Five on Friday - The Dan Seals Version

Reaching into the past a bit for Travis' Five on Friday  meme this week, I thought I'd feature five songs from a man whose voice I always liked regardless of whether he was singing as the "England Dan" half of the soft rock duo England Dan and John Ford Coley who were around from 1976 to 1980 or as himself when he launched a solo career in country music that netted him eleven Number One singles on the country charts.  Not a bad accomplishment for a guy who always sounded more soft rock than he did country in my own humble opinion!

Sadly, Dan Seals contracted Mantle Cell Lymphoma which is one of the rarest of the non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas and died at the age of 61 following radiation treatments and a stem cell transplant. Though his time here on earth ended much too soon, Dan left behind some great music for people to continue to enjoy and I hope you'll do just that with the five songs below!


  1. Always loved both All That Glitters and Meet Me In Montana. He had such a beautiful voice.

  2. Well, I never would have heard any of these on my own, as the country factor was rather high, but I did enjoy Everything That Glitters is Not Gold.

  3. I don't think I've heard any of these before. Although not a big country girl, I enjoyed them all. Last four that is - as the first one for some reason did not play for me...
    Happy Easter, Linda!

  4. I always thought he had cross over appeal. His voice fits in both country and pop.

  5. What a smooth voice. Rich like honey.

  6. I do likey...a lot! Didn't know he had died. How sad! Too young.

    Big hugs, honey...


Thanks for visiting!
