She'll only come out at night

The subject of Hall & Oats came up at work this morning. I never remember how these conversations form, but that's not important. It just reminded me of a moment from my youth.
[Hall & Oats'] H20 followed in 1982 and it proved more successful than their two previous albums, selling over two million copies and launching their biggest hit single, "Maneater" ...

In 1982 I was 7 years old, and I was terrified of that song.

Never mind "Thriller." I didn't have MTV, so I hadn't seen the video with all the zombies. To me, "Thriller" was just a fun pop song.

But "Maneater" was a different case. I took the lyrics literally. As far as I was concerned, I needed to watch out because she was coming, and she was going to chew me up.
