Shake It Up by The Cars
Released: Nov 1981
Label: Elektra Records
The title track was a big hit and remained a party staple for most of the 1980s but it's the follow-up single "Since You're Gone" which remains one of The Cars' all-time best. Both cuts, and the oddly unsettling "A Dream Away," were FM rock staples and prove how deftly Ric Ocasek was at bringing underground sounds to the mainstream.
