Heart of Mine by Boz Scaggs

Born William Royce Scaggs in Ohio on June 8, 1944, he was raised in Oklahoma and Texas, and while attending prep school in Dallas met guitarist Steve Miller. After joining Miller's group the Marksmen as a vocalist in 1959, the pair later attended the University of Wisconsin together, playing in blues bands like the Ardells and the Fabulous Knight Trains. One of the famous American singer, songwriter and guitarist during the 70's, he gained fame with several Top 20 hits in the United States.

In 1976, he linked up with other musicians who would later form Toto and recorded his smash album Silk Degrees. The album reached number 2 on the U.S. charts with the hit singles "Lowdown", "Lido Shuffle", and "What Can I Say", as well as "We're All Alone", later covered by Rita Coolidge and Frankie Valli.

In 1988 , Scaggs "Heart of Mine" from Other Roads was one of his final top 40 hit and considered as a major adult contemporary success. This will be my latest choice as our song of the day:
