Kenny Loggins and Pooh Corner

Kenny Loggins and Pooh Corner

If you have children, you no doubt know all about Winnie Pooh’s latest incarnations, and you probably remember him from your own childhood as well. Maybe you knew the awesome Disney Channel version of Pooh from the 1980s that featured the characters we all know and love as full-sized character best described as like Mickey Mouse at Disney World. Humans were inside the costumes and portrayed the characters, and the lovable characters also performed musical numbers in every show. 
 
Whether or not you have a long history with Pooh, your children will love the two Pooh-titled albums of Kenny Loggins. Kenny Loggins has a rather long history with Pooh himself. He first wrote the song called “House at Pooh Corner” in high school, and it was first recorded by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band before he recorded it with his own band, Loggins & Messina, in 1971. The album, “Sittin’ In,” was a big success, and the song become beloved among fans.
 
Then, over twenty years later, Kenny re-recorded that song with a new verse reflecting his own experiences with fatherhood relating to Pooh, and it was now called “Return to Pooh Corner.” In 1994, he released a children’s album featuring the song and titled the album “Return to Pooh Corner” as well. All of the songs on the album are winners. Some favorites include “Rainbow Connection” and “The Last Unicorn.” 
 
On February 8, 2000, Kenny released a follow-up album called “More Songs from Pooh Corner.” Highlights of this album include covers of “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Inch Worm,” “Flying Dreams,” and “Your Heart Will Lead You Home.” 
 
Loggins, who is now the father of five, has some of the best children’s music out there. It will please mother, father, and child. What can get better than that?
