Peaking at #7 in America, Nightwatch is Loggins' highest-charting studio album.
This was covered by Al Jarreau in 1978, Patti Austin in 1979, and the jazz/pop singer Suede in 1988.
Loggins performed in the pop-rock duo Loggins & Messina (with Jim Messina of Buffalo Springfield and Poco) from the early to mid-'70s. Jon Clarke, a woodwind player who performed on all six of the duo's studio releases, also played the flute solo on "Wait A Little While."
Mavis from Upper MidwestI love this tune, but thought it was popular a few years later. Donna is correct: It is a gem.
Donna from Ft. Lauderdale, FlA simple soft rock melody that takes me back to my college years. Got decent airplay at the time but remains under-appreciated. Almost like a hidden gem. Same goes for Keep the Fire - why isn't that one listed here?
"Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man deals with lead singer John Gourley becoming a "rebel just for kicks" after having a daughter and settling down. "It's hard to be a punk when you're thinking about your baby daughter at home," he says.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
