SONGS I LIKE BY ARTISTS I DON’T- ‘DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’- JOURNEY

Songs I like- by Artists I Don’t- “Don’t Stop Belevin’-Journey. Blame The Sopranos- Tony Soprano was possibly the greatest character in the history of television but his taste in music at times was kind of questionable. In the final moments of the final episode of series- as Tony and his family gathered at a restaurant and Tony played- Don’t Stop Believin’ on the jukebox. . At first former Journey singer Steve Perry was reluctant to let the song go on The Sopranos- but he certainly make the right call. Journey had a total of seventeen Top 40 hits from the late 70’s to the mid-80’s and they were all over the radio at the time. I heard them all. The only one that I kind of liked was Don’t Stop Believin’- which went to #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1981. It originally wasn’t a hit in the UK but  was re-released in 2009 there and went up to #6.  Thanks I believe to The Sopranos- the song is the best selling digital 20th century track. Mike DeGagne as allmusic has called Don’t Stop Believin’- the perfect rock song. I don’t know if I would go that far but I will admit it is a great tune.

  1. I may be outnumbered here, but I actually not only like this song but also Journey.:-)

    My favorites are “Wheel In The Sky” and “Lights.” Neal Schon is a pretty good guitarist, and Steve Perry was an incredible vocalist. There is hardly anyone else who can or could hit these high notes.

  2. I don’t like Journey either…I would probably go Wheel In The Sky but this did fit the ending of the Sopranos…can’t argue with that.

  3. I love Journey. I’ve met the band. Neal Schon is a shy, small guy. He’s smaller than Phil Collen of DL.

    On that album, Stone In Love is better. And, thank GOD you didn’t prefer Open Arms! 🤮
