    “Just What I Needed” was The Cars’s debut single. It was actually on their 1977 demo tape and had been played on the radio in the band’s hometown Boston, before they were ever signed.

    Just What I Needed, like many other tracks on The Cars, originated as a demo tape recorded by the band in 1977. Ric Ocasek had originally written the song in the basement of the commune he lived in at the time. Cars keyboardist Greg Hawkes recalled the first time he heard the song in an interview, saying, "I remember hearing 'Just What I Needed,' thinking ... 'Wow, that's pretty cool. It's got something sort of unique about it, its, like, nice and consise and ... fairly short pop song format' ... so I still remember hearing that for the first time."
