I’ll be sharing one of my favorite Power Ballads, each day on Facebook and on this blog, from now until February 14th. I think of these songs as the Valentine’s Day equivalent of Christmas Carols. I call it A Fortnight From The Heart.
Day 12: “Don’t Close Your Eyes” by Kix
These days Kix the band is even more forgotten than Kix the cereal. While they don’t get a lot radio play these days, even on classic rock stations, they were commercially successful for a brief time, mostly thanks to their album Blow My Fuse (which is a pretty straightforward innuendo). That album contained their biggest Power Ballad, “Don’t Close Your Eyes.”
