Rock, Hair Metal and DISCO in the 80's - there sure was a lot of fun music to dance and party to!
It may taint my image as a die hard 70's rock chick to admit this, but in the 80's I also loved listening to:
Hall & Oates
The Stray Cats
Thankfully Seano doesn't read hear anymore he may disown me as a friend. I may have lost a lot of credibility admitting to a few of these - but honesty is the only way I roll. Even though its often very embarrassing.
What about you? Guilty pleasures of the 80's
