Song of the Day: Karla Bonoff, “Personally”

A very happy 71st birthday to singer-songwriter Karla Bonoff. She’s not an artist with whom I’m all that familiar; I’ve seen her name and her music come up on a number of other blogs, but had never really heard her except for her biggest hit, "Personally," which reached #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #19 on the Hot 100 in 1982. Looks like I have some catching up to do…

  1. My wife is a big fan of Karla Bonoff. We saw her perform at a small venue in Boston back in the 70s. She wrote a lot of great songs recorded by other female artists.

  2. I’m in the same spot, I recall reading the name as she wrote songs for several artists but I don’t remember this great tune! I thought it was Kenny Loggins in the video, turns out it’s Andrew Gold- they sort of looked a bit alike back then…maybe sort of?

      1. I really don’t recall it at all but she’s a talent. Guess the record executives were more interested in her writing. Of course who could compete with the likes of Lind Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt.
