Hall & Oates – “Out of Touch” – (1984)

“Out of Touch” is one of Hall & Oates’ best songs from the 1980s. It’s also one of the most New Wave-y songs that they ever recorded. It was the last #1 hit they had on the Hot 100. The opening lyrics “Shake it up…” always grab me and hook me into the song – and so does the hook of what sounds an awful lot like bells (but could be a synthesizer or something). I like the video – Daryl Hall has some serious dance moves (although the leopard-print suit is a bit much… but hey, it was 1984.).
