K ronomyth 4.2: ITSEDATE. The second single from Shake It Up is a perfectly conceived post-breakup song that uses detachment to convey the pain of loss. It’s a very cool idea, kind of a carryover from Bowie’s Berlin phase, and similar to the earlier “You Wear Those Eyes.” In fact, Eyes and Gone are probably my two favorite songs from The Cars, since they get under my skin where the brighter stuff bounces off me. In a move that happened more often than not, the B side is sung by the band’s other lead singer, Orr. “Think It Over” isn’t one of Ocasek’s stronger songs, though, and Shake It Up (despite stellar production from Roy T. Baker) suggested the formula was weakening with every use. Neither side differs from its album counterpart, and the sleeve artwork is identical to the elpee, so no point in adding this to your collection, unless you plan on building a discographical website, in which case I’m sure you can do a sight better than me.
