Hall & Oates Lyrics


Beginning with their first hit in 1974 and lasting well
into the '80s, Daryl Hall and John Oates' smooth, catchy
take on Philly soul brought them enormous success,
including six number one singles and six platinum albums.

Hall & Oates' music was remarkably well-constructed and
produced; at their best, their songs were filled with
strong hooks and melodies that adhered to soul traditions
without being a slave to them by incorporating elements of
new wave and hard rock.

On their first records – "Whole Oates" (1972), "Abandoned More...

Review about Hall & Oates songs
Hall & Oates my favorite pop/rock duo of all time!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Head Above Water performed by Hall & Oates

This was never released a single but this might be the best track off their 1981 "Private Eyes" album along with "Your Imagination". I was lucky enough to be in high school in the early 80's when they had so many hits. Great memories and incredible music from these guys.

Such secrets as this. | Reviewer: Jim Mann
    ------ About the song Kiss on My List performed by Hall & Oates

I've always imagined this song performed to each other while Hall & Oates were secretly lovers. This image adds a powerful excitement to this performance for me and many of my friends.

A perfect picture of the 80's | Reviewer: President Derka
    ------ About the song You Make My Dreams performed by Hall & Oates

At risk of sounding like in old man when I am 30, I have to be blunt about this. They don't make them like they used to. This song is a shining example of something that could be just a fun bouncy song to listen to and doesn't need any lyrics worth listening to (Like a G6, Call Me Maybe, Let's Get it Started,....). But instead, this is a true love song full of celebration with meanings to what they are saying, along with a beat that has you bouncing like a fool in your car. Take a few minutes and wrap your mind about, "Like a flame that burns the candle, a candle feeds the flame." Along with gems like, "I wrap yourself around me, 'cause I'm not the way you found me, and I'll never be the same."

I used to say that all the good music had already been made. But, I have listened to very good music made in the last couple of years, just not on the radio. I would love to see thoughtful music like this make a comeback so that I can have a reason to listen to something other that oldies on the radio. Seriously, am I the only person who doesn't want to listen to thumping club music on my way to my job each morning?

Ennui On The Mountain - a terrific song | Reviewer: Stu

I still have the 45. The words are; Storm warning, thunder in my heart, tears in my heart. falling like rain, Baby since you left, I haven't been myself, They're black clouds over my head, girl, since you left with someone else.

    ------ About the song Storm Warning performed by Hall & Oates

'Storm Warning' was sung originally by an R&B group from Philadelphia PA -- The Volcanos, in 1965. The Volcanos later on became The Trammps (Disco Champs!!) You can either check The Trammps page or google 'r&B song Storm Warning' and see what comes up.

Hall & Oates NOT Original Artists Of This Song | Reviewer: Boogeyman Tom
    ------ About the song Storm Warning performed by Hall & Oates

I Beg The Difference with you my brotha, but Hall and Oates are NOT the original artists of this song and I need to know who the Original R&B 60's or 70's Artist(s) of this song are or were. Hall and Oates did the remake of this song, BUT ARE NOT THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS OF THIS SONG

OATS | Reviewer: McKnight Brown
    ------ About the song I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) performed by Hall & Oates

Nice review, Brett! BRAVO my H&0 Soul mate! I concur -- "I can't go for that (no can do)" is by far and away the best song ever written. I have personally thrown down in fisticuffs over this statement. But the statement has also saved my life. I will spare the details, but it involved a guy in jail who looked a lot like Oats. Ohh, I live a very divided and haunted life. I ramble -- The boys really knew how to harmonize back then. Almost as though thier pipes were crafted and married by Apollo himself! Haaa, I jest! Mythology buffs have to agree. I have been to 152 (and counting) H&O concerts. All of which were truly out of body experinces. The line, "Use the body, now you want my soul" gives me the hebejebees (think of aforementioned Oats look alike). Life really can be a "Bitch Girl"! "Did I go to far" with this?

Song review | Reviewer: Leondesargh
    ------ About the song Out Of Touch performed by Hall & Oates

I think this song is telling about a nearly desperates Men while approaches his Women, in order to make her fallin' love with him. Because the women is getting out of his touch and he's running out of time to earn some love respect from his women. ;-)
