Listening to my iTunes on random tonight after updaing to OS X 10.4.7…. I realized that there’s an 80’s artist that I REALLY like but never really admitted it before… Maybe “admitted it” isn’t the right phrase, but I just didn’t realize how much I liked this guy.

Kenny Loggins. OK, he’s not specifically an 80’s artist, in fact, Loggins and Messina started back in the 70’s… but my GOD this man has made some great songs! I mean everyone knows “Danger Zone” from Top Gun, and “I’m Alright” from CaddyShack, and “Footloose” from… well… Footloose! But think about it, “Whenever I call you Friend” with Stevie Nicks; “This is It” with Michael McDonald singing backup; “Meet me half Way;” and if there was EVER a better “power ballad” than “Forever,” I’ve not heard it!

I’ve got a friend who knows Kenny personally, and I’ve really got to thank HER for kind of opening my eyes to Kenny’s music again. She’s going to California next week to see him live at the California Bowl, too… have fun Stacy!!

–From Danny’s Song–

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup, drink it up,
Love her and she’ll bring you luck.
And if you find she helps your mind, buddy, take her home,
Don’t you live alone, try to earn what lovers own.
