35. Ric Ocasek 1944-2019

Ric Ocasek of the band The Cars merged new wave guitars and synthesiser to brilliant effect.  
Rythm guitarist and songwriter for the band he created songs of love and yearning.
Having 3 wives with two sons each – he must have had lots of life love experience to draw on.

He wrote the tunes and the words. His voice was simple and clear: good for radio. Car stereos loved him. He captured something of romance and pain. As a result Luck, and Chance played out in his words. All to the beat of driving and moving on.

“Let’s Go”
She’s driving away
With the dim lights on
And she’s making a play
She can’t go wrong

She never waits too long
She’s winding them down
On her clock machine
And she won’t give up
‘Cause she’s seventeen
She’s a frozen fire
She’s my one desire
And I don’t want to hold her down
Don’t want to break her crown

When she says”Let’s go”
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says “Let’s go”

She’s laughing inside
‘Cause they can’t refuse
She’s so beautiful now
She doesn’t wear her shoes
She never likes to choose

She’s got wonderful eyes
And a risque mouth
And when I ask her before
She said she’s holding out
She’s a frozen fire
She’s my one desire
And I don’t want to hold her down
Don’t want to break her crown

When she says “Let’s go”
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says “Let’s go”

Ooh
I like the nightlife baby
She says
I like the nightlife baby
She says “Let’s go”
