Song of the Day: Steve Miller Band – “Serenade”

Happy birthday wishes go out to Steve Miller, who turns 74 years old today. This is a cool track written by Miller and Chris McCarthy that originally appeared on the 1976 Fly Like an Eagle album. It might be overshadowed a bit by the other hits on the album (the title track, “Take the Money and Run”, “Rock’n Me”) but it’s definitely a track that deserves more love. “The lyrics of this song – presuming that Steve Miller had a prominent hand in crafting them – may derive from a time in Miller’s life after he had a bit of hardship and gained new perspective,” says Pop History Dig, “although co-writer Chris McCarty was also involved with this song.”
