Song of the Day: 'You Make My Dreams Come True' by Hall & Oates

Hard to believe it's been a dozen years since I polled you guys about your favorite Hall and Oates song. Somehow "You Make My Dreams Come True" didn't make THE LIST. But that hasn't stopped it from just passing one billion streams, which John Oates recently discussed with NME, as well as going from legends to punchlines and back again, who would play him in a biopic and how he would be the film's mustache consultant.

“It’s amazing, right? What really gets me about this is when the song ‘You Make My Dreams’ was released as a single in 1981, it wasn’t a massive Number One hit -- it reached Number Five in the U.S.. We couldn’t have predicted the impact it would have. Over the years, it’s taken on a life of its own. It’s become this anthemic feel-good thing. A lot of it started with its use in the movie '500 Days of Summer' and the dance sequence they created around that song. From there on, it took on this life of its own. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. It’s an amazing feel-good groove and it has a great timeless appeal.”

Not sure about a bio film but I'm surprise these two don't have Broadway jukebox musical by now
