This week in 1981 Hall & Oates hit Number 1 with Kiss On My List". It was the third single from their album Voices, and became their second Billboard Hot 100 number-one single, after "Rich Girl" in 1977.
While two other songs from the album had returned the duo to chart activity, it was the success of "Kiss on My List" that confirmed the start of the duo's sustained run as one of American pop's top-selling acts, a run that lasted into 1989.
According to Daryl Hall, Eddie Van Halen copied the synth part of this song and used it for the song "Jump" by Van Halen.
What do you think? Did Van Halen copy the synth part of "Kiss On My List" in their song "Jump"?
