Just a small town whore
Livin in West Baltimore
She took the midwife's name
Hooking every night

He was a cinephile
Born and raised in Zoo Station
He took the sensual journey
Of Wong Kar-Wai

She birthed him in a smokey room
Smell of cum and condom wrappers
For a dollar you can share the night
With Lance's Mom and on and on and on

Don't Stop Screamin
Hold on to the ceilin
Three flights, a peephole
oh oooo whoa whoah whoa

Don't stop bleedin
Moan on and keep squealin
Always pain before a child is born

Hall & Oates deserve more credit than a guilty pleasure nod. That's some great white boy soul, and their earlier work never gets enough attention.

War Babies (produced by Todd Rundgren) is well-worth hearing.

One of my favorite Journey songs as well. Would have loved to see them live while Steve Perry was in the band.

Yeah I was just a couple years too young. I think Perry was gone by 1986 and that's when I first started going to shows.

I do have fond memories of playing the Journey video game though.

But Journey has become basically a karaoke version of themselves these days. I saw them with Perry when I was a teenager, decent but not great in concert. Perry had very little stage presence, so I guess the little Filipino guy (don't know his name) beats him there from what I've seen on Palladia etc.

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
But this trumps all:

Foreigner-Dirty White Boy - YouTube

Oh my god, I love Only the Young. Ha ha.

I'm on team Martha with the foreigner thing, though. That's the only Foreigner song I like, too. Because I'm a sucker for a big gospel choir finish.

I do also love this, though:

You should give that Dylan's Gospel album a shot. I love it.
