Best Gary Numan Songs

The Top Ten

1 Cars

Excellent audio every time I hear it. My ears love me for putting it on.

"Cars" is a 1979 song by UK artist Gary Numan, and was released as a single from the album The Pleasure Principle. It reached the top of the charts in several countries, and today is considered a New Wave staple. In the UK charts, it reached number 1 in 1979, and in 1980 hit number 1 in Canada two weeks running on the RPM national singles chart[1][2] and rose to number 9 on the U.S. billboard Hot 100. It debuted on the American Top 40 on 29 March 1980, and spent a total of 17 weeks in the AT40. "Cars" was released under the 'Atco' label, with the catalog number of 7211.

My personal favourite after Are Friends Electric. I particularly love that line, "we are not lovers, we are not romantics, we are here to serve you - a different face but the words never change" ❤
