Journey and NFL Films - Video Review Feature

Group: Journey
Song: Faithfully
Album: Frontiers
Year: 1983
Written by: Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain
Anyone who listened to "The Tony Kornheiser Show" on ESPN and Washington Post radio remembers that he had a segment called "Old Man Radio" a spin-off, Stiles Points is going to be doing a weekly feature called "Video Review" where we look back at a classic song and video...the band Journey will start this off with the song "Faithfully"....

What is great about this video is that is shows what life is like on the road touring, which was on the cutting edge for a music video at that time...another interesting fact is that Journey hired NFL Films to record a video documentary of their life on the road for their Frontiers and Beyond one his final works before dying, John Facenda, voice of NFL Films, narrated the documentary...

My thoughts - the song deals with life on the road and being away from the person you love the most...the video shows the grind of being on even get to see lead singer Steve Perry with a mustache...

I was in 8th grade when this song rose to #12...even though I was not big Journey fan then, I am sorry that I never saw them in concert while Perry was the lead me, Journey is now a pretend group without him as the lead along with Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, Neal Schon, and Steve Smith to round out the group...every week I will pick out my favorite line of the make sure to listen for the line...
Favorite line:
They say that the road
Ain't no place to start a family
