“Whenever I Call You ‘Friend'” is a song written by Kenny Loggins and Melissa Manchester, which Loggins recorded as a duet with Stevie Nicks for his 1978 album Nightwatch.  “Kenny and I kept meeting each other at award shows, and he asked if I wanted to write with him, and we met up and we knocked it out. It was great. As a writer, he knows what he wants. I’d rather be in a room with someone like that than not.”

When first released, Stevie Nicks was not credited on the original 45 single, so this was officially considered Loggins’s first solo Top-40 hit. Position on the Billboard Hot 100: #5
