The '80s brought on a new phase of Loggins' career as The Soundtrack King, with movie hits like "I'm Alright
," and "Danger Zone
." But, as Loggins told Good Morning America
in 1991, writing for a character in a movie means writing for someone else's emotions instead of your own. Leap Of Faith
, which is about falling out of love with his first wife and falling in love with his second wife, is a return to form for the singer, whose most meaningful songs have come from personal experience.
He said: "It's essential for me that I touch more deeply into who I am because I found in my career every time I really hit it on with what I'm feeling and what's happening in my life - like 'This Is It
' or 'Celebrate Me Home
' or 'Danny's Song
' - songs that really matter to me, matter the most to the people that like my music. And those are the ones that end up sort of being theme songs for me, or songs that last."
