D80sV #77: Hall And Oates - Out Of Touch

Daily 80's Video #77: Here's a really fun video from the 80's, Hall And Oates' "Out of Touch". With these guys, similar to Wham, it leaves me wondering what exactly does John Oates do in this band? As far as I know, Daryl Hall does all the lead vocals. Well, to pin down exactly what John Oates does, besides a lot of cool dancing in this video, I went to Wikipedia. Okay, well, apparently Oates does sing lead sometimes. In addition he writes a lot of the music and plays guitar, synthesizer, and something called a synthguitar. Enjoy the general fun atmosphere of this video, including the oversized drum kit, the hokey yet fun special effects, the contributions from the other bandmates, ie. GE Smith (guitar), T-Bone Wolk (bass), Charles Dechant (sax), who would all eventually join the Saturday Night Band. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
