when the most memorable moments of your career are dominated by 80's movie soundtracks, it's probably not a good sign.

I disagree with you Mel. 12 Platinum albums. they couldn't all be for movie themes! He should be nominated for his songwriting abilities alone.

are you kidding?!! Please spin the seminal Loggins & Messina album...then read who wrote most of those songs. Kenny Loggins is a brilliantly talented singer/song writer, whose songs stand the test of time. He is long overdue for recognition by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

I don't understand why so many people around here seem to hate Kenny Loggins. There's always a no vote for him almost instantaneously after a rare yes. The guy's been in the business since the early 70s with Jim Messina and then solo, writing and performing plenty of songs that are still played on the radio today. Maybe he doesn't score high in the innovation department, but tunes like I'm Alright and Footloose are what gave him the nickname "King of the Movie Soundtrack."

I think the issue with what that Twitter link suggests (IE Kenny Loggins getting consideration )is twofold:
Posted by Jim on Friday, 09.28.12 @ 22:08pm
What's wrong with Footloose, pray tell? If that don't make the house start shaking then nothing will. Anybody who claims to be into straight up American Rock & Roll and doesn't appreciate that tune has some explaining to do.

Sorry if that seemed a little harsh there Classicrocker, I was an hour removed from a rather tense incident at my old workplace, so I guess I took out my frustrations on Mr. Loggins, lol.

Well if Kenny Loggins is indeed getting nominated this year I suppose he'll be the annual left field candidate nobody saw coming.

Just imagine Kenny Loggins making the ballot and Rush and Kiss not. Oh, the carnage.

Maybe it says Kenny Loggins, but it will actually be Loggins and Messina nominated.

Roy, I watched the video. I think he doesn't believe anything by Kenny Loggins is "essential."

LOGGINS AND MESSINA
Posted by Roy on Sunday, 09.30.12 @ 08:07am
Roy- to answer your questions, I would say "yes" to both...

As far as the whole Twitter thing, I tried searching under rock_hall and Kenny Loggins was one of the artists that popped up. Maybe it was because rock_hall recently followed him. I took a look at the bands/artists that they follow and its quite a diverse array with several that are not in the Hall. You have Whitney Houston, The Cult, Kirk Franklin, among many others. Point is, don't get your hopes up. Then again, maybe I'm wrong. It would be nice to see someone Jann Wenner probably doesn't care about as a nominee anyway, right?

Roy, I wouldn't worry too much about what that condescending, arrogant, 24-karat asshole Bill Maher has to say. Anyone who laughs at his own material clearly isn't funny.

Get used to it. Your statute of limitations is up. I'm going to be the shadow to the cancer that you are to this site. I'll be a common sight in your rear view mirror from here on out.

You obviously haven't read the bulk of my comments and would prefer only to focus on the negatives. That's sad, because I have a lot of insight and knowledge to offer here. Check my comments on the following artists' pages if you think I'm bluffing:

Cheers. I'll be seeing you.

Might want to work on your reading comprehension there. You clearly didn't read the last line of my previous post. Now what part of "don't reply to me again" don't you understand?
Posted by Zach on Sunday, 10.14.12 @ 03:55am
Make that "especially a person you'll never meet in real life."

I thought he was in already. I'm totally shocked that he isn't, and that you've ranked his percentage so low.

Some of the comments regarding Kenny Loggins discography consisting mainly of movie soundtracks are way off base. His musical contributions starting from his days with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the Loggins and Messina series of platinum albums and songs he's written covered by myriad artists - from Anne Murray (Danny's Song) to Michael McDonald (What a Fool Belives) to a classic children's song, "House at Pooh Corner" qualify him long before Top Gun, Caddyshack, et al. Sorry, kids. You may not be old enough to appreciate his talent.

Kenny Loggins is much more than his soundtrack songs.
