Part of my problem with Journey is that an old boyfriend of mine looked like Steve Perry, and not in a good way.

Another problem I have with Journey is that they suck.

Steve Perry was directly involved in the murder (and subsequent cover-up of the murder) of CORY MONTEITH.

One of many things that make the final scene of The Sopranos so great is that they make a band like Journey tolerable.

My favorite Journey songs sound like Foreigner.

I liked that one Foreigner song. Which one was it. It was sappy, I remember that.

Foreigner sucks.

Journey (at least once Perry joined) was pretty generic pop rock. But Perry did have an amazing set of pipes and the musicians in the band were talented, particularly Neil Schon. Foreigner had none of these things, and is basically comparable to another shit band like Bad Company.

Let's look at the respective hits of the bands:

FOREIGNER
I Want To Know What Love Is
Hot Blooded
Double Vision
Head Games
Urgent
Cold As Ice
Waiting For A Girl Like You

JOURNEY
Don't Stop Believing
Open Arms
Lights
Wheel In The Sky
Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'
Who's Crying Now
Only The Young
Faithfully

Not even close, IMO.

Plus, these are fairly impressive stats on their Greatest Hits release:

It is the band's best-selling album to date, spending over 760 weeks on the Billboard pop album charts (more than any other compilation album in history) and selling over 25 million copies as of 2008. As of December 2008, it is the sixth highest certified greatest hits package in the United States according to the RIAA,[4] behind only similar packages by The Eagles, Billy Joel, Elton John, and The Beatles' red and blue compilations.

It continues to be one of the most popular greatest hits packages, selling 500,000 to one million copies per year.

THAT'S the song I like. I like sappy songs.

I got to see Journey when they were an instrumental prog band. They didn't suck then.

Half of those Journey hits are completely intolerable to me at this point. If I want late 70s, early 80s radio schlock, give me Hall and Oates any day. If I want rock music, I would never listen to Journey anyway.

As for Foreigner, "Hot Blooded" is one of Homer Simpson's favorite songs, for whatever that's worth.
