|Steve Winwood singles chronology|
"Holding On" is a 1988 single by Steve Winwood from the album Roll with It. The song was written by Winwood along with Will Jennings. "Holding On" was the last of four number ones for Winwood on the Adult Contemporary chart. The single went to number one for two weeks and peaked at number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100.
The music video (directed by David Fincher) opens with an unidentified photographer taking out camera equipment. The rest of the video is shown in motion, with flashes indicating candid snapshots of various people from different walks of life: people walking on the street, patrons of a diner, women in formal dress, a dinner suggesting an underworld boss and his girlfriend (although they pose for the camera, others cover their faces or move to leave the table), a soldier just home from the war (presumed to be World War II) embracing his son, and an elderly couple in high spirits on a park bench.
Interspersed with these images are occasional scenes of Winwood playing solitaire in his room, then going out for a walk, having his shoes shined, having coffee at a diner, then finally returning to his room and lying on his bed as the sun shines through his window.
