A game-changing song and video. Following up his UK number one hit as Tubeway Army (Are ‘Friends' Electric?), Cars launched Gary Numan's solo career with another UK number one. Built around analogue synthesisers with no guitar, this was the purest form of Gary's ‘Machine Music' and the track has subsequently been sampled on numerous occasions. Promotional videos were also a rarity at the time and this one created the defining image of Gary Numan.

  1. Terrícolaaaaaas!!!!!! rindan pleitesía al Dios de los sintetizadores, al gürü de la música electronica!!! Terrícolas… liberen a Numan!! liberen a Numaaaaann!!!!!….. Firman: Los Numanoides.

  2. When Gary Numan burst on the scene in 79 hardcore Bowie fans like myself were up in arms about him totally ripping off his Berlin period. He did, and he did it beautifully!!!

  3. I still remember hearing this on the radio when it came out, pumping out of the speakers of my parents' console stereo. I would have been 8 years old, and even to my little kid ears it sounded so different from anything else then. Like the way "Smells Like Teen Spirit" ushered in a new era, "Cars" was a gauntlet thrown down that the '70s were over and we were moving into a brave new future.

    Here it is 2022 as I write this, and this song still sounds like it comes from some distant alien future.
