“What Are You Gonna Do Sara … Smile?”

This made my day. Hall and Oates go toe to toe with McDonald and Loggins in a back alley contest, with tragic results. Watch “Yacht Rock #2.” (Link via Ben.)

Takes me back to the 1980 Grammys…

  • Record of the Year “Sailing,” Christopher Cross
  • Album of the Year Christopher Cross, Christopher Cross
  • Song of the Year “Sailing,” Christopher Cross
    and yes, the Kiss Of Death Award:
  • Best New Artist Christopher Cross

    “Yacht Rock #1″ (Jeff “Skunk” Baxter tells Michael McDonald to write a hit … or else!) deserves a shoutout too. As I’ve said before Self’s (toy instrument) cover of the resulting Doobie tune is perhaps my favorite cover song of all time.

    Self – “What A Fool Believes” (MP3)

    I’m gonna watch “Yacht Rock #4″ now. Toto writes “Rosanna”!

    PREVIOUSLY: “If you don’t get why Meg White’s great, crank up the Toto.” (We linked to Jefito on that Toto post … how appropriate that today he’s sharing a ton of Hall & Oates.)
