Dan Seals 1948-2009

Friday, April 10, 2009

As I was looking through my emails and such from the past weeks, as I got toward the end I found a news piece that stopped me. Dan Seals died on March 25, 2009 at the age of 61 years old from lymphoma.

Shortly after high school years, I found his album "In A Quiet Room" that to this day is still one of my favorite albums. I can remember singing all the songs on that CD over and over. The album is an acoustic styled album from Seals. It includes a lot of his hits such as "Bop," "Big Wheels in the Moonlight," "Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)" and "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" (which was a pop hit for him as a member of a pop duo.

I will miss him for sure, but never will forget his music, that is for sure. I'm sure some of you have not heard his name before, but I imagine at some point you have heard his music, especially "Bop" that he won a CMA for in 1986, as well as his other number one hits. If you still don't remember him, I certainly suggest you seek his music out and enjoy what you hear.

Feel free to leave your thoughts on Dan Seals on the blog and take a moment to listen to his great talents in memory of this wonderful artist. Below, you will find an Amazon player to listen to clips.

Dan Seals, dead at age 61.
