Just What I Needed is the classic 80s song by the band The Cars! This is a fun remake by the all girl group Whatever It Takes – W.I. T. The Larry Tee produced electro synth pop group’s first single release Ooh I Like It was a fun cut similar in style and sound to 80s acts like The Flirts, Stacey Q and even acts like Company B and the like. Later when their album came out I discovered the fun little remake of Just What I Needed. This music is bubblegum, cute and very pop inflected sound. I think Larry Tee was very influenced by those types of bands and sounds to produce a fun album.
The band is no longer now but this sound is still now so go check out the cuts by Whatever It Takes. In addition to The Cars cover Just What I Needed and Ooh, I Like It . Then there’s an Arthur Baker remixed cut Hold Me, Touch Me (with even a Blackstrobe Remix out there somewhere), I Surrender and finally their theme song Whatever It Takes. Overall a great fun poppy album worth hearing and owning for sure. The softer poppier side of Glass Candy, Ladytron and Adult!
