Song: Private Eyes (1981)
Artist: Hall and Oates
Album: Private Eyes
In six calendar years of blogging, I feel like there's a significant chance I've used this track as a SOD before, but frankly, I'm too excited to care about doubles or even triples of SODs at a time like this.
After decades of fandom, I'm finally going to Hall and Oates (with Squeeze; I've loooooved Tempted since childhood and don't know anything else!) in Mansfield on Thursday with my aunts, and I am fucking pumped up like the kicks of a school sh**ter.
After the alt-rock umbrella, I'd say 80s, and specifically, New Wave is one of my all-time favorite genres. Now, sure, Blue-Eyed Soul is a much more fitting category for John and Darryl, but of their nine listed genres on Wikipedia, New Wave was #7, and that's good enough for me.
Not to get too sappy on DOL when it's usually full of sarcasm and self-loathing, but I can't remember that last time I did something like this with just these two of my aunts. With COVID fucking up essentially the last year and a half, I can't wait to do something fun with family I can actually stand.
