52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 15 All Mixed Up by the Cars

she tricks me into thinking
i can’t believe my eyes
i wait for her forever
she never does arrive

The Cars self-titled album, released in 1978, was an absolute treasure.  It produced multiple hits.  It had the cult song “Moving in Stereo.”

But the overlooked track on this incredible album was All Mixed Up which came right after Moving in Stereo and featured Benjamin Orr (R.I.P.) on vocals.  I can remember visiting my brother, at Bentley College in the early 1980s – and listening to this song on an incredibly loud stereo.  And it was a good thing.


If you don’t own the Cars first album – you really need to go get it.  But at the very least get this incredible song in your library. 

she says to leave it to me
and everything will be alright
