Happy Birthday, Ric Ocasek (The Cars)!

Cars founder/guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer Ric Ocasek turns 62 today. Best known for such hits as "My Best Friend's Girl", "Good Times Roll", and "Shake It Up", the Boston quintet went on to sell over 60 million albums worldwide. After the band's break-up in 1989, Ocasek went on to produce albums for the likes of Weezer, Nada Surf, Johnny Bravo and others.

Most recently, Ocasek reunited with the surviving members of The Cars (bassist Benjamin Orr passed away in 2000) to record their first album in 24 years, Move Like This, which will hit stores on May 10. First single, "Sad Song", was issued earlier this month, as well as a video for the song "Blue Tip".
