favorite song friday: sara smile

The judges on The Voice blew it the other night when they passed up on Tini Grey, who did a pretty good version of Hall and Oates's "Sara Smile." Yes, he faltered a little, but his voice was certainly more compelling than some of the standard belters that these shows always seem to go for.

I was reminded while listening to his blind audition how much I love Daryl Hall's voice, and this song. Here is a very fun '70s glam version.

And here is another rendition, from Daryl's excellent web show, Live from Daryl's House, this time performed with (!) Smokey Robinson.

And if you like Hall and Oates, you'll love this uber-strange "video" they did for "She's Gone" ...
