Re: (TV) RE: Beatles Influence on Television
I can definitely hear a musical similarity between the Cars and Television.
The Cars song "Moving in Stereo" reminds me of something Television would do
sans synths, as well as the song it leads into "All Mixed Up". I don't know
and "Bye Bye Love" . Stuff off their first record.
