“Sister Christian” is the title of a song by the American hard rock band Night Ranger. It was released in June 1984 as the second single from their album Midnight Madness. It was ranked number 32 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s. It was written and sung by the band’s drummer, Kelly Keagy, for his sister. It was the band’s biggest hit, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, and staying on the charts for 24 weeks. It also reached number-one in Canada. To this day, it is one of the most popular first dance songs at weddings. The song was also featured in the 2009 film Friday the 13th where Wade is hunting for marijuana plants.

The song is about Keagy’s little sister, Christy. Keagy wrote the song at his apartment, near Divisadero and California streets in San Francisco, after he had just returned from a visit to his hometown of Eugene, Oregon. He had been struck at how fast his teen aged sister, 10 years younger than he was, was growing up
