The Greatest Journey Love Songs Ever!
Ballads and Rock
Journey has some of the best love songs we’ve ever heard. It’s not just the lyrics but the harmonies, melody and of course, Steve Perry’s vocal performance. His golden voice simply elevated every single track. Journey also managed to make hard rock soulful. However, just because they’re love songs doesn’t necessarily mean they’re all happy and have happy endings.
Here are five of them.
It’s sad, oh there’s been mornings
Out on the road without you
Without your charms
Steve Perry makes hitting high notes look so easy. The pure and raw emotion – absolutely breathtaking.
4. Open Arms
Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heartbeat with mine
Softly you whisper, you’re so sincere
How could our love be so blind
One of Journey’s most iconic songs may be a bit cheesy but it’s timeless for a reason.
3. Any Way You Want It
I was alone
I never knew
What good love could do
No matter where you are or what you’re doing, when this song comes on, you have to stop and listen. There’s so much to love about it – it’s catchy with killer riffs and solo.
2. Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
If we can’t go on
To survive the tide
The song’s a bit sad but it’s straight up rock and we love it.
They say that the road ain’t no place to start a family
Right down the line it’s been you and me
And lovin’ a music man ain’t always what it’s supposed to be
Oh, girl, you stand by me
I’m forever yours
If this isn’t one of the most romantic things we’ve heard. It’s beautifully sung and clearly one of Journey’s best works.
