K RONOMYTH 5.01: GONE TO THE DOGS. Meet Mutt Lange, caricature artist. Think Foreigner was for rock fans? Enter 4. Think the Cars were cool? Welcome to Heartbeat City, a/k/a Toontown. The opening single, “You Might Think,” is a cartoonist’s impression of what The Cars were all about. Disembodied guitars and saccharin synthesizers, all of it packaged without a trace of human involvement. There was something desperately cool about love songs like “Let’s Go” and “Just What I Needed.” But The Cars as cute rock stars? Why even keep it going at all? Hell, The Monkees rocked harder than this. The B side for the US single is the downbeat album track. Both tracks are identical to the elpee versions.

I LIKE 2 WATCH

The video for "You Might Think" won the first MTV Music Video Award for Video of the Year. You can view it here. You can thank YouTube for the video and, I dunno, maybe you might want to send a dollar to Warner Music or something since they own the rights to it.
