Don't Fight It by Kenny Loggins

Album: High AdventureReleased: 1982Charted:
17
  • This was one of Kenny Loggins' first melodic style tunes, and it featured Steve Perry in one of his first non-Jouney outings. The two co-wrote it with Dean Pitchford, who would go on to write "Footloose" with Loggins, which was a huge deal because the promise of Loggins doing the theme song helped Pitchford get his screenplay for Footloose made into a movie. Kenny has since sung "Don't Fight It" solo in his concerts. (thanks, Sara - Silver Spring, MD)
  • Asked about the cracking whip sound in an interview with the St. Petersburg Times, Loggins said, "The bullwhip is from the locker where they kept the Indiana Jones soundtrack sounds. We snuck in there and we got the bullwhip and we sampled it."
