It's passed on.

"Hello Again (Remix Version)" - The Cars

I know it's been a while, but I'm back. Let's get right to it: After the huge success of the LP "Shake It Up" in 1982, The Cars went on hiatus and frontman Ric Ocasek and keyboardist Greg Hawkes both recorded solo records. They reunited 2 years later for the mega-smash, "Heartbeat City". The 1st single, "You Might Think", earned The Cars "Video Of the Year" at the very first MTV Video Music Awards and "Drive" was a big charter as well. "Hello Again" peaked at #20 the week of December 22, 1984 on the Hot 100 and this mix was done by Arthur Baker. TT: 5:54.

Arthur Baker was KING of the remix scene in 1984. All his mixes were great--"Girls Just Want To Have Fun", "Dancing In The Dark", Face To Face's "10-9-8" and "Under The Gun", Diana Ross' "Swept Away", Naked Eyes' "What In The Name Of Love", Hall & Oates "Out Of Touch".

He was on fire that year.
