Kenny Loggins released his debut solo album in 1977. He had already charmed the world with hits like “House At Pooh Corner”, “Your Mama Don’t Dance”, “Danny’s Song” and others during his years partnered with Jim Messina. But Loggins had many more songs to write & sing on his own including today’s from his first record 44 years ago. It has become a seasonal favorite despite having to struggle to find it on the radio each year amongst the tunes that are played several times a day.
I can listen to today’s pick all month long & not come close to getting tired of it. It may only mention the holidays once in the lyrics but going home for them, even in the figurative sense by honoring the people & the traditions we love, is a journey most of us take this time of year whether we want to or not. And as bittersweet as our memories may be, going home should be celebrated just like the song says.
“Whenever I find myself too all alone,
I can make believe I’ve never gone,
I never know where I belong,
Sing me home“.
