I've been into them since I was a little girl. I can't believe this is a thread!!! When I saw it my heart skipped a beat, I love them so much, they're a huge part of my musical life!!
I have some of their stuff on vinyl and my ringtone is "Out of Touch" (big bam boom album, 1984)!!! My dream is to record a song with them. They're so musically gifted. Right from when they were doing folk songs with Daryl on mandolin their songs were so beautiful. What's kinda cool is, here in Australia, they've sort of faded away from the public mind so they're like my own little obsession that I don't have to share. I asked some kids in a coffee shop if they knew Hall and Oates, and they had no idea, so I said, "you know, Maneater?" and they said, "oh that's Nelly Furtado"
Ive never known any artist to write in so many genres so well! And Daryl is my favourite male singer, his voice is so perfect! Ok, I'll stop gushing, but babenwaiting, you so asked for it, bringing them up
