Hall & Oates: You Make My Dreams [1980]

from the album Voices

Notable for the almost total lack of cymbals. Also, there's a chiming, clipped rhythm guitar sound, combined with a loping shuffle beat, that feels very characteristic of the era. I'm pretty sure that Pavement was referencing this sound on "Carrot Rope", and that the Beatles invented it on "Getting Better".

Note: I had the perfect image in mind to post with this song, but I simply could not find it on the Internet, so instead I went with two recently married alligators sticking their heads out of a limo.
