Best Songs by The Cars


The Top Ten

1 Just What I Needed

Everything about this song really WORKS. I don't know why it seems so much better than some of their other stuff, but the overall effect is fantastic. - Knucklewood

This is my favorite New Wave song. - Pony

2 Drive

Their finest of the finer songs. Greatest song from the band.

I love this band I don't know why they are so underrated. They should be considered as one of the best bands and should be in the rock n roll hall of fame for sure. I love this band and I love all of their songs but this one is my favorite!

This song is so incredibly beautiful... Should be at least in the top 5.

3 You Might Think

A great upbeat song that I first heard when I was a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 1984-1986 in the Master in City Planning Program!

You think think it's a good song your right

The only thing better than this song is the music video for it. Man, is it hilarious! - Knucklewood

4 Magic

The effect of this song on you justifies the name of the song. Pure magic! It should be in the top 3 at least.

Magic is a fantastic song, it is written so well and has a fantastic blending of guitar, Ric's vocals, and synthesizer!

I love this song! How come that it's not in top ten?

Since song's really "got a hold on you"! - Knucklewood

5 Moving in Stereo

This such an amazing song. One of my favorites, along with Cruiser and This Could Be Love. The Cars is an amazing band and Ben Orr was such a great singer/guitarist. R.I.P.

6 Let's Go

Always been my favorite...dangerous type, bye bye love and your all that I've got tonight are 3 others I like a lot as well. Outside of don't cha stop, every song off of their first album was played on the radio religiously! They should be in the hall of fame.
