    Default Song stuck in my head: HELP!

    I've been looking all day for a classic rock song I heard on the radio... I'll try and paint the audio the best I can.

    The only lyrics I can remember are the chorus, which are:
    "Hold on...Baby, hold on..." with a chorus or bunch of backing singers behind him. It is repeated numberous times throughout the song.
    It sounds very 'epic-like' - very Moody Blues-ish, ala Knights in White Satin.
    There is a very prevalent flute during the solo, which follows the bass line. It is a slow and very bluesy song. Definately not .38 Special.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Sorry I can't help, but the best Hold On song I know is Hold On by Triumph, which is epic-like in it's own right. Great guitar, great song, and some of the best lyrics you'll find. Rik Emmett at his finest.

    You know, I get a huge smile on my face whenever I hear someone talking about the Jonas Bros. Mainly because I know my older two are listening to VH, AC/DC, Floyd and the like. My oldest calls them the Jonesin' Ass Bros...I know, language, but considering what he's speaking of, I let it slide.

    Indeed!
    I went to "Meet the Teacher" night last evening.
    All the kids have these little posters hanging from the front of their desks that they made for themselves to tell their teacher and new classrooms something about themselves.
    Most of the kids had some sort of Hannah Montana and Jonas Bros. shit.
    My boy had hand drawn the Edmonton Oilers and Van Halen logos in big letters and bright colors.

    Did his old man proud again.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
    -H.S.T

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    Pretty damn good song to have stuck in your head! The song stuck in my head most days is the one that has the best chance of driving a person mad.

    I love the part in the song, at about the 3:28 mark, where he says, "I've got to talk to you baby!", especially the way his voice cracks a little when he says the word, "Talk". Goosebumps, man, goosebumps.
