The blog post I had prepped about Nicki Minaj will have to wait until tomorrow because when I dream about something I have to blog about it or it stays in my mind.Â Some people dream in color, others dream in black and white.Â I dream in Hall and Oates.
The fun fact I was dreaming about was that the song “Everytime You Go Away” by Paul Young was actually a cover.Â Originally released and written by none other than the masters themselves Hall and Oates.Â I dug up the H & O version below too because I was curious to hear it.Â They released it on an album in 80′ and Young covered it and released it in 85′.
I always had a love/hate relationship with the Young version.Â It was the soundtrack to long family car trips in the summers.Â Eventually hearing it so many times I decided I didn’t really like the echoing piano and that electric sitar annoyed me almost as much as my little sister did.Â Â (An electric sitar is an instrument that sounds like its from India…you can hear it in the song.)Â But, 25 years later the song is growing on me.Â I guess I am mellowing with age.
Paul Young’s version, “Everytime You Go Away”
