First of all, I don't really care about this song. I mean, it's okay I guess, it's about robots or something. A little proggy for my taste, with the keyboards and the pyramids. Plus, it's fucking Gary Numan, the "Cars" guy, a person whose entire career now consists of having Joel Stein make painfully unfunny comments about him on those VH1 countdown shows (there was one on the other night, which is why I was thinking about this in the first place.)
No, I posted this for two reasons. One is, the popup video for "Cars" had one popup where it said something like "Gary's current hobbies include flying his airplane and right-wing politics" which I still think is pretty damn funny. And two, there was the one character in Maniac Mansion who was supposed to be a New Wave artist and whose look was obviously based on Gary Numan and his band.
Besides, not everything on here has to be great - we should explore the vast, rotted underbelly of the music business too (you should have seen the first song I had planned, consider yourselves lucky.)
