The Top Ten

Don't Stop Believin'
A very good example of rock ballad with a fuse of hard rock and with the soulful guitaring of Neal Schon. Everyone should bow to this song when it comes to Journey.
Insanely inspiring, just lifts up my mood every time.
Poetic lyrics and soulful voice. Love it!
Hopeful and inspiring, it makes me happy 100% of the time!
[Newest]I love this song!

2Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)
I immediately fell in love with this song
You'll fall in love with this song the very first time you listen it. Best of all time. Very Inspirational music though the lyrics are sad
I love Journey. I love the ballads like Lights, Open Arms--but enjoy the more straight rock of Separate Ways and Don't stop Believin' the best.
[Newest]There are great songs out there, but this song makes you STOP and LISTEN. I can't but think of that special someone in my life when Separate Ways is played. This is a universal song which reaches the human spirit.

Extremely motivating and well-written lyrics.
Melody is very catchy.
Fantastic song. One of my favorite of all time. Definitely needs to be a little higher on the list.
Awesome my dad's favorite and now my favorite this song rocks one way to describe it 3 letters R.A. D
[Newest]The most heartfelt song ever written. This is definitely my favorite song on earth. This song is one of those songs that starts out slow and then has that amazing climax at the end, which not many songs have. It literally tears my heart out and I want to cry every time I hear it, but in a good way. Perry is the best singer in the world and the way he holds a tune for as long as he does and hits the notes at the perfect pitch is definitely god given! I wish he was still singing. Nobody can match him ever!

4Any Way You Want It
Much much better than don't stop believen' this song has the catchy chorus and a great solo as well!
This was the first Journey song I listened to, I loved the kind of immediate start, the guitar riffs and solo, and Steve Perry is just great in this song.
The most amazing harmony intro to any song ever
[Newest]Love songs like this, deserves to be number 3 on the list!

5Open Arms
Every time I hear this song I think of the movie date movie. You know the part when grant and juilia are in the elevator and then the other 2 people come in and then they start having sex in the elevator? HA HA HA HA HA HA SO FUNNY.
I absolutly love this song! It's most definitely in my top 3 favorite Journey songs! Open arms, Faithfully, and After All These Years are the top 3! Oh, and for all of you piano players out there, you should really go online and figure out how to play the intro. It's really pretty!
Steve Perry can hit the impossible high notes, and this song goes to prove what range he has.
[Newest]This song is beautifully written and has nice vocals

6Wheel In the Sky
How is this not higher on the list? This is definitely one of Journey's most awesome songs. The intro to this song is amazing!
This is totally my favorite Journey song. I think it deserves to be far higher up on the list.
Holy crap! Steve's voice in this songs is crystal! This is right when he joined the band and when his voice was virgin perfect! Great lyrics too! I like his voice best when he sang faithfully when it was seasoned a bit more and more manly, but either way this guy truly has a voice that is a gift from god for all of us to hear. I think he is the best singer in the world, no kidding!
In my opinion it's the BEST. Love it.

I want this to be my wife and my song
Great song bout San Francisco
A good song abou San Francisco

8Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'
This song rocks, has a great story/theme, and ends will a wonderful rolling chant that will always have me singing along to the end.
Best song without a doubt, don't stop believing is great but to popular this song is way more soul full you can really jam out to it
I like the dick

9Send Her My Love
Perfect song in all music aspects!
Should definitely be top 10! Great song!
I think I've commented on every song! They are all so good! This is probably one of my top 5, amazing lyrics and steve, oh steve!

10Girl Can't Help It
Should be number -- 1 -- says it all.
This song is underrated! The music, lyrics, and vocals are all so perfect. Steve Perry truly has a "golden voice" and this song showcases his immense talent. And, as an interesting sidebar, Randy Jackson (from American Idol fame) played bass and sang back-up vocals for this song - laugh out loud.
By far the best Journey song.

The Contenders

11Who's Crying Now
#1 Journey Song!
A great track from escape
I'm a true music conoseur and a metal listener but this song has got to be one of, or if not the greatest song of all time, right up there with my most beloved metal songs.
[Newest]The best song ever.

12Only the Young
Should be ranked much higher - amazing voice lifts you up
There are many songs from journey that don't get the recognition they should, not just the music, but the lyrics
The group stand alone in expertise in their field. How I wish I could play half as well as any of them, especially Neil schon,
This song takes be back. It makes me feel young again. So many memories...

13After All These Years
A song of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Amazing new song that touch everyone's heart and soul.
Love This New Song And Amazing Solo And Singing


I love this song, I remember all may past... According to may ex, I hope 1 day she come back and she say... I LOVE YOU AGAIN.. ^_____^
[Newest]One of the most beautiful songs of all time

14Stone In Love
Underappreciated because it shares an album with the classic don't stop beliving.
An very underrated song
I agree this is a very underappreciated song. Escape is just an amazing record. Nice guitar solo by Neal. This song is often covered by others artists, if that's not an accomplishment, I don't know what is.

15Be Good to Yourself
Great song, great guitar work by neal schon
Totally 80s rock journey has changed throughout the years (the style) I love it all. Why make a list of top journey songs when people might as well love every journey song like I do?
Excellent intro, amazing guitar solo, awesome lyrics, gets you hyper. Great song to listen to on a sunny day

16The Eyes of a Woman

17Too Late

18After the Fall
This is one of my favorites by journey

19Ask the Lonely
This is very sad seeing this at number 27. In my opinion it should be in the top 5. Unfortunately its not as well know as the others such as don't stop believing. But I think this has one of the best messages.
Are you joking? How is this not in the top 5, top 10? This song is fantastic and has great lyrics.
Amazing intro, easily one of their best songs

20Still They Ride
This song is amazing

21When I Think of You
Amazing Song Beautiful as well!


This song gets you pumped. Once you hear the first 2 seconds
It is one of perfect rock songs

23Mother, Father
Mother Father is one of my favorite Journey songs. It is on side B of their record E5C4P3 (Escape), the only album to go to #1. The song features intense vocals, displaying clearly the talent of their lead singer Steve Perry. This is not the kind of song one could simply hum along with, as it has a difficult to follow melody and an insane range. Every time I hear Mother Father I find myself in awe as Perry hits these crazy high notes. The instrumentals in the song are very good, too. I especially like the piano playing at the beginning and end.
Why is this not higher! Lyrically this is Steve's best ever! Nobody can and will ever be able to sing it as well as he did. Everyone should watch him sing this live and tell me you don't stop breathing when he sings, it is amazing how long he can carry his voice and a tune! Amazing voice and lyrics. Very moving! Watch him sing this everyone, please!

24Feeling That Way
When Feeling That Way is coupled with Anytime, this duo is unstoppable. Perry's first album with Journey was a slam dunk.

25When You Love a Woman
25! Should definitely be from the top 10! Sound of Jonathon's Cain piano and violins are beautifully harmonizing. Neal Schon's small pieces yet amazing solo parts. Steve Smith's soft drum beats. And of course not to mention Perry's beautiful voice!
Awesome song I just love, it should've been in the top 10
Should be much higher on the list, beautiful song!
[Newest]Beautiful rock love ballad!
