"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. The song also has accompanying music video, and Kenny Loggins shaved off all of his trademark facial hair for the video. He can be seen clean shaven in the music video.

Cover versions[edit]

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