Right now Live From Daryl's House is on in the background. A few years ago I caught a concert of theirs on one of the public television stations.
 -
I was amazed by the sheer number of their songs I knew all the words to-you could NOT escape H2O in the 80's!!
 -

Some of the ones that were faves-or knew by heart-whether I liked them or not:
Did It In A Minute
Everytime You Go Away
I Can't Go For That
Kiss On My List
Maneater-Oh-oh here she comes, watch out boy she'll chew you up!
Out of Touch
Private Eyes-they're watching you!
 -
Rich Girl
Sara Smile
You Make My Dreams Come True

What can I say? They ruled the 80's!

I've always loved Hall and Oates as well...essential 80's. * I was going to dress up as John Oates for Halloween one time...but couldn't find a wig or fake moustache big enough! OK...I made all that up...just sayin!

Anyone else enjoy hearing "You Make My Dreams Come True" in the movie "(500) Days of Summer"? I love when Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks in the window and sees his reflection as Han Solo!

Of course, I've always been a Joseph Gordon-Levitt fan because of "10 Things I Hate About You" and the underrated "Brick". But when he showed up in "500 Days" with those Joy Division and Clash t-shirts .. so awesome!

And Bamersy.. excellent thread once again! My fav Hall & Oates tunes are "Private Eyes", "Rich Girl", & "Sara Smile".

I respect them more now than in the 80's.. they were just overplayed back then for me. I had MTV as a kid and their videos were on constantly. But now it is sweet music to my ears to hear a Hall & Oates tune.

Got to see them for free in concert because my girlfriend when I was in college won them on the radio. It was actually a blast!

'You Make My Dreams' Always makes me think of Wedding Singer still..........but Valley I agree with you.....500 Days and Joesph did it well, which in all honesty I loved 500 Days....what a funny, honest, good movie!

I respect and love me some Hall & Oates! 'Everytime You Go Away' is probably one of my favs.

Some things that stood out for me back then about this group are:

Adam Curry with Daryl's Hair:
 -
 -

What was referred to as a "porn star stache"
 -

And this strange album cover from the mid 70's I think:
 -
I know there was a story behind it-like wanting an androgynous "Bowie"-like look. Glad they didn't stick with that one [Wink]

I think of Wedding Singer too-when Julia's looking at wedding dresses
"What I want, you've got
But it might be hard to handle
Like the flame that burns the candle [Smile]

Haven't seen 500 Days-by love Joseph Gordon-Levitt in The Lookout and as Buddy from That 70's Show.

"One on One" I didn't mention on purpose-there was a movie with Robbie Benson and Annette O'Toole that I just couldn't stand with that title.

Embarrassing admission time!

I wait until I'm on the freeway with the windows up before I turn on "One On One" and "Wait For Me" and sing along at the top of my lungs. I prefer the freeway when I'm singing alone in the car because on surface streets I have to stop for red lights, and then I have to stop singing or else the people in the cars next to me will laugh.

I'm convinced I have those songs down though, so how bad could I sound?

this is so me. when i travel, i love to sing. and i too, wait until i am on the highway. [Big Grin]


valley, i love 500 days of summer and i am a big JGL fan as well. have you seen him in a movie called Manic? zooey deschanel was also in that one with him. very intense movie though.

i bought the 500 days blu-ray for only $12.00. and everytime i hear you make my dreams, i have to picture JGL doing that dance where he throws his arms down, and snaps. great movie. [Smile]

I had a feeling I wasn't the only one, Ronnie [Smile]

I haven't seen Manic before, so I'll check that out.

Bamersy mentioned "Live From Daryl's House", a fun webisode thing Daryl Hall does on his website. He invites other artists to come over and play their songs and H&O songs at his home studio. Here's a good episode with a pretty cool newer band called Neon Trees - http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/currentep.html?ep_id=50

Devolution here,

Not for nothing but One on One with Rob Benson is one of the great basketball movies of all time.

Ok: Bam-Bam hates it; Devo likes it; I've never seen it - what's the deal? Does this movie suck or not?

I had a very love/hate relationship with Robby in the late 70's. Loved Ice Castles, was very confused by Ode to Billy Joe and was not an Annette O'Toole fan-probably saw it in the days of HBO playing the same movies to death. Have always associated the H&O song with the film.

Good explanation. I like Annette O'Toole, but like you I have something of a love / hate thing for Robby (not sexually). This makes me want to see the movie even more.

I can recollect seeing the film clip for Hall & Oates "Private Eyes" on the ABC's children's series "Bang Goes The Budgie" as a child.

I in addition had it on cassette tape.

I'm partial to their songs "Kiss On My List," "Maneater" and "Out Of Touch."

This is their official website.

I Never was a fan of these two.

No particular reason why - I just think there were many many thousands of better artists of all genres, and they were possibly a bit of a throwback to the easy-listening 1970's music - their stuff was just too bland to stir any interest whatsoever.

I'm in cahoots with Paul here. I will admit to bouncing along a time or two with songs like "Private Eye" or "Out of Touch" when they played on radio or MTV or something when I was younger. But, their music just wasn't edgy enough to have any real staying power with me.
