12 Inches of Love: Hall & Oates Edition

Even though she isn't exactly into the tunes featured here, my mother checks out this blog from time to time. That's what mothers do. Outside of '60s pop, we don't have much music in common. Hall & Oates is one of the big exceptions. So, this is dedicated to her.

Hall & Oates were prolific hit makers from 1976 until about 1990, but this Philly duo had very few peers during my favorite years for the fellas, 1981-1983. They had ten Top 40 hits during this period, including four No. 1 smashes. These 12-inch singles are from the 1982 album 'H2O'. It's arguably their best. Enjoy a little '80s-pop nostalgia.
