The Cars are the saddest group ever?



Are The Cars the saddest group of the 80s when it comes to penning depressing ballads? Not hardly. (I'm thinking maybe The Smiths.) But for today's round 3 of sad songs, you -- faithful reader -- must pick between several Cars classics.

Contender #1: I'm Not the One
Lyrics:  "We've been through this so many times. It's never clear. It's pantomime."

Contender #2: Drive
Lyrics: " Who's gonna tell you when it's too late. Who's gonna tell you things aren't so great."

Contender #3: Since You're Gone
Lyrics: "You're so treacherous when it comes to tenderness."

Contender #4: Why Can't I Have You
Lyrics: "I cling forever. I go all night"

Contender #5: My Best Friend's Girl
Lyrics: "She's my best friend's girl. And she used to be mine."

If you care about which song charted out the highest, the answer is "I'm Not the One." Prefer saddest video? Then go with "Drive." Tell us which Cars song is saddest.
