Song of the Day Mar 7

March 7, 2024


This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 80s.


Today our song is:  Cars


Wikipedia tells us this about the song:


According to Gary Numan, the song's lyrics were inspired by an incident of road rage:

I was in traffic in London once and had a problem with some people in front. They tried to beat me up and get me out of the car. I locked the doors and eventually drove up on the pavement and got away from them. It's kind of to do with that. It explains how you can feel safe inside a car in the modern world...When you're in it, your whole mentality is different...It's like your own little personal empire with four wheels on it.






Enjoy!
