Members of Night Ranger, in a VH-1 Behind the Music episode in which they were featured, said that the term "Motoring" used in the song's lyrics- "You're motoring. What's your price for flight? In finding Mr. Right?"- refers both to driving around in a car (as in "Cruising the 'vard" where I come from) and to picking someone up for casual sex. The song was written by the band's drummer, Kelly Keagy, who had heard that his younger sister had done the latter. Indeed, what's the price for flight? I think Sister Christian is the perfect traditio given the subject of my posting this week and looking forward to one I have on tap for the beginning of next week.
Indeed, "There's so much in life Don't you give it up
Before your time is due."
