Daryl Hall & John Oates – She’s Gone
This makes me feel old: Daryl Hall turns 75 today.
I grew up in the 70s and 80s — when you couldn’t spin through your radio dial without hearing Hall & Oates.
By the time I heard, “You Make My Dreams Come True,” for the 8-millionth time, I was kind of sick of Hall & Oates.
But as the years passed, I grew more fond of them and their music. John Oates has reinvented himself as an Americana artist. I like some of his newer stuff.
I reconnected with Hall and his music when he launched “Live from Daryl’s House” in 2007 — a free, monthly online show in which he and a guest star perform live at his restaurant/venue in Pawling, NY.

So in honor of Daryl’s 75th, I share with you a track from Hall & Oates, second (and, in my opinion, best) album, Abandoned Luncheonette.
This is one of those super-popular tracks. But it’s been a LONG time since I listened to Top-40 radio so I hadn’t heard this in a while. And, as I listen now, I think this one has some staying power. Now that I’m no longer sick of it, I like this one (a lot)…
