Number One song from 1982! In fact, the song spent four weeks at #1 in America, making it the biggest US hit of the '80s to feature a sax solo.
This song is about a very seductive woman with expensive tastes that she uses men to satisfy. The lyrics to this song use a luxury brand to develop the character as she is described as "a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar," referring to the high-end automobile.
The Song was used on the soundtrack to the Julia Roberts and Richard Gere movie Runaway Bride, a story about a woman with a reputation of jilting her fiancés at the altar.
The mustached half of this duo said in a recent interview that they’ve gone “from legends to punchlines and back again” He also said if they made a movie about them he’d want Robert Redford to play him but he would insist on being a mustache consultant.
The duo, who’ve been sampled by hip hop artists like Kanye and Notorious BIG, were working on a new album when covid hit, so that’s been put on hold.
Today's song is Hall and Oates Maneater.
