"I'm not just some guy that's stoned out and happened to write a song, and even if I were, it would still be a problem, because you should always ask permission to use the work," Hall said.Yeah, man, like, you know.
But they were pretty hot for a while, pumping out workable pop tunes. Hall wrote Still the One, ironically, for a wife he divorced.

I'm not sure what had come over me when I wrote the above. The song was Still the One. CNN accurately reported that it was written by John Hall of the band Orleans. I saw "Hall" and thought Hall & Oates.
The David Kilmer who points out my error in the comments on this post is my brother, who will be a non-stereotypical A.B.B. voter.
I think my brother must have been asleep during the seventies. The songwriter in question *was* John Hall, and the band was Orleans. You might remember their other mega-hits, "Love Takes Time" and "Dance With Me." The whole story is sad, kind of, because the song was so appropriate for the BC04 campaign: "We're still havin' fun, and you're still the one."
