Top 5 Hall & Oates Singles, In Order of Greatness, According To Me


They know what's up.

5)     Out Of Touch (1984)

Best part: The glorious first chord progression.

4) You Make My Dreams (commonly but mistakenly known as “You Make My Dreams Come True”) (1981)

Best part: Tie between the infectious bouncing-ball beat, and the first lyrics (where Hall comes in with “What I want, you’ve got…”

3) I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (1981)

Best part: Near the beginning, when the dream-like synth kicks in.

2) Rich Girl (1977)

Best part: The opening notes, when you realize you’re about to hear “Rich Girl”.

1) She’s Gone (1976)

Best part: “She’s gooo-oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo-oone, ohhh-wahhh!”

 

The musically bereft screeching that passes for a hit today can’t hold a candle to these timeless classics.

 

Addendum: If you’re wondering where “Maneater” and “Kiss On My List” are… they’re not here. On purpose.
