Close My Eyes Forever by Lita Ford w/Ozzy Osbourne

vs

Don't Close Your Eyes by Kix

Both hit the charts in 89 with Lita/Ozzy reaching #8 and Hagerstown Maryland's finest reaching #11

Very tough tough call both ballads. Lita/Ozzy wins just barely for me but I could be persuaded to go the other way.

I like both but Lita and Ozzy win.

Dokken also did "Don't close your eyes"...I like that better than both of these.

Whew! And I thought this was going to be a discussion of the much overhyped Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman movie directed (for the last time) by Stanley Kubrick!

Can't understand what Kubrick saw in the material to warrant a film out of it.

A tough one, but I'm going to go with Ozzy and Lita, it was so cool when those two hooked up to do that song.

I like that Kix song a lot too, an underrated band, do they have a best of?

Easy one for me, definitely "Close My Eyes Forever" by Lita Ford w/Ozzy. I must have watched Lita's "Kiss Me Deadly" at least 100 times on MTV back in the day.

They sure do. Some pretty good songs too. You can buy it on Amazon.com and listen to the samples as well:
