"Hold Tight" by Change

Song#:  0697
Date:  08/08/1981
Debut:  89
Peak:  89
Weeks:  2
Genre:  R&B, Dance

Pop Bits:  Although still luring folks to the dance floor, Change's second album couldn't get off the ground at pop with the lead single "Paradise" not able to get passed #80. This second single from the "Miracles" album fared even worse and spent two weeks in the #89 spot, which left the album short of the gold status that their debut reached. However, "Paradise," "Hold Tight," and another track from the album "Heaven of My Life" were combined in a mix single that reached #1 on the dance chart.

ReduxReview:  As with their previous song, this is just a nice, well-crafted dance groove that keeps you occupied but leaves your ears soon after it is done. I just find nothing on their songs that make them outstanding in any way. It's just good, danceable background music.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Credited as Jocelyn Shaw on the album, this vocalist is better known as R&B star Jocelyn Brown. She would have several R&B and dance chart hits in the mid-80s including her #2 R&B hit "Somebody Else's Guy" in 1984.
