“Private Eyes” is the tenth studio album by Hall & Oates, released in 1981. The album includes two No.1 hits, the title track, "Private Eyes" and "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)", as well as the top ten hit "Did It in a Minute”. The song itself builds on the punchy sound of "Kiss on My List". The handclap chorus and vocal/keyboard hooks of the recording were augmented by the promotional video, featuring the band wearing detective garb (trench coats, fedoras, and suits). It was one of the duo's earliest hit videos on MTV. You will find this new style in under our 'Keyboard Softwa..
This is a song by British rock band ‘Dire Straits’ and comes from their 5th studio album, ‘Brothers in Arms’. It was released as a single in 1985 and peaked at No.7 in the US charts. It was the bands biggest UK commercial hit, peaking at No.2. The construct of the number is a simple rock and roll rhythm, with changes on chords I, IV & V. Its long introduction has become iconic and has an instantly recognisable melody played using a synth organ patch. The song lyrics mention "down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay", a reference to busking in the subway. It goes on to say the song..
The song was written by Jim Capaldi, Paul Carrack, and Peter Vale, and produced by the Eagles, Elliot Scheiner, and Rob Jacobs. It was first performed by the Eagles in 1994, during their "Hell Freezes Over" reunion tour.

In the United Kingdom, "Love Will Keep Us Alive" was issued as a single and peaked at number 52 on the UK Singles Chart. Paul C..

The single has sold over 900,000 copies in the UK. The composition and its arrangement suggest a relaxing sea setting, with cymbals imitating the sound of waves. Mick Fleetwood played his drum kit using timpani mallets to give a muted sound and it features a dreamy guitar solo from Peter Gre..

It gained greater popularity when Wilson Pickett covered it the following year on a single, a version that was also released on the 1966 album, The Wicked Pickett.
