    I've always been partial to "She's Gone" [face_love] [face_love]

    Video sucks but the song is great.

    If you replaced Mariah Carey with The Beatles, then I'd say 'me'.

    Hall and Oates' performance at Live Aid with The ex-Temptations guys (Ruffin & Kendricks) was one of the absolute highlights of the Philly show.

    Ghost writers? Like the abundance of ghost writers that helped H&O out. :p

    Actually I haven't seen Spinal Tap yet, so I can't really compare. [face_blush] I definitely plan to, though, I've heard many times that it's a classic.

    Brett Hull and Adam Oates were one of the best right wing/center combinations when they played for the St. Louis Blues in the early 90's.

    Great duo for sure.

    My favorite blue-eyed soul songs: Rich Girl, I Can't Go for That, She's Gone. She's Gone is the only one that I can remember them sharing the lead. I can't remember any songs with John Oates singing the lead.

    I don't think the Kendricks & Ruffin bit is on YouTube (but it's worth buying/hiring/borriwing the DVD for). Of course both those 2 legendary singers have subsequently passed away. :(

    You'd never find John Lemon embracing Christmas like Hall and Oates do. (War is Over) is piddling tripe compared to the glory that is

    [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98oB_AgIO-s]Hall and Oates - Jingle Bell Rock[/link].

    Rejoice and be glad in it.
