Hall & Oates have a lot of hits, but they’re celebrating one BILLION streams of, “You Make My Dreams.”

John Oates says, quote, “It’s amazing, right?  What really gets me about this is when the song was released in 1981, it wasn’t a massive #1 hit . . . we couldn’t have predicted the impact it would have.

“It’s become this anthemic feel-good thing.  A lot of it started with its use in the movie ‘500 Days of Summer’.  From there on, it took on this life of its own.”
