def deserves his own thread. here's a fave of mine:

We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

They played a great set at Live Aid. Heartbeat City is a personal fave from their catalog. A really gorgeous synth driven classic.

This remix of "Hello Again" is one of the first remixes I remember hearing that weren't just an extended version. Plus it's got Bugs Bunny. I was sold.

Those early Cars albums are great. Ocasek did a lot of interesting production work, too.
