80s Timeworn Twelves: "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)"

"I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" 
by Hall & Oates (1981)

Hall & Oates were a hit making machine throughout the 80s. By the time their Private Eyes album was released in 1981, they had already achieve two #1 singles and a few other top ten hits. The first two singles released, the title track and "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" would both peak at the top spot on the charts. The latter would also top the R&B charts, which was a rarity for a non-African American group. The 12" single would feature a remixed version by Robert Wright that would add over 2 minutes to the album version. Side B was "Unguarded Minute," a Private Eyes album track.
