What a Fool Believes

What a Fool Believes


I’m a fool.

A fool who believes.

A fool to write every single day.

But I'll always believe.

I believe in you.

I believe in the power of community.

I believe in one good song.

Take What a Fool Believes.

Written by Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. 

Recorded by The Doobie Brothers. 

The song received Grammy Awards in 1980 for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year.

“What a Fool Believes” was one of the few non-disco No. 1 hits that summer.

From Wiki: “The song lyrics tell a story of a man who is reunited with an old love interest and attempts to rekindle a romantic relationship with her before discovering that one never really existed.”

The Doobies believed.

I believe too.

I believe these notes are good for us, you and me.

I believe in love.

I believe that love works.

It just works.

Believe me.

Be a fool in love.

A fool who believes.

Microstep: Be zany today. Play a silly game. Be a fool in love. A fool who believes in the power of connection and community.
