"For the First Time" is a 1996 song from the 1996 film One Fine Day starring Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney with music and lyrics by James Newton Howard, Jud J. Friedman, and Allan Dennis Rich and performed by Kenny Loggins. The song was included in the soundtrack of the film and was Loggins' one and only number one hit on the Adult Contemporary chart. "For the First Time" spent two weeks at number one and peaked at number sixty on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.[1] "For the First Time" did not make the Billboard Hot 100 chart as it was not made available as a commercial single, which at that time made it ineligible to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. "For the First Time" was nominated for the Best Original Song.

Music video[edit]

The song's accompanying music video, shows Loggins singing the song in a giant manor house and an empty theater on a rainy night, interspliced with scenes from the movie. It ends with Loggins walking down a street in heavy rain. This is the first Kenny Loggins video to feature Loggins without his trademark facial hair (as he shaved them in the 1990s).

Cover versions[edit]

In 2008, KC Concepcion sang her version of the song from the movie of the same title released by Star Cinema with her co-star Richard Gutierrez.
