Journey


Years ago, when iTunes first came out, I decided to make a CD for myself called "American Cheez." It featured classics from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon and more. I don't know what it is about a classic power ballad sung in falsetto that gets me, but there's something to it.

Just witness the finale of "The Sopranos." A show that for years has featured closing songs that are almost beyond obscure, chooses to go out with "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey.

A bold choice by David Chase, but that got me remembering one of the first "viral videos" that went out back around 2000. I was working at AOL at the time, and we were wracking our brains trying to come up with a way to feature this brilliant piece of amateur flash animation.

Now that you're watched both, you won't get Steve Perry's voice out of your head for weeks, and his evil plan will be complete!
