Song of the Day: Dave Loggins, “Please Come To Boston”

Dave is a second cousin to Kenny, and had just this one hit, which he wrote. It reached #5 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Easy Listening chart in the US, and #4 on the RPM Hot Singles Chart and #2 on the RPM Adult Contemporary chart in 1974, and it was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Male Performance in 1975 (which was won by Stevie Wonder for Fulfillingness’ First Finale). Dave has had considerable success as a songwriter, having written “Pieces of April” for Three Dog Night, “Morning Desire” for Kenny Rogers, and “You Make Me want To Make You Mine” for Juice Newton, among others. He did a duet with Anne Murray in 1984, “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do,” which went to #1 on the Hot Country Singles chart and earned him and Anne a CMA award for Vocal Duo of the Year.
