You believe in anything
They tell you how to think
Simpletons a circling
The raging roller rink

Trading in the alley
Bucking up a storm
Forget about reality
Cause nothing is the norm
Yeah yeah

So what can you do
You say
They owe me a few yeah
Blue tip me a cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave without a trace

Sanctuary your heartland
Black and white tv
Stroking all the gun heads
To the ninth degree

You here the screamers coming
They clamor in disguise
They think that you'll be running
To the other side
Yeah yeah

So what can you do
You say
They owe me a few yeah
Blue tip me a cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
Can't fill an empty space

(Ahh)
You stupify the thinkers
(Ahh)
You're hugging all the flakes
(Ahh)
And all the things you think are true
(Ahh)
Only mystify the fakes

Keep your hat on backwards
And keep your lips tucked in
The world is full of quackers
And belly button rings

I know you'd like to be immune
To the things they say
You're hung up on your heroes
And upon the beast you pray
Yeah hey

What can you do
You say
Well they owe me a few yeah
Blue (blue) tip me a cue yeah

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave without a trace

You got that look on your face
You'd like to be in the race
You cannot hide your disgrace
You leave a bitter taste

That makes two of us, and I'm really impressed with how 80s they made this sound in 2011....8 off the bat and LLRP for playing new Cars!!

Two in a row from the Cars!  I'm cool with an all-day tribute 

RIP Ric
Rik & Benj are rocking out there in the cosmos.  xoxoxo

Trying to visualise a duck with a belly button ring, especially since they don't have inies or outies either for that matter. 
I sense a theme I this playlist...

if this was on the first record or second record it would probably have been pretty good. problem is time moves but apparently the cars haven't figured that out.

I almost laughed out-loud...inappropriate in my current environment

yawn
Can't wait for the new albums from Billy Joel and Haircut 100!!

I'm sure they figured if LCD Soundsystem was making money off of stuff that sounds like old Cars songs, then it was time for a new album.
This song brings back SO many memories. Back around 1980 when The Cars were huge, I used to gas up Ric's cars, he had a Mercedes 300TD wagon and a black Jaguar XJ6. The Jag would take a pint of power steering fluid every time you gassed it up, they just couldn't make that car stop leaking PS fluid.

Ah, good times!

True story. 
With headphones...crank it!  YEAH!
amazing how good they sound after so long.

Nice. this sounds more like the Cars that I know and love.

God, it's so fun hearing that distinctive Cars buzz, hum, and thrum again...and the Ocasek vocals are as quirky as ever; the words even more biting and downright political than ever...and perhaps no one knows their way around the fret-board like Easton — JAM!
 

nice summation.

Nice to hear The Cars again!
The Cars are the Cars. I don't think they are capable of doing anything too different, that is fine. They are just not the type of band that can reinvent the wheel, I am sure people will still buy this based on nostalgia. Some people may enjoy it, most will probably say meh. Our money is still good, they will be able to cash some checks, good for them.
Sure this sounds like their old stuff.... but ain't nuthin' wrong with that!  {#Dancingbanana}

"Just the tip baby," Is what a guy I knew from Brooklyn used to say to girls he was hooking up with. No word on how many babies have been born in Bay Ridge with green eyes and a weak chin.
 
Heehee! You hear about the moyel who worked for free? Yeah, he only took tips.

Oh, YIPPEE!!!! {#Dancingbanana} I don't think they sound the same as they did years ago - lots of edgier guitar and meatier bass lines.  I ordered this CD a couple of days ago, and I can't wait to hear the whole thing! 

Did I mention YIPPEE?  

Bags are packed. I'm heading to Vegas for hotel room dancing with Romeo.{#Dancingbanana_2}

You could probably say that about a lot of bands!

{#Bananajam}Fun, Fun, Fun!
I knew this was the Cars within the first three seconds I first heard this number.
This car is running on retreads

I hate it when a band sounds like themselves.  

Glad to see some other songs from this cool new release are making it into play on RP.  I admire Ric immensely for his wily wit and mighty chops in biting into politics with such slick and sly verve on it, too!  GO CARS!

oh when you bite your lip

It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove...



This sounds like a classic, but it is an awesome new song by The Cars!  Love it!  Everybody in my hotel room be dancing!

Nice and happy. They still work for me.

{#Dance}

Yeah this one's better than the other stuff I've heard so far...
Now, that just has to be an old Casio at the start. I wonder if Rolf Harris is moonlighting for these guys? ;)
Like the old Cars!!!
Way to go Bill, one of the better songs on this CD!
