Ric Ocasek celebrates his birthday today (March 23), and with The Cars pending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we have been all up in the band’s catalog and their music videos as of late.

Sure, some of their videos are a bit dated, but unlike some of the early clips from MTV’s infancy, the videos from The Cars still pack a ton of charm and still hold a special place in our hearts.  In honor of Ocasek’s birthday, here are five of the most delightful music videos from The Cars.
