H&O For A Hurricane!

Being that I live in Southeastern Massachusetts I am gearing up for this hurricane we have visiting tomorrow.  It's going to be a long 8-12 hour stretch while Earl kicks our butts!  So I'm getting ready with some Hall & Oates Music that will no doubt soothe anyone through any storm.

There are a few albums I would suggest polishing off for a good listen!  I think I'll start off with "Private Eyes".  It contains some very fitting song titles for the occasion.  Namely, Looking For A Good Sign, I Can't Go For That (No Can Do), Friday Let Me Down and Head Above Water.  This is totally a high energy album...perfect for listening while hauling in your boat or tying down your lawn furniture! 

The next one up on the list is "ooh yeah!".  Why are we listening to this, you ask?'s my favorite full H&O album and it always puts me in a super happy and upbeat mood!  It's the name of the blog after all!! 

As for later in the evening when the winds are really roaring outside and the rain is coming down in sheets and we lose power we'll turn it over to the solo vocal stylings of Daryl Hall.  I think the "Can't Stop Dreaming" album will fit in very nicely here...Cab Driver is the perfect track to listen to durning a rain storm in the dark.  It's so sultry and romantic...

Of course I have to have a H&O Hurricane Earl playlist on the iPod, too!!  Here's what I've rustled up!
