I know Eddie Money is not a "typical" RP artist, but how about a one time rendition of 2 tickets to Paradise in honour of Ric Ocasek and Eddie

I have a photo somewhere, beautiful Southern California afternoon sky, fluffy clouds, Ric Ocasek on the jumbotron and the Blue Angels doing a flyover that looks like it's coming out of the screen. 19-year-old me might have cried just then.

Yep. At one time I had at least one solo LP from 4 out of 5. The Greg Hawkes record was pretty far out there, experimental synth stuff. Ben's record was tame but with the Cars you can see he was a huge part of their success. Elliot's Change No Change was very good, and there's a solo Elliot track here at RP, not from that album tho it's on later releases so maybe I'll go get that. Drummer David Robinson was with Jonathan Richman in the early days.
 
Who always reminded me of Ocasek.  Strange synchronicity.  Candy O always made my booty shake.

I never had the opportunity to see The Cars but man that gift Ric had was rich with
artistry. The whole band in fact. He and Ben meeting was meant to be for the music...

On Touch & Go, the quirky-rhythm single that, when I was in charge of music in the car, I'd say "here's a country song" and when it got to that point in the song all my friends would throw stuff at me and shout, "that's not country!" but anyway I got them to listen. Years later, a friend who's a good drummer decided his band should take on "Touch & Go" but after a few months of trying to nail it, they just gave up. It's a lot tougher than it sounds, apparently.

 
That is a challenging song to play; it's a polyrhythm.  In the verses the rhythm section is playing in 5/4, the vocals and other instruments are in 4/4 time.

 

Indeed. I always thought of corn popping.

NEW YORK— Ric Ocasek, famed frontman for The Cars rock band, has been found dead in a Manhattan apartment.

The New York City Police Department said officers responding to a 911 call found the 75-year-old Mr. Ocasek at about 4 p.m. on Sunday. They said there was no sign of foul play and that the medical examiner was to determine a cause of death.

The Cars’ chart-topping hits in the late 1970s and 1980s included “Just What I Needed,” ‘‘Shake It Up” and “Drive.” The band was inducted last year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In May of 2018, model and actress Paulina Porizkova announced on social media that she and Mr. Ocasek had separated after 28 years of marriage. The pair first met while filming the music video for “Drive.”

 
Sad. I still love The Cars' music.
