Before Batman and Robin, before Ace and Gary and even before Green Hornet and Kato (okay maybe a little bit after), there was Loggins and Messina. For the unfamiliar and unaware, the demise of this pair of superhero smoothists was an unfortunate result of battling egos rivaling those of Napoleanic times.
Before they were divorced of each other’s smoothness, they were The Best of Friends. Often described as an “accidental duo”, no one can deny the magic that these two innovators created. Here is perhaps the most famous song from that same album. Enjoy the hug and tug times!
Look out for the return of this accidental duo in 2009! Check out the Loggins and Messina website for Tour dates.

A match made in heaven: Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry make all your troubles go away.
Some people when they hear a groove
Shake their heads ’cause they just can’t approve
Well, I turn up the music till it’s
shakin’ the sky
Is everybody ready to move?
Seriously, don’t fight it. It’ll do your heart so good.

Hello Smooth Music fans
For my 1st ever post on this site, i would like to to recall the penultimate (second last) episode of Yacht Rock where Gene Balboa says sarcastically “have fun at pooh con”.
I later found out that one of the big reasons for that reference was the following song by Loggins and Messina from their first album together (Sittin’ In 1971)
Enjoy the following performance.

Holy Shit an 11th Episode!! Jimmy Buffett kidnaps and tricks Kenny Loggins into writing a hit single for the movie Footloose, while Michael McDonald and James Ingram help cut him loose with a bunch of machetes. “It’s mellow, not smooth… kinda shitty.”
Yah Mo B There.

A total classic, Yatch Rock hit! Arguably Loggins’ greatest, smoothest and by far his most empassioned moment in music.
The firey passion heard here is ignited by Loggins’ only true love (only… after Really Smooth Music), his wife, Julia Loggins. A quote from their jointly written book, THE UNIMAGINABLE LIFE: LESSONS LEARNED ON THE PATH TO LOVE (Avon).
Kenny & Julia explore the world of “conscious relationship”, passion, connection and the challenge of learning how to love on the highest possible plane.
That smooth bastard!
Behold… this is it!
