Song #145: "Don't Let Him Go"--REO Speedwagon (1981)

The one song from REO Speedwagon's massively successful "Hi Infidelity" album to make our Top 500 is, indeed, my favorite Speedwagon song of all-time.

From its drum-driven fade in beginning to the so-easy-to-sing-to chorus, it's a song that pleads for someone not to make a huge mistake, but it's done in rock n' roll mode rather than in ballad form.

It's a fantastic combination of message, energy, and urgency, from an album that produced some incredible songs, from "Tough Guys" and "Out Of Season" to "In Your Letter".

Enjoy my favorite from Kevin and the gang!
