Occasional Forgotten Video- Ric Ocasek "Something To Grab For"

In the early eighties, The Cars' frontman Ric Ocasek took a break from singing about lonliness, alienation and heartbreak with the Cars to sing about, well, um, lonliness, alienation and heartbreak on his solo album Beatitude. And of course, all the Cars played on the record. I love this song, which is as good as anything he did with the Cars.

Really, JY? For me, Ocasek taking over the Cars is not quite as bad as Michael McDonald taking over the Doobie Bros., but it's pretty close.

I used to love Ric AND the Cars. Thanks for reminding me that I like this song and that I'm old. Sigh.
