Back in the 1980s Hall & Oates were huge. They have an incredible six number one hits under their belt according to the Billboard pop song charts. They also have 7 platinum and 6 gold records hanging on their walls. When I was younger, I was part of the crowd that shunned Hall & Oates as "chick music", and am probably guilty of teasing those I discovered to be fans. But now that I'm older and more mature it's easy to hear why Hall & Oates were so successful. Simply put, they wrote some incredibly catchy songs. Many of which, have soaked deep into the popular culture. Oates has shaved off his trademark mustache, but the music lives on, and they are still performing today, most notably on last year's American Idol season finale.
