Journey – Separate Ways

How about some palette cleansing action courtesy of Journey and their mega-hit, ’Separate Ways‘. 

I don’t know about you, but I consider this to be one of the absolute worst videos of all time.  Not as bad as Panic! at the Disco*, but still pretty awful.  Invisible instruments!  Many, many closeups of Steve Perry! A location that looks like it was found during a producer’s late night trolling for dock trash!  By this point in their career, Journey was one of the biggest bands in America.  And this is the best they could come up with?

I know, I know.  How I could leave you with but a wee taste of the album oriented rock awesomeness that is Journey?  Well, take heart and steady your mind for the most beautarded fan fic site on the Internet:  Perrytales, the everything Steve Perry fan fic site!  Why would Steve Perry warrant a fanfic site?  Try wrapping you mind around this trivia nugget:  Steve Perry’s first solo album went double platinum, meaning that it sold over 2 million copies in the U.S.  Now seriously, can anyone name another Steve Perry solo tune besides “Oh, Sherry” off the top of their head?  I know I sure can’t, but apparently that’s enough to guarantee Internet immortality.

*I kid, I kid.  Wait, no I don’t.  They still suck.  They are to Journey as the gunk under a hobo’s big toenail is to a tasty Philly Steak and Cheese.

    Ha, this weekend I secretly downloaded ‘Oh Sherry’ for use as a ringtone on my friend’s cell phone (I don’t have my own, I hate the things). Now whenever I call him, his face will be rocked by Steve Perry. The only downside is that I can’t be there when it rings. My friend frequents West Side dive bars, so it should go over well with the hip-hop set. Now that I think about it, I sure hope he doesn’t get stabbed. At least not without my being there to see it. Seems like a waste.

    Also, Steve Perry fanfic = brain explosion. I may have to write my own now. After years trying to figure out what I was meant to do with my life, I may have finally found it.

    Ack! It’s not a “Philly Steak and Cheese”, it’s a Philly cheesesteak (or cheese steak). Steak and Cheese is what those heathen New Englanders make with soggy hot dog rolls and cheese in a can.

    Well, yah.  Journey doesn’t kick that much ass.  Cheese sauce and soggy hot dog bun seem pretty accurate to me.

    You think they’re good enough for that? Come on, it’s Steve Perry…

    Philly Cheese Steak Hot Pockets are too good for Steve Perry. Also probably too expensive, as well.

    How about “Foolish Heart”?  No one remembers that song?  We Steve Perry fans love him because of his voice and the emotion he puts into his singing.  It’s not about how many No. 1 hits he had.  Obviously you guys won’t get ever get it.

    I’m OK with that.

    Anyways, I did some research this weekend. Did you know that Journey is the leading cause of Cancer? And this is unconfirmed, but I have it from a good source that Steve Perry “loves the cock.”

    I agree that Steve Perry sings (sang? do they still allow him to sing?) with great emotion. The only problem is that it was always the same emotion (i.e. ‘Ouch, someone just put my balls in a vice&#8217wink. As far as number 1 hits go, I don’t care, since I’m already aware that many, many people have very, very bad taste in music (See: Billboard charts for the past decade). This, of course, is based on the belief that I am right and anyone who thinks any different is stupid. As true as that is, you’d be surprised how hard it is to convince people. I guess everyone on the internets feels the same way, but only one of us can actually be right (me).

    I’m not sure why I’m responding, other than the fact that I haven’t had an internet fight so far this year. So yeah, Steve Perry sucks, and you suck for liking him.
