Since I’m one of maybe 40 people who watch CBS Sunday Morning, I felt I needed to pass this along to you.
I have always been a huge fan of Journey, and as I have aged, my love for them has only grown. They have been the victims of much music snobbery over the years, most of it quite unfair. These are top-notch songrwriters and musicians who understand phrasing and narrative. Yes, they are catchy pop tunes. But not every great opus has to be sung in a manner that makes the singer sound like he’s coming off a three-day bout of constipation, with morbid lyrics and morose chord progressions.
And, this new version of Journey?
Watch this till the end – it’s an amazing story.
If I can’t have them with Steve Perry, I’ll take them with Arnel Pinetta. I will run out and buy this CD this weekend.
