J - Journey
I got Journey songs stuck in my head. That's right, Steve Perry and the boys are putting on a concert inside my brain and they've decided to do multiple encores. It started with the classic "Don't Stop Believin'". That inevitably led to the driving sounds of "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)". From there the concert continued into the slow section with "Faithfully" and "Open Arms". Finally, things returned to the more upbeat melodies of "Any Way You Want It" and "Wheel in the Sky". It's been a fascinating journey through the catalog of Journey.
Now, I'll admit, I like Journey. Some of their music just makes you feel good and gets your toes tapping. I even sometimes enjoy humming a Journey tune or singing along to myself as one occassionally plays in my head like my own internal Spotify soundtrack. What I don't like is Journey stuck in my brain, setting up their full stage show with guitars, amplifiers, microphones, drums, and wires everywhere. You know after that kind of setup, they don't plan to leave until they've done the full show! Oh well. I guess I'll just sit back and listen and maybe tap my toes a little. I'll try to refrain from singing along so my coworkers don't have any further proof of mental instability.
I must conclude this posting with at least an attempt at returning to the original topic. I'm reminded of a great line from the movie "Cool Runnings": Peace be the journey!
