Well, we’re just as stunned as anybody that our plea for your votes to get Hall & Oates into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been recommended on Facebook more than 8,600 times. But we shouldn’t be, because one thing has become clear in the last week: Folks who love social media, love Hall & Oates.
Boxing great Bernard Hopkins retweeted our original plea. And then folks started piling on, all desperate to make sure that the duo doesn’t get left out of the Hall:
Seriously! Don't let this happen to Hall & Oates, especially Oates – his 'stache alone is Hall of Fame worthy. http://t.co/HLrVITl3ID

Hall & Oates Facebook page linking to our plea? That’s been liked more than 5,000 times, and hundreds of comments added:
So remember to go vote. They’re still stuck in sixth place—and only the top five vote-getters will be included in the “fan ballot” that helps determine the next class of entrants.
And now: Music.
