Recording information by XXsmurfetteXXGOLD

Hold the Line" is a song by the American rock band Toto. The song was written by the band's keyboardist David Paich, and the lead vocals were performed by Bobby Kimball. The song was released as the band's debut single, and was featured on their debut 1978 eponymous album. The song was a huge success in the U.S.; it reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the winter of 1978–79, and number 14 on the official UK chart.

I can't really tell you why this song is special, I just know that whenever I hear this I get lost in the song and just for a while I'm transported back to being a teenager rocking out to this in my bedroom. I remember my mum shouting up the stairs telling me to keep it down as she couldn't hear the tv above the din coming from my bedroom lol. Some days
I would love to be back there in my bedroom with no worries about if my kids are ok, if I have enough money to pay bills or where the next meal is coming from.

Your story took me back to my childhood when my mother would yell out at me, 'Quit thowing that ball at the steps - it's hits the door. My mom was so right as it was a time when I thought of only myself. Love the way you have presented this song and your song choice. Hope you enjoyed the journey and please have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, happy New Year! And wow, I was first in line for this I think. What a treat!
