Seals and Crofts - Did You Know?April 29, 2019

Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about American soft rock duo, Seals and Crofts.




Seals and Crofts were an American soft rock duo that comprised of James Eugene "Jim" Seals and Darrell George "Dash" Crofts. They are best known for their hits "Summer Breeze" from 1972, "Diamond Girl" from 1973, and "Get Closer" from 1976.

The two were devoted to the Baha'i faith, and believed that by writing about life itself, many meanings would emerge for the listener. In 1975, Seals talked about the song "Summer Breeze", and said that it was a very simple song about a man coming home from work and hearing the dog barking, and to a lot of people, the song is about looking for security.

The meaning of the song, however, according to Seals and Crofts goes further than that, for a prison can be the prison of self and a person can become insecure and paranoid if he doesn't have a direction in his personal life.

The duo disbanded in 1980, reunited briefly in 1991–1992, and then again in 2004, when the two released their final album, Traces.
