Say what you will about Daryl Hall and his performing abilities, but he is one of the great pop songwriters and arrangers of his era. Vocally I think he always oversings a bit, putting in too many unnecessary and throw away notes, many that make me cringe. As a player, he is good, but not great. But as an writer, arranger, an interpreter, I think he is excellent. I love how much he loves the old soul standards. I’m right there with him.
Here is Daryl covering doing a great cover of a Eurythmics song, featuring ol’ Dave Stewart himself.
