Music Video of the Day: My Best Friend’s Girl by The Cars (1978, directed by ????)


On Sunday night, it was announced that Ric Ocasek, the co-lead singer and songwriter of the Cars, had died at the age of 75.  First Daniel Johnston.  Then Eddie Money.  And now Ric Ocasek.  We’ve lost some of the truly great ones this past week.

My Best Friend’s Girl is one of the many songs that Ocasek wrote and recorded as the lead singer of The Cars.  Sung from the point of view of a man whose girl has left him for his best friend, it was one of the Cars’s biggest hits and it continues to endure as one of the signature songs of the 70s and 80s.

Ric Ocasek, R.I.P.
