A Short Car-ride

We're focusing on The Cars today as part of our Thursday Artist Portrait. For the first time, we're featuring their fifth album, Heartbeat City, a 1984 release that bridged the gap between the band's new wave roots and the then-current MTV video rock age.

It was a massively successful effort, selling triple platinum with two Top Ten radio singles and top rated videos on MTV. It would be The Cars last major studio effort before the inevitable Greatest Hits, followed by a less successful album and finally, the breakup.

We tracked Side 1 this time; highlights included "Hello Again", "Magic" and "Drive".
