What Rhymes with Cars and Girls is the first solo album by You Am I frontman Tim Rogers, and the only release featuring the backing band The Twin Set (though members of the group would form Rogers's second solo backing band, The Temperance Union). 'You've Been So Good To Me So Far' and 'I Left My Heart All Over The Place' were released as a double-sided radio single.[1] The album was recorded at Jen Anderson's (of Weddings Parties Anything) home studio, and featured many varied musicians, including Sally Dastey of Tiddas (on 'Up-A-Ways'). In 2015, the album was adapted for the stage, with playwright Aidan Fennessy working with Tim Rogers to create a new musical What Rhymes with Cars and Girls for the Melbourne Theatre Company.
