And wastin' all my time
I discovered The Cars from hearing a song of theirs in the musical muse that is Maplins Electronics Store a few months ago. I memorised the lyrics then Googled them when I got home (does anyone else do this? I do it a lot!) They seemed to kind of fit the store ambiance.
i first heard them in a pub. I instantly thought it was Talking Heads (as the voices aren't dissimilar) but my mum swiftly pointed out that it was The Cars.
i went in for some speaker wire, came out with Best Friend's Girl in my head for hours! I almost asked one of the geeks who worked there if he knew what song they was playing :D
I got the greatest hits and I have to be in the mood I think. The dancey/ angular thing is very Franz to me.
but if you're in that mood it's amazing, one of the best greatest hits going.
By the way, when i read you're first response i read it far too quick, got very confused, as i read it as you had gone to a musical based on the electronics store Maplins.
