In the early to mid 1970's a singer named Lobo had several pop music hits, songs that catapulted him to the top of the pop and adult contemporary music charts.

The songs seemed simple enough, mostly dealing with the ever present musical subject of love, both gained and lost.  Gentle, often plaintive, the songs touched a chord with people around the world.

Are they classic country hit's?  Nope.  But they didn't seem far off, and for a lot of us, we could listen to Buck Owens, Charley Pride, Conway Twitty and Lobo without a problem.

Lobo's biggest single was 'Me and You and a Dog Named Boo'.  Infectious? Yep!  You couldn't help but sing along, and in fact it was a Top 10 country hit for Stonewall Jackson in 1971.

 

You might compare Lobo to John Denver, or maybe the pop band Bread.

Here's one of his huge pop hits 'I'd Love You To Want Me'....and doesn't it feel like it's almost Classic Country?
