I Die, You Die

Occasionally I try to triangulate the perfect song, measured loosely in terms of how many people, upon hearing said song, would go, "Damn, that's a pretty good song." I think it's safe to say that Cars is definitely higher on the list of perfect songs than, say, almost any given Led Zeppelin or DC Talk track. I love that you can't even see the Tubeway Army in this video, just Gary in his, uh, smoking jacket? I once saw a DVD of a performance where he sang this in a bumper car that drove around the stage. If anyone knows what DVD that is, holler!
