"Bye Bye Love" is a song by the American Boston-based rock band The Cars. The song appears on the band's 1978 eponymous debut album. It was written by singer/songwriter/bandleader Ric Ocasek and sung by bassist Benjamin Orr. Although the song was not released as a single, it has received regular airplay since the album was released.
The song was first performed, and recorded as a demo, some time in the mid-1970s when Ocasek and Orr were in the band Cap'n Swing. In this early version, the recurring keyboard theme between the verse lyrics was significantly different.
It was featured in a 2010 episode of Big Love, "The Sins of the Father". It was also featured in a scene of the 2011 film Super 8.
