Because I have been loosing large chunks of my memory it was suggested that when I do remember something that I write it down to help make sure I can go back to it later and remember it. When this memory was sparked by hearing the song I thought I would share it.

One of the first things Kevin did for me when I moved out here to be with him was take me to a concert and the band playing the whole concert was Journey. They were doing a two part concert and the opening act was actually playing on a separate stage as people walked in for seating.  Kevin had told me who we were going to see but I didn't recognize the name, turns out there are a lot of groups I know but don't know the name of, and I kept asking him what Journey sings.  Kevin kept telling me I would know who they were once they started singing.

During the whole first set he kept asking if I knew who they were yet, seems they were doing the lesser known songs first, and so I kept saying no.  Then the last song of the first set was Any Way You Want It and I nearly leapt out of my seat.  I know that song, I love that song, how could I have not known who sang it?  It is one of my favorite songs of all time!

Turns out I only actually knew three songs by Journey, but Kevin has a greatest hits album which I listen to with great regularity and love pretty much all of them.  Needless to say, for the rest of the concert I was either doing what I refer to as seat dancing where you bounce around like crazy to the rhythm of the music or swaying back and forth during the slow song.  I also remember that a couple next to us let me borrow their blanket because it was an outside concert and we didn't realize how cold it was going to get when the sun went down.

Hope you enjoyed the memory, I enjoyed remembering it :-)
That sounds like it was a lot of fun. :)
It was :-)
I remember Journey mostly from the album covers in the 70's, which were awesome; my brother collected them for that alone, since I don't think he cared for their music very much. For years all I knew of them was "Don't Stop Believin'", "Open Arms" (from the "Heavy Metal" soundtrack), and "Girl Can't Help It", because it was on the radio when I was in high school. The first time I was playing Rock Band 2, I saw "Any Way You Want It" in the track listings, and I was like, "Oh, so that's Journey too, is it? I totally know that song!"
Funny buying albums for the covers instead of the music. I can't remember what the other two songs are that I knew at the time of the concert, I just remember that one and me nearly leaping into the air.
