haha, not only works as a music theory joke in general, but even more-so as a funk joke.

Yeah, they seem pretty low to me, too. Look at how much higher Lionel Richie and Journey are. H&O are probably a bit ahead of them in terms of commercial success and I don't see any big influence or importance for either of those artists above them.

Hall & Oates have one big thing as far as influence, MJ took the bass line of "Billie Jean" from "I Can't Go For That."

I agree, Brett, and for the same reasons, I also disagree with Motley Crue, REO Speedwagon, and especially Bryan Adams being ahead of Hall & Oates.

How do they actually rate on the breakdown of the criteria in comparison?

I would say none of the artists I mentioned score much in anything besides popularity, and that Hall & Oates beats all of them in popularity.

No way do the Geto Boys belong on this list. Their significant period was the 1990's.

He definitely belongs on the 1980's list.

Again, Hall & Oates in 45# is a joke. I'd put them in top 25-30, at least.

You're right, Bruno. Tears for Fears deserve better than that. Surely they're greater than Thompson Twins at least.
