| Only in it for the song
Gary Numan's massive #1 hit "Cars" was something out of this world with its unusual sound carried by heavy synthesizers, powerful drum beat and Numan's peculiar voice chanting a simply lyric that seems to reveal plenty of things. It takes you to somewhere. The video clip is half way there. Numan's careless persona is out of this world, somber yet confident enough to make some dance moves.

I'm not hard on this clip due to the magnificent song, one of my favorite and also because the video was made pre-MTV, so the makers of it couldn't get an interesting concept and it was way before the spectacular creations that came in the years to come. Numan and band performing the song, images carried with corny kaleidoscope-like effects and superimposed images is just silly nowadays. Sure, it got it fair share of views back in the day, heavy airplay but now it's just humorlessly strange. Works as curiosity. 7/10
