Daryl Hall featuring Chromeo: I Can't Go For That

A few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Daryl Hall and John Oates in concert. But when they performed what is probably my favorite Hall & Oates song, "I Can't Go For That," I wasn't digging their live arrangement. I realized it's because this version, recorded in Hall's garage, will probably be my favorite forever.

This version, starring the duo Chromeo, is part of the web series Live from Daryl's House, where Hall has musicians of all stripes join him at his upstate New York estate to jam (he now has a club and restaurant, as well as a home-renovation show, Daryl's Restoration Over-Hall). Artists play mostly their own songs on the show, but the best part is seeing each guest rock out a classic Hall & Oates tune. So if this particular version doesn't strike a chord with you, maybe you'll like Cee-Lo's take instead.
