I've always had a big crush on Daryl Hall ever since I was in junior high school and I got to go a concert on a press pass, even going backstage to interview and photograph them for a local paper. (Those are some photographs I should scan and post someday with the story of my Hall & Oates teenage musical crushes.)

This is a live performance I found on YouTube that shows how Daryl's voice is just as smooth in person as it was on the records.

While not my all time favorite Hall & Oates hit, I like nearly every track they've ever recorded, especially the older songs, but I thought "Kiss On My List" was an appropriate selection for today. Enjoy! 


Kiss On My List - Daryl Hall & John Oates

My friends wonder why I call you all of the time
What can I say
I don't feel the need to give such secrets away
You think maybe I need help, no, I know that I'm right
I'm just better off not listening to friends' advice

When they insist on knowing my bliss
I tell them this
When they want to know what the reason is
I only smile when I lie, then I tell them why

CHORUS:
(Because your kiss) your kiss is on my list
(Because your kiss) your kiss is on my list
Because your kiss is on my list of the best things in life
(Because your kiss) your kiss is on my list
(Because your kiss) your kiss I can't resist
Because your kiss is what I miss when I turn out the light

I go crazy wondering what there is to really see
Did the night just take up your time, 'cause it means more to me
Sometimes I forget what I'm doing, I don't forget what I want
Regret what I've done, regret you? I couldn't go on

And if you insist on knowing my bliss
I'll tell you this
If you want to know what the reason is
I'll only smile when I lie, then I'll tell you this

CHORUS
