13. The Cars - Just What I Needed

Found on: The Cars (1978)
Picked by: PA, WA, JG, RN

The Cars took a little bit of a '70s hard rock sensibility, some New Wave cool (especially in Ben Orr's detached vocals), the harmonies and production quality of a '60s pop group, and mixed it all together into a completely unique concoction. Just What I Needed is a perfect example of their appeal to both audiophiles and casual listeners.
