The Cars - Let's Go (live, 1979)

I never watched much of the Midnight Special while it was on, since mostly I was watching late night monster movies. I saw it a few times, usually at the end of the show, but none of the bands ever interested me. Still, I know KISS was on a few times, and many others I'm sure I would have liked to have seen, even back then.

Such as this one- I found out about the Cars around the time this song hit, and I was then into the New Wave of music. I lost interest in most- but not all- of the AOR stuff that had been getting played for years. This just sounded so new and fresh! You can tell the band was moving into a different look as well, though I think Ocasek still has the same haircut...
