House at Pooh Corner by Loggins & Messina

Album: Sittin' InReleased: 1972
  • This was one of the first songs Kenny Loggins wrote while in high school. As a staff writer for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band he gave it to them and they had a minor single with it. It was released on their 1970 album Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy.
  • Along with "Danny's Song," this was the tune that inspired Jim Messina to produce what was to be Loggins' first solo outing, but Messina ended up writing several songs for the album and Sittin' In became the first release for Loggins & Messina. Jim Messina was a member of the group Poco before joining CBS as a staff producer.
  • Years later when his third son was born, Loggins rewrote this as "Return To Pooh Corner." (thanks, Sara - Silver Spring, MD, for all above)
  • The House At Pooh Corner is a popular children's book by A. A. Milne following the adventures of his character Winnie The Pooh. The song is based on this book.

This song is amazing, deffinate favourite of mine when growing up!Troy - East Greenwich, Ri
Kenny also did a song for Disney's "The Tigger Movie" co-written with Richard and Robert Sherman
who did the songs for the original Pooh cartoons.
In concert he always gets the audience to sing
along with.

Loved this song growing up.Ben - Chelsea, Me
For those of us raised on the delightful Winnie-the-Pooh (before it was bastardized by Walt Disney), Loggins did a masterful job of capturing with wistful gentleness of Pooh's and Christopher Robin's world. Bringing it full circle by Returning to Pooh Corner as an adult with a child was a stroke of genius!Guy - Woodinville, Wa
