Tuesday's Flashback

One of the biggest hits of 1985, Out of Touch was Daryl Hall & John Oates last trip to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was viral on radio and the video played in endless rotation on MTV. The premiere single from their Big Bam Boom album, Out of Touch came at a time when the duo was experimenting with producing other artists as well as making hits of their own. It was one of the best examples of the magic that this pair could achieve when they joined forces.

Remaining a popular radio fixture, the video always takes one back to the big 80’s and the sound that defined a generation. It’s simply impossible to escape once you get into its hooks and grooves. Not once, not twice, but every time you hear it you’ll find your toes tapping to the beat and you’ll feel yourself humming along with the chorus. Out of Touch is a masterpiece.
