Hall & Oates

Philadelphia soulboys Hall & Oates hit pay dirt in America with their 1977 #1 single Rich Girl – which David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz would later claim as the motivation behind his killing spree!


The duo then embarked on a decade-long spell of chart domination, including the enormously successful – but nastily overproduced – I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do).

While the duo’s early work had a naive charm, later successes (ManeaterFamily Man et al) found Hall’s soulful vocals saturated with a diabolical array of tepid electro-funk backing.
