My Real Influences

Ben Gibbard, from Death Cab For Cutie:

>I've been thinking about my REAL influences lately, and I've realized that the question should really go a little further back, a little deeper. Probably back to a time before I knew who Fugazi and Pavement were. For me, that time was the 80s, and it was in the music of Hall & Oates.

i think nile rodgers from chic put it best - the thing hall & oates had going for them in the early years was that there was no mtv. so nobody knew they were white.

that said, how "sara smile" didn't make this guy's list, i don't know.
