“Callin’ Oates:” the Cure for Your Winter Blues

Whether you live in the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast, or the Midwest you’ve undoubtedly been wondering where the heck winter was lurking for the last couple of months.

In the past week or so it has finally shown up all across the country bringing cold winds, freezing temperatures, and a big ole bunch of snow.

Undoubtedly, this sudden change from unseasonably warm and dry to extremely cold and snowy is going to get some people down in the dumps.

Luckily, I’ve got the just the cure y’all need for your winter blues.

I was in a meeting the other day when boss, buddy, and blogger Cassfox dropped a knowledge bomb on everyone in the meeting…there is a Hall and Oates hotline.

That’s right folks, you can dial up “Callin’ Oates: the Emergency Hall and Oates Hotline” any time—night or day—for a quick shot of auditory awesomeness.

All you’ve got to do is dial 719-26-OATES (719-266-2837) and you’ll be given the option of listening to one of four classic Hall and Oates songs.

The options are as follows:

Press 1 to hear “One on One
Press 2 to hear “Rich Girl
Press 3 to hear “Maneater
Press 4 to hear “Private Eyes

Unfortunately, “You Make My Dreams,” “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do),” and “Kiss on My List” are not currently options on the hotline, but let’s not even waste our time pretending y’all don’t have ‘em on your iPod already.

So go forth and dial—it is free after all—and get your Hall and Oates fix today to help blast away those winter blues.


  1. Hahaha! Doubly awesome!


  2. My boyfriend asked me to dial that number over Christmas break, and it didn’t even occur to me to ask what it was for before dialing (too trusting?). Needless to say, I listened to them all and loved every minute of it.


    • I know, right?! It’s pretty much the greatest idea ever. I can’t imagine we existed as a society for so long before someone finally made this happen.
