Adult Education

Post by jaimoe0 » Thu Mar 11, 2010 1:54 pm

OK, I've never been a huge Hall and Oates fan: I like "Sarah Smile," "Rich Girl" and "She's Gone," and I'll tap my foot to some of the catchier later hits, but how did the song "Adult Education" end up on a "Best of"? What a truly godawful mess of a song. Forgive me. I had to vent. It's like "Things you Can't Unhear"!

Completely agree. The song that kills me even more is "One on One". It's a goddamn basketball metaphor. Seriously? Basketball?

I'm tired of playing on the team
It seems I don't get time out anymore
What a change if we set the pace face to face
No one even trying to score
Oh oh I can feel the magic of your touch
And when you move in close a little bit means so much
Ooh yeah, you've got to understand baby
Time out is what I'm here for

One on one I wanna play that game tonight
One on one I know I wanna play that
One on one I wanna play that game tonight
One on one so slow


"Time out is what I'm here for"? FUCK YOU. And it has that spectacularly cheesy keyboard line that makes you want to hump something and then kill it so no one will find out you humped it all at the same time. I do like me some Hall & Oates, but this song is one of the most head-scratching hits I've ever heard. Like that Tubes song, "She's a Beauty". Don't get me started.
