Cars drummer David Robinson was born on April 2nd, 1953. The original band that became the Cars was Cap’n Swing, The song “Bye Bye Love” was the only song that made it from that band to the Cars It was never a single, it has nevertheless received regular rock radio airplay since it was released. Guitarist Elliot Easton explains:

 

“I think it was the only song on the first Cars album that survived from the previous band that Ric and Ben and myself were in called Cap’n Swing that not many people at all, you really got to be a Cars fan to know about this. But one of the tunes we did was ‘Bye Bye Love’ in a very different arrangement. That’s the only song that survived from that era that actually made it through The Cars and made it onto the record.”
