" Heartbreak Station"

"Shelter Me" was the lead single from Cinderella's third album, Heartbreak Station. It peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lyrics reflect the human need for respite from the daily stressors in life and cautions about taking whatever one chooses to indulge to excess. The line "some people wave the Bible 'cause it's giving them a thrill" addresses the then-current atmosphere of religious conservatism that threatened to smother the music industry.

Unusual for the band, this song forgoes any notable lead guitar in favor of a horn section and a saxophone solo.
