The Greatest Song from the Best Band of the '80s

I know there are many in the arts and croissant crowd who cringe when they hear the name Journey. Well, I'm not one of them. I grew up with this band and I still love to listen to them and, judging from the number of views of its songs on YouTube, so do many of you. That's not an accident (and it's even less so that David Chase chose a Journey song for his show's finale). Back in the day, Journey produced great (even if somewhat formulaic) music, and it was sung by a vocalist that appealed to anyone who appreciated the beauty of his hypnotic voice. For those of you under 25, this is what you missed listening to everyday in your childhood. Without further ado, this is Journey's Mother, Father (from the Escape album).
