Black cars are only happy when it rains

April 22, 2015


Back in 1985, Canadian-born musician, Gino Vanelli had quite a success with his synthpop hit “Black Cars” (doo-doo doo-doo doo-doo, Dah-dah dah!) wherein he asserted, no less than three times, that black cars did indeed look better in the shade.

Perhaps back then they did look better in the shade — in Los Angeles — but here in Vancouver, British Columbia, black cars have always looked their very best right after a rain storm when they’re still beaded with a million iridescent drops of water.

By the way, I remember quite liking the B-side of the “Black Cars” single, which was called “Imagination”. Click the image to enlarge it.
