You Might Think: The Cars song in the movie Your Place or Mine
You Might Think is the song by The Cars you hear in the ending credits of the Netflix movie Your Place or Mine. You can listen to it in the official video below.
The Cars released You Might Think in February 1984 as the first single from their album Heartbeat City. It was the first song by The Cars to reach number one of the mainstream rock tracks in the US. The official video was also one of the first to use computer graphics, and it won the award as video of the year in the first edition of the MTV music video awards in 1984.
You Might Think is basically a love song celebrating the foolish side of love. In the lyrics, the band explains how the girl might think their love is crazy, but the protagonist is sure about it: all he wants is her, because of her wild side that touches his heart. You can find a part of its lyrics below.
You might think I’m crazy
To hang around with you
Maybe you think I’m lucky
To have something to do
But I think that you’re wild
Inside me is some child
You might think I’m foolish
Or maybe it’s untrue (you might think)
You might think I’m crazy (but all I want)
All I want is you
The Cars were one of the USA’s most influential new wave bands. Their style managed to introduce synths in the rock perspective: they were active in the 80s, which is the period when electronic music conquered pop worldwide, and new wave was precisely this passage phase from pure guitar rock to a different kind of music, more influenced by synthesizers.
In the movie, Peter (Ashton Kutcher) explains to Debbie’s son Jack that The Cars were his father’s favorite band. Since he had a controversial relationship with his father, he couldn’t listen to their music for a long time, but once he started to get again in touch with their songs, he just loved it. The Cars, therefore, represent an important emotional connection in the movie. The ending credits on You Might Think clearly indicate how crazy love can be and how that doesn’t make it less right at all.
Your Place or Mine’s soundtrack includes 10 songs in total from The Cars’ discography. You can find the full list of songs on Netflixlife.
