Written by Bill Champlin & Kenny Loggins

Bill Champlin’s sophomore solo effort, Runaway, was released in 1981. David Foster was again in the producer’s seat. Together, the two friends crafted a well-dosed collection of pop/rock numbers and refined ballads. Despite its strong potential, Runaway didn’t do much on the charts with just a four week stay on the Billboard Top 200, eventually peaking at #178. The album spawned a couple of minor hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 with two gorgeous ballads, “Tonight, Tonight” and “Sara.” Both songs were perfectly arranged melodic masterpieces that deserved more attention given their radio-friendly appeal.
