Remember That Song – 3/23/18

Can you name the artist and song:

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turned your eyes away
If you don’t feel complete
If I don’t take you all of the way then go


Last Song: “Freeway of Love” by Aretha Franklin from the album Who’s Zoomin’ Who? (1985)

Great job Jim (@JimVilk) and Tony (@Seven_Soldiers)!!!

Oh, we got some places to see
I brought all the maps with me
So jump right in, it ain’t no sin
Take a ride in my machine

Hall & Oates March Madness Tournament: Finals

Out of Touch vs. I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)

Well, here we are. The Hall & Oates Finals! This has been an incredible tournament. For many of us, this has been more exciting than the actual NCAA tournament.
“Out of Touch” reached this round by defeating “Maneater” by a score of 11-10. “Out of Touch” was released as the lead single from Big Bam Boom on October 4, 1984, and it was their last Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, topping the chart for two weeks in December 1984. It also became the duo’s fourteenth consecutive top 40 hit since 1980.

“I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” reached the final round by edging out “You Make My Dreams” by a score of 11-9. “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” was released as the second single from their tenth studio album, Private Eyes (1981). The song became the fourth number-one hit single of their career on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second hit single from Private Eyes.

So, which of these #1 songs will get the distinction of being the champion of the Return to the ’80s 2018 March Madness Tournament? Voting is open now, and will close at 12:00pm Eastern on Monday, March 26.

Last Song: “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure from the album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (1987)

Spinning on that dizzy edge
Kissed her face and kissed her head
Dreamed of all the different ways, I had to make her glow
Why are you so far away she said

Hall & Oates March Madness Tournament: Final Four

Wow! What a finish to the Elite 8! There were two blowouts, and two tight matches. And one of those matches had to go into overtime! And the overtime was very exciting. I posted the overtime poll on Twitter, the 80s Fans Unite!!! Facebook group, and the Return to the ’80s Facebook group. “Kiss On My List” defeated “You Make My Dreams” by the narrow margin of 23-22. On the the 80s Fans Unite!!! page, “Dreams” squeaked by 5-4. The tie breaker was on the Return to the ’80s Facebook group page where “Dreams” won handily 6-0, moving it on to the next round. We’re getting down to the nitty gritty now! You can place a vote in each bracket

Great job Todd (@ToddShriver)!!!

And from what you said
I know you’ve gotten over me
It’ll never be the way it used to be
So if it’s gotta be this way
Don’t worry baby, I can take the news, okay

Hall & Oates March Madness Tournament: Elite Eight

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.

Bracket 1

Out of Touch (1) def. How Does It Feel to Be Back (51-7)
Method of Modern Love (2) def. Did It in a Minute (30-24)

Bracket 2

Maneater (1) def You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling (39-15)
One on One (2) def Adult Education (35-19)

I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do) (2) def. Family Man (46-6)
