KCMW Tells The Story Behind Their Songs: “Let Go Tonight (Featuring Nena)”
Sometimes men and women allow the smallest things – the things which should matter the least – matter the most. As a result, they miss the opportunity to really love each other.
This song is about trying to break that pattern – seizing the moment, letting go of doubts, and following your heart. Nena is a great artist. She brings a subtle but passionate artistry to this song. She and John go way back—she recorded a song of his with her old band The Stripes in 1980. Life brings us full circle sometimes in surprising and exciting ways.
