The lead single from 2011's Move Like This, "Sad Song" marked The Cars' first release in almost 25 years. Lead singer Ric Ocasek said that the tune runs the spectrum of emotions: "The lyrics in the song, it's all about 'heartache's waiting to strike' and 'too many screamers wearing a mask,' which is all kind of a sad scenario," he explained. "But it's got happy music and a happy melody. It's almost like 'Just What I Needed,' where you're looking for someone to bleep and you don't realize the song is not really that positive."
