Rob Thomas

Hey I just found this video today. Daryl Hall is doing a live video show from his house and it is awesome! Rob singing with Daryl Hall is just perfect! At least to alot of us girls out here!

Of course I have had a mad crush on Daryl Hall beginning in 1975 and for Rob Thomas since he sang "Smooth" with Carlos Santana. I love Matchbox 20 too but "Smooth" just killed the competition on the billboard lineup. Great tune! Rob Thomas wrote "Smooth" too...

"Smooth" won three Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. It spent a record-breaking ten consecutive weeks at the top of the VSpot Top 20 Countdown, a record that held up until the Dixie Chicks broke it in 2006. According to Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits by Fred Bronson, this is the number-one song of The Nineties (2003).

Rob Thomas wrote this song for his wife, Marisol Thomas. The pair married in 1999, after meeting backstage in 1998. Of Puerto Rican origin, she was the inspiration behind lines such as, "My muñequita, my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa" Thomas stated in interviews that the phrase "Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa" was inspired by the 1972 Elton John song "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters", which includes references to the 1961 Ben E. King song "Spanish Harlem".

On Billboard magazine's rankings of the top songs of the first fifty years of the Hot 100 singles chart, "Smooth" was ranked as the number-two song overall with "The Twist" at number 1.
