Soundtrack of a Lifetime - 2022 - Daryll Hall

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000

I like to say that Hall & Oates saved the 1980s from copycats and repetition of the super bands of the 1970s. It was getting hard to find a fresh sound, and Blue-eyed soul was carving a niche left behind by the soul singers of the 1970s. Hall & Oates were producing hit after hit.

They made many legendary Soul and R&B hits during their career like Sara Smile, I Can’t Go for That and You Make My Dreams Come True.

In 2003, Hall & Oates were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. They remain the most selling successful duo of all time, ahead of the Carpenters, the Everly Brothers, and Simon & Garfunkel.

In April 2014, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and on September 2, 2016, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

They continue to record and tour both as a duo and as solo artists.

Today’s song is a solo acoustic version of their 1973 hit She’s Gone. It has a decidedly different feel than the earlier release by the Hall & Oates band and I like it better. In this version, Daryll pours his heart out enough to bring a tear to your eye.

I first heard this recording on the Smooth Jazz radio station here in Phoenix and immediately searched for a copy for my playlist. I listen to it often.

I hope you enjoy it as well.

Hi Joseph- I'm not happy that the month is coming to an end because I've so enjoyed your soundtracks!  I don't think I was much into the music of the 80's but I like Hall & Oates.
