"Hold On" is the third track from Badfinger's 1981 album Say No More. Co-written by Tom Evans and Joe Tansin (who had actually left the bad prior to the recording of Say No More), the track was their second to last new single (the last being "I Got You", also from Say No More).

Release and Reception

"Hold On" was first released in 1981 on Say No More. However, that same year, the song was released as a single in America, (the first from Say No More) backed with the Joey Molland-written song, "Passin' Time". It was Badfinger's final charting single (and highest charting since "Baby Blue"), reaching #56 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #67 on Cashbox.[1] Its follow-up, "I Got You", didn't chart.

AllMusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine described the track as "a shadow of former glories".[2]
