KMRS Song of the Day: The Doobie Brothers – What A Fool Believes 27 Feb 15

Today’s Song of the Day is What A Fool Believes by The Doobie Brothers.

“What A Fool Believes” by the Doobie Brothers won the Record and Song of the Year Grammy Awards. It was the groups 2nd #1 song. It debuted on the pop charts on February 10, 1979 and hit #1 on April 14. ”What a Fool Believes” was one of the few non-disco No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 during 1979.

Michael Jackson contributed at least one backing track to the original Doobie Brothers recording, but was not credited for having done so.
