Watch: The Cars Perform ‘Heartbeat City’ @ Live Aid 1985
Here’s a favorite Cars song of mine — not as recognizable as some of their hits, although it should be. I was in Paris when Live Aid was happening, and my brother and I were watching a rabbit-ear antenna’d static-prone TV set in a hotel — unable to understand the French dialogue between the songs, but nonetheless ecstatic to watch some of our favorite groups perform.
The quality of this video is damned good. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this song, I think you’re really going to like it.
