1. an American new wave
band that existed from 1976 to 1988. They made great music that drew in classic rock
fans. They made innovative award-winning video
s and were the kind of band that no one was a fanatic of, yet no one hated (except maybe your mother). Their image and lyrics were primarily about girls, cars, girls, nights on the town, girls, rock'n'roll and girls. Great fun.
2. a killer computer-animated movie released in 2006 that features the voice of Owen Wilson
portraying the protagonist carLightning McQueen
. Not rip-roaring funny but if you look hard enough, the humor is there (especially in the various scattered pop culture
references). OK, the plot does bog down a little bit in the middle of the story, and there are one or two wussy pop
songs, too but Cars is a very enjoyable movie for all ages. It is IMHO
probably the movie that matters the most this year. Slip in the DVD
and watch it. You will be thrilled.
1. the best Cars albums include "Candy - O", "Heartbeat City", "Panarama" and "Anthology - Just What I Needed".
2. the movie Cars has a terrific soundtrack featuring cool songs by Sheryl Crow
, Rascall Flats
(a stunningly faithful cover of Tom Cochran
's 1992 hit "Life is a Highway"),Chuck Berry
and more. Very entertaining.
