‘Danny’s Song’ by Loggins and Messina – Classic Hit or Miss

We Continue with Duo’s for the Hit or Miss this week!

“Danny’s Song” is the title of a song written by the American singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins. It was written as a gift for his brother Danny for the birth of his son Colin. It first appeared on the album Sittin’ In, the debut album by Loggins and Messina. The song is well remembered for both the Loggins and Messina original, as well as Anne Murray’s 1972 top-ten charting cover.

Loggins and Jim Messina released Sittin’ In in 1971, and although the album yielded no Top 40 radio hits, one song that received a significant amount of radio airplay was “Danny’s Song”. Loggins wrote the song for his brother Danny Loggins in 1970 when Danny became the father of a boy named Colin — his first son. Loggins and Messina would achieve chart success in 1973 with their song “Your Mama Don’t Dance”, but their version of “Danny’s Song” remains one of their best-known songs through frequent airplay on rock and adult contemporary radio stations.

So a hit, although it never officially charted for L+M, how about today?
