When the lights go down in the city...

...and the sun shines on the bay
Oh I want to be there in my city...


Alright so I just watched Journey on Oprah today.* So naturally, I've been listening to Journey (Steve's Journey and Arnel's Journey) for the past hour while working on homework.

I love this song... it makes me really want to go back to San Francisco. According to my parents, when my family & I were there one summer when I was young on one of our road trips, I cried when we had to drive away. I want to go back sometime soon!
So, here's "Lights" with Arnel. Close your eyes, and it's Steve Perry. Minus the HUGE ego, of course.

So I was thinking about having a guest post on Fridays. It would be a time for you, my reader, to get a chance to tell a story on my blog. It can be about a concert, an artist, an album, a life-changing music experience... basically anything you want that's related to music in some way. What do you think? Who would be interested? I love hearing everyone's stories - especially anything in the '70s and '80s since I feel I got completely gypped on those decades. Anyway, let me know your thoughts!!

*No, I don't watch Oprah on a regular basis -- this was an exception.

I've got the latest Journey album Revelation on disc. It features Pinera on the vocals. It's not bad at all, but it isn't just the same as having Steve Perry in it. That's just my thought.

Guest blogging, A great idea!

I think its a great idea to have a guest on Fridays. I can't listen to Journey often, I love it but it makes me sad...too many memories.

Wow! Arnel's story is amazing -- talk about rags to riches. I'm glad he's with Journey. He has revitalized the band.

Not a huge Journey fan but I'm a recent convert to your blog. I wandered over from Layla's. I've added you to my blogroll @ http://dufusdownbeat.blogspot.com/ Keep up the great work and rock on!

Another song about the SF Bay area that I love love love (actually more than Journey's Lights) is Tower of Power's Below Us All the City Lights from their 1974 album Back to Oakland.
