Kenny Loggins Featured On 80’s At 8 With “I’m Alright” [VIDEO]
The good ol’ days of ‘Loggins and Messina’ were good ones but Kenny struck gold when the solo career began.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the movie, “Caddyshack”, the song, “I’m Alright plays at the beggining and the end of the film. He actually got to see pre-edited version of the film before he wrote the song.
Overall it’s essentially about a gopher versus human (Bill Murray) as Bill blows up the golf course trying to kill the gopher. After every blast the gopher pops up out of the holes and dances to the song.
If you hear ‘Eddie Money’ in the background, you’re right he happened to be in a studio around the corner and provided the line, “You Make me Feel Good”.
I guess once you go Caddyshack you never go back, as Kenny did, “Nobody’s Fool” for Caddyshack II.
it almost seemed for awhile that Kenny was becoming the soundtrack guy in some capacity, ‘Top Gun’, FootLoose, Winnie The Pooh,. He even had his song, “This Is It” used for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournamenet in 1980 & ’81.
