Music video by Prefab Sprout performing Cars And Girls. (C) 1988 Sony Music Subsidiary BV
"Cars and Girls" is a single released by the British rock group Prefab Sprout in 1988. It was the first single taken from their album of that year, From Langley Park to Memphis. The single reached number 44 in the UK Singles Chart, and spent five weeks in that listing. It is one of their best-known songs, despite its comparatively low chart placing.
The song is a response to Bruce Springsteen's perceived lyrical style and alleged narrow song repertoire. McAloon suggests that Springsteen's worldview is too restricted and that "some things hurt more, much more, than cars and girls". Ironically, the song's popularity is partly due to it being misinterpreted as a "driving song", leading it to appear on compilation albums such as Summer Cruisin' and Top Gear (a spin-off from the BBC Television motoring show of the same name).
