Sunrise by Simply Red samples I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do) by Hall & Oates. How can you sample a classic and make it better? You almost can’t. But Sunrise is still on my list because it’s fun–in a smooth jazz kind of way. I’m not even sure what that means.
“Around 1974, I graduated into the occult, and spent a solid six or seven years immersed in the Kabala and the Chaldean, Celtic, and Druidic traditions … I also became fascinated with Aleister Crowley, the nineteenth-century magician who shared these beliefs.” (Penthouse Magazine, March, 1987, pp. 60,62) - Daryl Hall
I just love this song. It’s completely nonsensical that I love this song, but I do. It’s just so good. Most exciting moment ever, was watching ‘Adult Education’ play it in “She’s Out of My League”. Stainer is awesome. Who wouldn’t want to be in a Hall & Oates cover band? All men should look like either Hall or Oates. Totally sexy.
