I had to feature this song/group for today’s KOOL Kollective, because I heard they will be in concert at Wild Horse Pass and I love them! Night Ranger is a “hair band” (rock band) from the 80’s whom had such hits as “When You Close Your Eyes,” “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” and their big hit, “Sister Christian.”
Although “Sister Christian” was the bigger hit for them – peaking at #5 in the Billboard Hot 100, I’m gonna feature “When You Close Your Eyes,” because is MY favorite! :0)
This power-ballad only reached #14 on the Hot 100 and released in 1984 from their Midnight Madness album. The video is cute and shows one of the band members and his high school sweetheart breaking up and in the future, she ends up in a lame marriage with a handful of kids and seems miserable. She is seen reminiscing about her high school love and wonders, “what if”?
They’ll be performing at Wild Horse Pass on July 7, so get your tickets and stay tuned to 94.5 KOOL FM for any giveaways! xoxo
