And it's totally legit.

Say It Isn't So!!! Between Spotify, Pandora, iTunes, YouTube, any number of other music apps and...ahem...radio stations, there should be no shortage of ways to get your "Hall & Oates Fix" these days.

But, that's exactly what's promised by "Callin' Oates: Your Emergency Hall & Oates Helpline". I'd been seeing this all over social media for years but never bothered because, well...first paragraph.

But, for some reason it's been popping back up this week, so I actually dialed it up. It legitimately gives you that Hall & Oates fix, with a menu of options to choose from to play various Hall & Oates songs in their entirety. So just dial 719-266-2837 (that's 719-26-OATES...cleverly enough) and pick one of the following:

  • Option 1: "One on One". Hmm, I see what you did there.
  • Option 2: "Rich Girl"
  • Option 3: "Maneater"
  • Option 4 (and my favorite): "Private Eyes"

As you can see, there are only 4 songs to choose from among the duo's lengthy catalog, which might be the only negative to this fun little phone game that's all in good fun.

(Disclaimer: I haven't seen how much I might secretly be charged on my phone bill, or how many extra  "spam" calls I may soon recieve.)

But give it a try. You won't be sorry!
