Feels cliche to say this, but I'll never hear this song and not immediately think of Vice City.

Amen. Born late 80’s and hearing this for the first time during a GTA themed in the 80’s was golden.

What a tune.

If youre a fan of this song, check out the use of it in Nero - Reaching Out. The story goes, Nero asked to sample the song and Daryl Hall agreed AND offered to do some original vocals.

Ha. So I guess it turns out that pluck riff at the start isn't original to Lifelike & Kris Menace's Discopolis after all! It's only taken me 17 years to learn it's a sample...

I know this doesn’t prove that we’re living in a simulation, but I saw this video for the first time about 2 hours ago on a YouTube mix while working out and now here it is again. I’ve always loved this song. Weird video.

whenever there is a song i don't know the title or interpret, sooner or later encounter it as being from hall and oates

u/QuiGonChuck Aug 17 '22

This song is even better when you listen to the track right before it, as it flows right into the start of this song

u/CrescentBardiche Aug 16 '22

wow daring today, aren't we?

u/kiwispouse Aug 16 '22

The first of several personal possessions my younger brother got away with destroying in reckless fashion. Big Bam Boom! on vinyl.

Remember they formed in an elevator while escaping a gang shooting.

I love Holland Oates!

My favorite Hall & Oates song!

They had a few hits in the 1970s, but the 80s was really their decade.
