I invite you all to close your eyes and reacquaint yourself with THE ENTIRE three minutes and 50 seconds of this song.

It's a fun song to play on guitar. :shrug:

Also, paging Numanoid!

I want to say 'doesn't suck' but I couldn't make it through the whole thing. It's definitely not a song you'll confuse the decade it's from. :lol:

This version doesn't suck IMO (featuring Numan):

This is one of my least favorite songs of all time.

I'm sure there's somebody here who can point us to better singles in Numan's library. But who?

I hear no suckage, only a classic tune.

One of the few synth pop songs from the 80s I still enjoy.

Docked one point for being responsible for the crap that it influenced.

Why is this even a poll?

Of course it sucks.

I like a lot of Numan songs, although I prefer the updated darker versions he plays live now.

This is one of my favorite versions!

So... nothing says the '70s like Cars???

... or maybe you are confused. :lol:

I voted "it sucks" mainly because new wave really isn't my thing. It's not poorly produced, or written, or performed or anything, I just don't like it much. Personal taste.

Good song, didn't vote because I'm not playing your little game!

I hated it at the time, but compared to 99% of the awful group-written repetitive-beat dross that's out there now it sounds great. :)

I don't know if I'd say "better" but I also like these among many more:

I think the reason you're implying it's monotonous is because the vocals end pretty early into the track. I always liked the song and could listen to it still without feeling bored. The drumming by Sharpley is superb. That's one of the things that always stood out to me about Numan's early work. He always had top musicians and lavish stage shows.

It's a great song.

:lol: at the idea of someone complaining that a pop song is too repetitive.
