Sunday Sounds: The best intro ever.

garage

There is one song that in mind mind holds the “best intro ever” title. Furthermore, the song is perfect all the way through to it’s end. Lyrically it touches on the old man meets young girl relationship theme (my own take). It also has killer synth and guitar solos. You must know by now that song is: Just What I Needed by The Cars. I never owned this song until I bought it today but every single time I ever came across it on the radio or in a bar I just absolutely loved it. The intro is some sort of time trick matched with some of the best recorded guitar ever. As one guitar line changes to another it pans, pitches down, and the killer vocals start. It would have been enough to make this one great song like this but alas The Cars have many more. This song makes me dream about girls, love and showing off my machismo. What more do you want?

I don’t mind you coming here, wasting all my time
Cause when you’re standing oh so near
I kinda lose my mind
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the way you wear your hair
I don’t mind you coming here, wasting all my time

I guess you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re what I needed
I needed someone to bleed

I don’t mind you hanging out, talking in your sleep
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been
As long as it was deep
You always knew to wear it well
You look so fancy I can tell
I don’t mind you hanging out, talking in your sleep

I guess you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re what I needed
I needed someone to bleed

Yeah, yeah, yeah, so bleed me

I don’t mind you coming here, wasting all my time
Cause when you’re standing oh so near
I kinda lose my mind
It’s not the perfume that you wear
It’s not the way you wear your hair
I don’t mind you coming here, wasting all my time

I guess you’re just what I needed
I needed someone to feed
I guess you’re what I needed
I needed someone to bleed

Yeah, you’re just what I needed
Oh you’re just what I needed, yeah, yeah
You’re just what I needed

  1. What a tune! Weird that you picked this – I play this in my covers band, and there is nothing better than digging into that chorus with the guitar amp wound up full. Classic.

  2. Awww yeah! “Magic” has an amazing opening as well. As Miles Davis would say, that Mutt Lange’s “a real Motherfucker.”
