Daryl Hall and John Oates have just uploaded high quality versions of their music videos to YouTube

You can see them at https://www.youtube.com/user/hallandoatesVEVO/videos

These are much better quality than the VHS recordings that many fans have uploaded over the years.

It’s not a mistake that they uploaded “Jingle Bell Rock” twice – one version has Daryl singing, and the other one has John.

My family got cable with MTV in July 1982. I even remember MTV celebrating its one year anniversary a month later. I though I had seen every Hall and Oates video a huge number of times – but I had no idea that they had videos of songs from their X-Static album. What a pleasant surprise!
