Any Night Ranger fans here?

 

As you know, "Sister Christian" was the most "well known" or most popular of the two...

But my personal favorite Night Ranger ballad has always been, "When You Close Your Eyes"!

I love it...so that one takes it for me!

 

Which one is your favorite?

I don't even remotely like 'Sister Christian' and 'When you close your eyes' is by far my favourite track off that disc.

 

But 'Forever all over again' defeats both. :)

Backed on both counts. I even prefer some of their other ballads ("Goodbye", "I Did It For Love", "Sentimental Street", "Restless Kind") to these two. Though it's always a fine line assessing what actually is a ballad with Night Ranger as their tunes are all so mid/low tempo...

Like TIM, I also prefer 'Goodbye' and 'Sentimental Street', but these are still 2 great ballads.Like a few others, I have heard 'Sister Christian' so many times, I voted for 'When You Close Your Eyes' instead.

I actually prefer When I Call On You over any of the others - although Sentimental Street and Goodbye are top notch as well. I'd listen to When You Close Your Eyes any day before that overplayed/overhyped/heard-it-a-million-times/they-do-have-OTHER-songs, you-know? Sister Christian. I'd rate The Night Has A Way and Music Box from Feeding Off The Mojo miles above it, too. Of course, to the casual observer, that album gets ignored because Jack Blades and Jeff Watson ain't on it, which is a mindless reason for ignoring it in the first place. Strange how something as peaceful as a ballad can get me off on a rant.

When You Close Your Eyes over Sister Christian, both great songs :tumbsup:

 

Sentimental Street is the ultimate for me and I love - Fool In Me :bowdown::bowdown:

I will go off the board and choose the touchingly sentimental song "Eddie's Comin' Out Tonight". That song always makes me cry...

 

:P

'When You Close Your Eyes' on this list even if "Sentimental street" is my fave ballad from the band.

I actuallly do like "Sister Christian," even if it's just a teensy weensy little bit overplayed, and that's the song I voted for in this poll. But Geoff is very much correct in his assertion that "Forever all Over Again" is Night Ranger's all-time best ballad.

No he isn't.

Like I care about the opinion of a talentless guitar hack.

I think you will find that in this case, I am very correct.

Aren't you that guy who thought there was a sound issue with Trixter's 'Hear!'

 

In which case, my point is proven. I am correct. ;)

Exactly...since I'm the only one who can hear properly (the terrible sounding Hear cd)...I'm right ;)

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
