Daryl Hall + John Oates: H2O (1982)
H2O was a very big record for Hall and Oates, and it spawned some big shiny hits, like Maneater and One on One. I know, Family Man was a big one too, but I have to say that I much prefer the original Mike Oldfield recording to this cover. By this time, the boys were a real top 40 phenomenon, so they lost some of their appeal, at least to me.
