Dan Seals: 1948 - 2009

This site is usually reserved for political commentary but I just had to pay tribute to one of my favorite singers, Dan Seals, who died on March 25 after his struggle with mantle cell lymphoma.

Seals racked up a string of big hit singles in the 1970’s as part of England Dan & John Ford Coley (pictured above) and had 11 #1 singles as a crossover country artist in the 80’s and 90’s. He was 61.

Here is a list of his most famous songs: (my personal faves in bold)

“I’d Really Love To See You Tonight”
“Nights Are Forever Without You”
“It’s Sad To Belong”
“Gone Too Far”
“We’ll Never Have To Say Goodbye Again”
“Love Is The Answer”
“Meet Me In Montana”

Here is my video tribute to Dan Seals
