Riff: Nino Moschella – “Holding On (In the Stars)”

Apr 24, 2014

We take this life/We take it slow/You hold on tight/I won’t let go/My hand in yours/I cant believe/You’re holding on

from Holding On lyrics by Nino Moschella

Brandishing a formidable falsetto, a Curtis Mayfield love child expresses his profound appreciation for the little things. Holding hands may seem innocuous, but for this suave crooner it’s a gesture that can mean the world. Add a gut stirring bassline and a flirty riff, and what you have is solid gold.
