There’s nothing like having an old-fashioned sing-along with your best friends in the car. It’s so popular that there’s a whole show about it. When I was on vacation last week, my friends and I had an ’80’s and early ’90’s driving jam session, shouting some serious retro bops at the top of our lungs. One band we blasted was Hall and Oates.
I’ve never been a huge Hall and Oates superfan, but listening to songs like “Say It Isn’t So” and “Private Eyes” reminded me of their excellence. And lucky for you, if you are a Hall and Oates fan, you can catch them at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand this summer.
I dare you to not jam out to this one:
Listening to all this ’80’s light rock reminded me of another highly-produced group of hitmakers, Huey Lewis and the News, the guys that made it hip to be square.
Let’s throw it back to the ’80’s version of nostalgia: Goin’ to the ’50’s!
Huey Lewis and the News and Hall and Oats occupy a similar sonic and aesthetic space in my mind, so I threw the question out to Twitter and y’all got some OPINIONS:
Important inquiry. Which band do you like more: Hall and Oates or Huey Lewis and the News?
