Song Lyric Sunday – “Hold Me Now” – Thompson Twins

Night Ranger’s drummer, Kelly Keagy wrote the song about his sister who was coming of age. Keagy’s sister, Christy was 10 years younger than him and was growing up fast. The lead singer, Jack Blades sang lead vocals on most songs for the band, but Keagy sang the lead on this one from his drums. The original song title was “Sister Christy” but the band thought Keagy was singing “Sister Christian” so that became the title.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Hello, Goodbye”
