Do you know the members of the group The Cars?

It’s Ric Ocasek, Benjamin Orr, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes and David Robinson.

They were a fixture on MTV in the early 80’s (you know, back when they actually played MUSIC VIDEOS on MUSIC TELEVISION) with songs like “You Might Think”, “Drive” and today’s Throwback Thursday selection, “Magic.”

All three songs can beĀ found on The Cars’ album “Heartbeat City.”

“Magic” peaked at #12 on the Billboard charts but the song is probably best remembered for the fact that lead singer Ric Ocasek was walking on water in the music video.

No, Ocasek isn’t some sort of a religious deity.

They used a Plexiglas platform just under the surface of the water to pull the effect off.
