Daryl Hall und John Oates hatten mit einer Mischung aus Rhythm and Blues , Soul und dem für die er Jahre typischen New-Wave -Pop ihren Stil gefunden. Zwischen Sommer bis Anfang folgte ein Hit auf den anderen. Auf dem Höhepunkt seines Erfolges, nach Auftritten bei Live Aid und zusammen mit David Ruffin und Eddie Kendricks , Mitgliedern der Band The Temptations , traf das Duo die bewusste Entscheidung eines Rückzugs zur Weiterentwicklung eigener Projekte und ihrer Musik.

Für beide Musiker waren weniger die Charterfolge wesentlich, sondern ihre Musik live vor Publikum zu präsentieren und ihre Songs dabei immer wieder neu zu arrangieren. Durch den eindeutigen Schwerpunkt in ihrer Karriere auf die Musik sind sie im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen erfolgreichen Interpreten niemals durch Skandale oder spektakuläre Bühnenshows in Erscheinung getreten. In der ersten Hälfte der Achtziger Jahre waren sie auch durch ihre auf MTV gesendeten Musikvideos und MTV Specials in den USA sehr populär.

Daryl Hall, der bereits mit Sacred Songs ein Soloalbum herausgebracht hatte, glückte im Sommer mit dem Rocksong Dreamtime US Platz 5 , der aus dem von David A. They did release a few hit singles during this period: In , RCA attempted to push Daryl Hall to the fore with his first solo effort Sacred Songs.

However, after being presented with the highly experimental recording produced by Robert Fripp of King Crimson , RCA became unwilling to release what was, in their view, a non-commercial album.

The pair felt that the biggest hindrance to their success was that their music was being filtered through outside producers, and that studio musicians were not familiar with their own tastes and thoughts.

They also wished to capture the sound of New York City which, by then, had become their home. As a result, instead of recording in Los Angeles , as they had done previously, they decided to record at Electric Lady Studios in New York City, just five minutes away from their apartments, and began producing their own recordings with their touring band backing them in the studio. They also enlisted Hall's girlfriend Sara Allen and also her younger sister Janna as songwriting collaborators, as well as beginning a working relationship with Neil Kernon , an engineer on Voices who would work as co-producer on their succeeding two albums.

The first two singles from the album charted fairly well, with " How Does It Feel to Be Back " charting at Number The well-received cover of The Righteous Brothers ' " You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' " just missed the Top 10, peaking at Number 12, but spent 14 weeks in the Top After the release of that song, Oates' contribution as the lead vocalist diminished on future releases.

The third single " Kiss on My List " hit Number 1 in April and remained there for three weeks. The follow-up single " You Make My Dreams " reached Number 5 in July of that year. The other well-known song from Voices is the emotive ballad " Everytime You Go Away ", with powerful lead vocals by Hall, who wrote it. It was originally performed by Mike Oldfield , who released it in, eh, Then I started hearing it everywhere in hip-hop.

The beat is infectious, the lyrics terrific. Had I Known You Better Then —Simply beautiful vocals and arrangement. This is a perfect example. Camellia —A couple of years ago Hall and Oates starter performing this live again. He takes a song, deviates from the lyircs, ad-libs, jumps around. And it always works. Five years later, Paul Young covers it and hits No. The record sucks really bad. The album cover speaks for the album—dumb, lame, bad.

That being said, I really dig this song. You Make My Dreams —Huge hit, catchy as herpes. But this thing is infectious.
