The Cars track listing

"All Mixed Up" is a song by The Cars and the final track on their 1978 self-titled debut album. It was written by bandleader Ric Ocasek.

Background[edit]

On the album, "All Mixed Up" is bridged together with "Moving in Stereo". Released as the B-side to the single "Good Times Roll", the song has received widespread airplay on American FM rock radio stations, and is generally played together with "Moving in Stereo" on AOR and classic rock radio stations. The song also saw single release in the Netherlands, backed with "You're All I've Got Tonight" (also from The Cars.)[1]

"All Mixed Up" features bassist Benjamin Orr on lead vocals in the studio version, though Ocasek sang lead vocals on the demo version. The song afforded Hawkes a chance to step away from his many synthesizers and play the closing saxophone solo, the only one in the Cars' discography.
