Although it's a light, synthesizer-driven pop track, the lyrics to this song are quite profound, examining a person who never seems happy. Despite his efforts to find something better, he always returns to where he came from. Cars frontman Ric Ocasek wrote the song.
The fourth hit from The Cars Heartbeat City album, "Hello Again" came with a video directed by Don Monroe and Andy Warhol, who also appeared in the clip as a bartender. It was some of Warhol's last work, as he died in 1987.
The video starts with a fake TV show called "Rock Talk" where a host is discussing "gratuitous sex and violence in music videos" with a group of kids. As they get into the discussion, a car crashes through the set and the song starts. What comes next is a strangely PG sendup of videos with sexual imagery, with appearances by Gina Gershon. Warhol did make an uncensored version of the video, but MTV played the clean one.
