“Sara Smile” was the second single released from Hall & Oates’ 1975 self-titled album for RCA Records. Co-written by both halves of the duo, it was Hall & Oates’s breakthrough single, with a #4 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1976.

  1. I have an old vinyl with Hall and Oates somewhere. As I remember it sounded perfect but maybe to much. Not so much feelings but skilled musicians
