This song is the epitome of effervescence. During the late 60s, 70s and 80s, Kenny Loggins went through many incarnations, from country rock to super pop. But, no song defines him better than this lively tune that wasn't one of his biggest hits, but certainly exemplifies the eternal optimism evident in most of his songs.
The song is so catchy that even Barbra Streisand took note and used it in A Star is Born. She had just as much fun with the song as Loggins did. The lyrics are simple, the message heartfelt. Love should be associated with feeling good, and this song is a snug fit in the feel-good 70s decade.
