C is for the Cars ~ #AtoZChallenge

Ah yes!!! I got another good one for my 80s babies.  Two reasons:

#1 This song “Moving in Stereo” by the Cars was on the soundtrack to “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” … a pivotal movie that influenced the last of my teenage years.  Mature subject matter that would be treated very differently if aired for the first time today.

#2 The Max a local cover band used to play lots of tunes by the Cars.  My friends and I would follow them around to local events like La Semana Alegre during Fiesta.  Bring La Semana Alegre back!!!  The one Fiesta event that had music as a central theme.  Gone the way of the dinosaurs.  A sad side note.  The Max’s lead singer and Grammy winning producer was jailed a term of two years for extortion.  The incident occurred during his brother’s political campaign.  My how things stay the same.

Now to the good stuff.  And you’re welcome. Lol 🙂

As always, more to come.

  1. Thanks Jill! Just “discovered” the Cars a few years ago when on a road trip to Reno with the hubs. He was in charge of the tunes and had a Cars CD. I didn’t know what I was missing 🙂
