But honestly, this episode made me so nostalgic for the most irrelevant reasons. They went back to Greyskull Keep, finally home again. Victor got some surprise lines. They ran through tunnels ruined by lava, with descriptions that felt similar to tunnels that Vox Machina navigated during that first arc in the Underdark. They even managed to beat a door, their worst enemy, in two blows. And in the next episode, they finally face Thordak. I know most of that was unintentional and me seeing things that weren’t there, bu it just really felt like they came full circle, and they’re ready for this next episode to be IT.

On this day in music history: January 30, 1982 - “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” by Daryl Hall & John Oates hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts for 1 week, also topping the Club Play chart for 1 week on January 23, 1982. Written by Daryl Hall, John Oates, and Sara Allen, it is the fourth chart topping single for the blue eyed soul pop/rock duo from Philadelphia, PA. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, the song is inspired by an in studio jam by the duo leading to the basic track being cut on the spot. Hall completes the lyrics with his long time girlfriend Allen the next day. Originally cut with keyboards (primarily a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 synthesizer), guitar and a Roland CR-78 drum machine, Hall & Oates attempt to cut the song again using live drums. When the track loses its “slinky feel”, they go back to the original rhythm track. Issued in early November of 1981 as the follow up to “Private Eyes”, it quickly becomes another smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #59 on November 14, 1981, it climbs to the top of the chart eleven weeks later. “I Can’t Go For That” unseats Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” from the top of the pop chart, ten weeks after it had replaced “Eyes” at number one. “I Can’t Go For That” is also a smash on R&B radio and on club dance floors, becoming one of the rare instances of a white pop artist crossing over and topping the R&B singles chart. The song is also widely sampled, covered, and its hook being interpolated into songs by numerous artists including De La Soul, 2 Live Crew, Heavy D., Above The Law, Brian McKnight, Tamia, and Simply Red. “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
