More Than Moving

Although it is bold to claim which of Steve Perry’s amazing live performances are the best, we would have to argue that his insanely pristine vocals and range in the 1978 Chicago “Winds Of March” is it. As a great professional in the industry, Steve has always been versatile and respected worldwide with his unbelievable ability to belt out some of the most heartfelt ballads ever written.

Interesting Fact: Perry’s band Alien Project was almost signed to CBS Records in 1978, but then their bass player was killed in a car crash. A blessing in disguise for Perry, this led to landing the vocalist spot in Journey.

From Journey’s fourth album, Infinity, “Winds Of March” proves to be one of the sweetest soft rock songs in existence about a parent experiencing the heart wrenching loss of a child. As it was Steve’s first album with the band coming from a harder rock sound, fans of the San Franciscan group hesitantly welcomed Perry with “open arms.”

Although there are hundreds of performances to choose from, this happens to be our favorite and most touching vision of the great Steve Perry.

+ Winds Of March Lyrics +

I covered you with roses
Like the stars at night
I covered you with love
Like a blanket on a cold winter’s night
I covered you with joy
To make your lifetime big and bright

You touched me with your eyes
Soft as an evening breeze
You held me in your arms
As the winds rushed through the trees

You are my child
You make my lifetime big and bright
You are my child
You came like the winds of March
With all the love in your eyes
You are my child
You came like the morning lights
With all your love, in your eyes
You are my child
You came like the morning light
With all your love, in your eyes
