What the heck is it about this song? I hated it growing up, but now I can’t get enough. It was featured in the “Glee” pilot. This past weekend, I asked Husband to sing it and seven-year-old Niece to do the guitar solo (they obliged). Right now, I’m obsessed with Journey. I love when music becomes “formerly despised,” made beautiful by its own merits and nostalgia for the past.
What’s next? Lover Boy? (“Everybody’s Working for the Weekend”). Hall and Oates? (“Making My Dreams Come True”). Jefferson Starship? (Shudder, perish the thought. If I hear “We Built This City on Rock ‘n Roll,” part of me dies.)
