Daryl Hall is a fucking amazing vocalist. He got started in Philly soul groups and earned his chops, and the H20 songs are extremely well crafted and hold up today, even if some sound a bit dated given the 80’s sounds used.
As for Pablo Cruise, Seals & Crofts, England Dan and John Ford Coley, that Wildfire song, etc. - a big Meh. That song “Sometimes When We Touch” - Argh! I would prefer a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, thanks. Those songs are part of the soundtrack of my life, but I usually change the channel when they come on in my brain
Some soft stuff was wonderful - Windy by the Association comes to mind. Some good Dan Fogelberg and John Denver. But hearing a few hairy guys singing strummy songs about trying to get a girl to hook up with them? Pass.
