Soulful performance from Daryl Hall and John Oates of their 1976 hit, which flew to number 5 in the US Billboard charts and peaked at a creditable number 30 in the UK - not bad for a first chart entry of many which would appear over the following years, and also given the increasing dominance of disco over pure soul at this time. Their best times would follow in the Eighties, but for now they had set their footprints in the music business. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hall_%26_Oates
A lot of soul!
Us Johnsons like our souls ... no! That doesn't sound right, that last bit! We like soul - that is all!
Have you checked out "At Daryl's House" on YouTube ? Full of gorgeous renditions of their songbook!
love love love it. Always did, always will, Lee. Like Bee Bee I'm a huge fan of Live from Daryl's house. Some sublime versions of H and O songs AND SOME.
Guilty pleasure... a drink and a quick decision.
Nice one, Lee
probably the least guilty of H&O pleasures, actually!
@BeeBee I was going to jam something from Daryl's House, I have it on my "Jam List"...
Great jam Lee.
@Deborah No need to feel guilty. Hall and Oates do blue eyed soul at it's very best.
Daryl's House is class. Puts terrestrial music broadcasting in the UKE to shame.
