Other missing radio staples include "You're All I've Got Tonight," "It's All I Can Do," and the title track from Candy-O, which would have made the collection definitive all are included on the more extensive Just What I Needed: The Cars Anthology from 1995. But for the casual fan, Greatest Hits will do the trick.

    Only one song extremely good.

    Music also good but not so good as I expected. I will give it 3 stars but the song ``Heartbeat City´´ saves the album, and thats why i give it 4 stars.
