The Cars Synth Just What I Needed

In addition to The Cars uncanny knack for writing killer guitar riffs, the secret to so many of The Cars hit songs lies in those bloody monophonic synth lines that you just can't seem to stop humming for weeks after you've heard it. Indeed, Greg Hawkes was The Cars best -kept-secret! He wielded the synth not as a typical background pad, but rather, as a lead guitar! It was a 1970's Univox MiniKorg 700s synthesizer that Hawkes employed on the 1978 Cars classic, Just What I Needed.
