It's not all Metal in my world.
I'm thinking Hall & Oates might be the epitome of all things 80s rock and yet we never talk about them here. The songs are insanely catchy and the videos are hysterical. I just happened to hear "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" in a store over the weekend and I just had to watch the video.
The video is like a Saturday Night Live skit. While Hall & Oates are definitely pop rock, the very fact that they churned out videos like champs all through the 80s earns them a spot here on this website. Oh and my mom listened to "Private Eyes" nonstop when I was a kid, so I'm pretty sure Hall & Oates are in my DNA. Too bad I can't ever remember which one is Hall and which is Oates.
Enjoy your Labor Day, fellow Americans! While I continue to work on my house this long weekend, I'll be jamming to - you guessed it - Hall & Oates. Some of my favorites are below.
"I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)"
Fact: this is one of the most played songs on my iPod. I have no idea why.
Did you know that Hanoi Rocks covered Hall & Oates? They did. Here's "Winged Bull"
