Welcome back to the Hall & Oates March Madness Tournament! It took me all weekend to try to come up with these brackets. There are so many incredible songs to choose from, so it was difficult. While all Hall & Oates songs are great, we are now getting into the elite. So, things are about to get very interesting.

Speaking of interesting, while listening to podcasts yesterday, I got to Martha Quinn’s totally awesome podcast Talk Talk with Martha Quinn. On this particular latest episode, Martha had none other than John Oates as a guest! It was a phenomenal interview. Hall & Oates is going to be touring with the group Train. So they spoke on that. And John Oates also has a brand new solo album out called Arkansas. It is a great album all the way through! It doesn’t have that classic Hall & Oates sound. This particular album has a kind of old school country/western feel, but blended with a modern sound. It reminded me of the first part of Van Halen’s “Ice Cream Man”. It is very cool, and I suggest you check it out. And if you are reading this, I would highly suggest that you listen and subscribe to Martha Quinn’s podcast, Talk Talk with Martha Quinn. You can also listen to Martha every single morning from 6am – 10am Pacific time on iHeart80s @ 103.7.

OK, let’s move on to the Elite 8. Just like yesterday, you can vote for a song in each bracket. You can also click on the song title to get the YouTube video. This poll will be open for 24 hours. Please share this with all your friends. The more votes there are, the more exciting this will get.
