This tune from The Cars‘ debut album was never released as a single, but ended up getting nearly as much airplay as the singles. I’d already finished the track with a synth bass, but it felt like it needed a little more human feel, so my bud Tommy Dolan came in and laid down Ben Orr’s track.

I didn’t have a synth that could do the ‘filter sweep’ that starts the song, so I found a web site where you could generate a sweep and save it as an audio file. Like always, you do what you gotta do to get the track done around here.
