Kenny Loggins, 'Conviction of the Heart'
Easy listening's favorite lumberjack turns his commitment issues on Mother Nature, lamenting, "I've never given love/with any conviction of the heart." And this seems true; when the single was released (on 1991's Leap of Faith), Loggins didn't even have the conviction to dye his hair and beard the same color. This soft-rock rally was as vaguely narrated as its was successful; Loggins talks sweepingly of "air that's too angry to breathe, water our children can't drink," but Al Gore has said that he loves the song, so there's that.
