My Best Friend’s Girl


A steadfast “80’s music” staple that has held up well. Quotation marks because, like a lot of what we lump in with 80’s New Wave, this song (and a lot of the Cars’ other hits) actually came out in the 70’s. Not that petty genre distinctions truly matter when it comes to good music. 1978 was a great year for music, all across the genre board. You can call it New Wave or Post-Punk or whatever you like, but you know exactly the sound I’m talking about, and The Cars were one of the better bands to put that sound on the radio, which is why they’re still on the radio.
