by Night Ranger
Released: Jan 1983
Changing the world forever in 1983, Midnight Madness features the timeless, archetypal power ballad "Sister Christian." Up there with Styx's "Come Sail Away" and REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Lovin' You," the song is the sort of earnestly rocking radio gem that simply cannot be produced in these self-conscious times. There are other songs on here that fans of Night Ranger will remember air-guitaring to when they were 12 ("Touch of Madness"); "When You Close Your Eyes" is hands down the band's second-best song, but, let's face it, you come back to this for "Sister Christian."
