Journey ~ Tuesday Tunes

I have always been one to listen to music.  I remember, as a little girl, playing this particular Disneyland record over and over listening to Knick Knack Paddy Whack and It’s a Small World.

When I was in Junior High, I remember listening to Journey, Loverboy, and REO Speedwagon over and over on my Sony Walkman.

Seeing Journey at the Rose Bowl on July 2, 1982 when I was only 12 years old will be a day that I will never forget! I remember there were so many people there on that hot summer day in Southern California.

So for my very first Tuesday Tunes, I will have to go with some tunes from Journey. There is just something special about Steve Perry’s voice that was so soothing and comforting back in the 80′s.  I am one of those diehard fans that just believes that there is only one Steve Perry.  No one can come close to his voice.  He is irreplaceable.  Since I don’t think or expect that he will ever come back on stage, I will have to forever remember seeing him at the Rose Bowl and then the following year at the Forum with Bryan Adams on August 5, 1983.

  1. I would love to have been able to see the Original Sublime and Nirvana. Thanks for linking up and sharing! LOVE these!

  2. I wished I would have gone to a Michael Jackson concert! I always loved & bought his music, but never went to a concert. I also love Journey and I didn’ t see them live. REO was my first concert, followed by Styx!

  3. Although my children tell me that I’m not old thinking of all the music I listened to as a teenager and what has happened to music in the last 30+ years is sad. We went from having Frank Sinatra to Justin Bieber? Seriously?
