If You Hold My Hand

I mentioned the song “Hands Free (If You Hold My Hand)” by Sonny J a while back. I thought I would share it again since the 50s b-grade horror/sci fi flick inspired video fits with my Friday the 13th theme. It’s a big song with big vocals from the amazing Donna Hightower. Sonny J claims that he sampled Donna’s 1972 single “If You Hold My Hand” but there is so much of that song in there, I think this qualifies as a remix and Donna should have got the top billing.

Anyway, here’s the clip.

As a treat, here’s Donna’s original version which is fab. They really need to release a compilation of Donna’s 70s material so people can discover this sadly overlooked talent.
