In the 80's their music was "Magic."  Maybe a new release was "Just what I needed." After 24 years, The Cars are back with a new album.  I was able to get the new single "Sad Song" on my iPhone for free, thanks to the "Song of the Week" free download card at Starbucks.

My first reaction...  They sound the same, and just as good as they ever have.  My second reaction... There is a slight modern feel to the song with some newer sounding dance beats in the background.  Take a listen for yourself and let us know what you think.

"This is not a reunion — it's more like a conjunction," Cars frontman Ric Ocasek told Rolling Stone earlier this year.
