Hold Me is the fourth studio album by American singer Laura Branigan, released in 1985 on Atlantic Records.
The lead single from Branigan's fourth album, "Spanish Eddie", was her sixth top 40 hit in two and a half years, although it failed to enter the top 20. A splashy video featuring a newly svelte Branigan was a hit on the various music video programs of the day (NBC's Friday Night Videos, TBS' Night Tracks and USA's Night Flight among the biggest), but it was not picked up by MTV. The following single release, "Hold Me", was a top 40 dance hit and her introduction of the rock ballad "I Found Someone" (co-written by Michael Bolton) reached even higher on the AC chart, but neither song was supported by a music video, and they stayed in the lower reaches of the pop charts.
The track "When the Heat Hits the Streets" was heard in a television advertising campaign for the Chrysler Laser, Chrysler being a sponsor for Branigan's 1985-86 "Hold Me" tour (a Chrysler Laser was prominently displayed in the "Spanish Eddie" video). Despite the weak sales, the album has many of her fan-favourite songs
