In 1995, Carling Premier Lager was using "Cars" as its musical backdrop for a UK TV advertising campaign, this kicking off a chart revival, which pushed the song back into the Top 20, it peaked at No 14 and was in the charts for over 4-weeks. This release made a hit in three different decades.


(Single from 'The Pleasure Principle' album, 1979.) 

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
I't's the only way to live
In cars 

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars 

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me, please
If I open my door
In cars 

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars

Down In The Park
(Single from 'Replicas' album, 1979) 

Down in the park
Where the machmen
Meet the machines
And play 'Kill by numbers'
Down in the park
Wit a friend called 'Five' 

I was in a car crash
Or was it the war
But I've never been
Quite the same
Little white lies
Like 'I was there' 

Come to 'Zom Zoms'
A place to eat
Like it was built
In one day
You can watch the humans
Trying to run 

Oh look
There's a rape machine
I'd go outside
If he'd look the other way
You wouldn't believe
The things they do 

Down in the park
Where the chant is
'Death, death, death'
Until the sun cries morning
Down in the park
With friends of mine 

We are not lovers
We are not romantics
'We are here to serve you'
A different face
But the words never change

Are 'Friends' Electric?
(1979 single, from "Replicas" album) 

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette 

Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing
In a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought
I remembered you 

So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you 

So I open the door
It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
'Please sit down'
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed 

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love 

So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me
