Back in the day ...I fell in love with Ben Orr from The Cars.
In my humble opinion, he was a much better front man than Ric Ocasek.
AND he was pretty damn good on the bass.
Sadly, pancreatic cancer took this beautiful man 10 years ago.

In remembrance of Ben, and my youth, I give you two from 1979's Candy-O.

Ahhh .... such memories!

That album was WITHOUT QUESTION, their best effort, and it remains in my personal collection.

Heff: In total agreement with you on this!
My poor Candy-O cd is thankful for my damn ipod!

Oh, this takes me back. I loved this album. It reminds me of my Freshman year in college. *sigh*
