"Sara Smile" is a song written and recorded by the American musical duo Hall & Oates. It was released as the second single from their album Daryl Hall & John Oates. The song was the group's first Top 10 hit in the US, reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100. "Sara Smile" first appeared in August 1975 as the second cut on the RCA Records album Daryl Hall & John Oates. The song was performed by Hall & Oates during their September–November 1975 tour in support of the album, with a reviewer noting that listeners who liked "She's Gone" would also like the softer ballad "Sara Smile". In late 1975, "Sara Smile" was prepared as a 45 rpm 7-inch single release – the second single from the album. It first entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart on January 31, 1976, at number 91. Cowritten by both halves of the duo, "Sara Smile" turned out to be Hall & Oates' breakthrough single, reaching a number 4 peak on the Hot 100 at the end of June 1976. It was written about Hall's then-girlfriend, stewardess Sara Allen. The couple was together for almost 30 years before breaking up in 2001. The song also peaked at No. 23 on the Hot Soul Singles chart and No. 18 on the Easy Listening chart. Billboard ranked it as the No. 11 best-selling song of 1976. On the R&R Airplay chart, the song debuted at No. 38 on April 2, 1976, and peaked at No. 7 seven weeks later. The single earned a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album Daryl Hall & John Oates was moving slowly on Billboard's chart until "Sara Smile" started becoming a hit. The album picked up momentum to hit number 17 on the Billboard 200, peaking simultaneously with "Sara Smile" on June 25, 1976.
