Journey’s Greatest Hits have been playing on repeat so often that I have to pay homage.
As a legendary band, they have a unique band story throughout the 40 years that they’ve been creating art for the world.
Their Wikipedia, and countless other news articles, are full of information that I read some of. I advise you to do the same if their music speaks to you!
I was meditating with God and we were reflecting on Journey’s music while listening to the Greatest Hits album on Tidal… and so here are some things that are interesting about Journey’s journey.
1) They have so many 80’s hits. And Journey’s songs are also remarkably meaningful. The lyrics are top notch and then the voice arts from Stephen Perry (and now Arnel Pineda) take it over the top. He can really sing and it comes from a cool place.
2) and because of that quality, it’s okay that Stephen went his separate ways. I’m so thankful for what they’ve created! It’s divine, for sure.
3) I see major blessings that Journey was blessed with a second lead singer, that has a singing style so similar to the original Stephen Perry. That’s a rare instance and that shows God smiling on Journey.
I’m telling you the truth, Journey’s songs are really next level of you consider dimensions in music.
The LYRICS too and importantly.
When I listened to their GREATEST HITS album, there were some songs that I was surprised to hear, like Who’s Crying Now and Send Her My Love.6
My favorite song? Faithfully for right now. But come on, Steve Perry’s voice is a top ten Gem on every song.
I’d say all of my favorite Journey songs were released before I was born. Timeless, classic, perfection.
I’d also say that God is also pleased with Journey’s music. I can listen to The Greatest Hits on repeat and it’s all good. [By contrast, there are some violent songs that I cannot listen to on repeat, regardless how much I like it]
I wonder what it was like in the studio when Steve Perry recorded Faithfully.
It is overwhelming for me to think about how many people feel joy, peace, and comfort when listening to Faithfully, Open Arms, and all of Journey’s other songs that they love.
Well, that’s all for my notes! Last night, the prophet Moses revealed to me in a dream that I should share more of my light with others. What He showed me was a house that was luminous inside with moonlight and we stood on the outside. Moses and I contemplated- how can that house share their special luminosity with those on the outside.
