|Celebrating Neko's birthday with her update of Anne Murray's 1972 hit Danny's Song written by Kenny Loggins.|
Check out Anne's original studio version after listening to Neko's update below. Right after that, you can hear a live yacht rock version by Kenny Loggins from 1981 where he reveals the origin of Danny's Song, a tune first recorded and released by his band Gator Creek – coincidentally, right around the time Neko was born in 1970.
Neko does such a swell job with Danny's Song, it makes you wonder whether she has plans to cover more smooth classics like say, Sailing by Christopher Cross, What A Fool Believes by the Doobie Brothers or Time Out Of Mind by Steely Dan. And knowing that way back in 2007, the New Pornographers ran a contest around the release of the Challengers album, asking fans to come up with yacht rock-inspired covers of their songs, it's entirely possible that a Neko Case Sings Your Yacht Rock Faves album has been considered, if not already in the works. Here's hoping it's on the way!
