    Sad. Here's UCR's piece.

    Last time I heard Drive, it was Aimee Mann's version in a TV show (it was the best thing about the show in fact) and I remember reading how it became the perfect song for Live Aid.

    Here's the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuZA6qiJVfU

    Very hard these past few days with both Eddie Money and Rik Ocasek The Cars were a good band. debut album is awesome. My favorite songs by them were "all mixed up" "hello again". "Moving in stereo" "good times roll" "dangerous type" "drive"

    Wow - Another terrible loss. I had no idea that Ric was 75 years old. My heart goes out to his loved ones and his fans. I love Drive and even though he didn't sing lead on the song, he did write it. He was very talented.

    R.I.P. Ric Ocasek
