Uh, oh, I touched your star

Touch and Go – The Cars (1980) 192kHz/24bit Audio Remaster HD Video

“Touch and Go” was released on the Cars’ third studio album, Panorama, in the summer of 1980.

Until now, The Cars have been one of the last of my very favorite bands that I hadn’t made even a single video for….though there are of course parts scattered about mind and drives! 🙂 This was a band that I was a huge fan of until the very end (of course Ric released a string of amazing strong solo albums….also thinking of some of my favorites in those mines!)….wow, we used to have a good time all over the place with The Cars playing in the background. This video was to be just another of my simple attempts at a stylish cartoony moving picture edit and it was actually almost finished before something went terribly wrong and even after every trick I knew to save the project, I finally gave up and almost decided not to redo it….I eventually had to re-render the video and start from scratch with the editing….ugh. ;-( It’s difficult to make the original low res source video (again for these efforts I really want to try and achieve the effect of a painting in motion!) I had look spanking new in HD 1080p, but you at least get the 24bit Remastered track as the source…..which sounds amazing! I hope you enjoy “Touch and Go” and THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Elliot Easton is such a truly great guitar player….a good sized chunk of my very favorite and tastiest! guitar solos are Elliot Easton’s….put on any Cars album and listen to Elliot’s work if you need to be reminded! 😉

The record marked a change from the upbeat pop rock and hard rock of the group’s previous albums, representing a more aggressive and experimental sound. It was not as commercially successful as The Cars’ previous or subsequent albums (until 1987’s Door to Door). However, it did hit #5 on the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified platinum by the RIAA.

As a single off the album, the song “Touch and Go” peaked at #37 on the Billboard 200.

[Lyrics]
All I need is what you’ve got
All I’ll tell is what you’re not
All you know is what you hear
I get this way when you come near

Then I know it’s gone too far
Uh, oh, I touched your star
And it felt so right
Just like the hush of midnight
And then you said
With me it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-o-o

All I need is you tonight
Flying like a cement kite, yeah
In your headlock on the floor
Who could ever ask for more

And I know it’s gone too far
Uh, oh, I touched your star
And it felt so right
Just like the hush of midni-ight
And then you said
With me it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-o-o

All I want is you tonight
I guess that dress does fit you tight, yeah
You know that look does make me shake
It almost looks too good to fake

And I know it’s gone too far
Uh, oh, I touched your star-r-r
And it felt so right
Just like the hush of midni-ight
Then you said
With me it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-o-o

Well it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Its touch and go-o-o-o

Well it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-wo yeah

Well it’s touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go-o-o-o
Touch and go

All I need is what you’ve got
