all these male-obsessed asks lately are getting so boring! hugs from a fellow man-hater. your blog is amazing!

Thanks! I’m thinking that rather than bore everyone with future messages, I’ll save them up and create a collage or a montage set to music. I have some time to decide on the soundtrack, but right now I’m thinking “Maneater” by Hall & Oates.

On this day in music history: March 26, 1977 - “Rich Girl” by Daryl Hall & John Oates hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks, also peaking at #64 on the R&B singles chart on April 9, 1977. Written by Daryl Hall, it is the first chart topping single for the pop/rock duo from Philadelphia, PA. Hall is inspired to write the song after his girlfriend Sara Allen tells him about an ex-boyfriend she dated in college who was the heir to a fast food chain fortune. However he changes the subjects gender when he finishes writing it. Years later, “Son Of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz reveals in an interview that “Rich Girl” had motivated him to commit some of the murders. Rumors also circulate that the song is about kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst, but is proven to not be so. The revelation that Berkowitz had somehow been influenced by “Rich Girl”, later moves Hall to write the song “Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear Voices)” included on Hall & Oates album “Voices” in 1980. Released as the second single from Hall & Oates’ fifth album “Bigger Than Both Of Us” in January of 1977, “Girl” is an instant smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #81 on January 22, 1977, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. “Rich Girl” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.
