Oh look, an earworm!
Daryl Hall and John Oates’ 1984 hit “Out of Touch” is one of those songs that works. It’s not overproduced, it’s not loud, it’s just existing.
Of course, it’s almost jingly, and it bores itself into your head. You will find yourself humming it at the most random times.
The almost industrial, heavily synth opening combines with a chugging beat. The song feels like a 1980s factory, and has just enough Philly sound mixed in.
The shining star on this track is the catchy “you’re out of touch; I’m out of time” chorus. The song would collapse without its lyrics.
