Best Journey Songs

The Top Ten

1 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!

I'm not a fan of Journey, but this song is really amazing. The music fits together with Steve Perry's voice so well. Definitely one of the best power ballads ever.

3 Separate 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.

This is the song that caused me to love rock n roll! It is the first rock song I saw live!

4 Any 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

Great tune

5 Open 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.

WOW GREAT SONG

6 Wheel 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!

Fantastic track!

8 Only 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...

Opening song to the movie Vision Quest...Great song. Great movie!

9 Send Her My Love

Makes you think about the girl you love and miss amazing vocals and guitar thanks Steve and Neil

Perfect song in all music aspects!

Should definitely be top 10! Great song!

This is my favourite song of journey..

10 Lovin', 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

Powerful drum/bass to begin, major lead guitar/vocals in the middle, and pure awesome taunting at the the end. The na-nas in this song actually aren't just there for fun.

Who hasn't been in this situation and this song got them through?

The Contenders

11 Who's Crying Now

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.

Just listen to it. Easily in the top 5. Great lyrics, melody, and flow. The ending may be the best part. Forget the POP aspect. Blows away Separate Ways. This list is garbage (or rather, the voters are clueless).

Best song of all time rap, rock, pop, metal, classical. Better than all of then

12 Girl Can't Help It

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.

Should be number -- 1 -- says it all.

Yes, currently at 12, the song is underrated. I think it's one of the highlight songs of their career, the guitar incredibly good, I think Neal Schon's best guitar break solo. The vocal harmonies are also great, not only Steve Perry doing a memorable job with the vocals.

Agree with the bridge comment...Awesome!

14 Stone in Love

This comment below was attached to "Girl Can't Help It," but was meant for "Stone in Love." Must have clicked the wrong comment button. Sorry! (Wish we could edit our goof ups... Could this comment be deleted from "Girl Can't Help It"? It doesn't fit that song, is misleading and doesn't make much sense.)

Yes, currently at 12, the song is underrated. I think it's one of the highlight songs of their career, the guitar incredibly good, I think Neal Schon's best guitar break solo. The vocal harmonies are also great, not only Steve Perry doing a memorable job with the vocals.

This is my all time favorite journey song. It brings back memories about the first beautiful girl I was with when I was in my youth. Few songs convey such vivid imagery and feeling as this song.

An very underrated song

How is this number 14, currently. Should be easily in top 5. Extremely underrated!

15 I'll Be Alright Without You

60! This is unbelievable, it's in my top 3, why the hell it's ranked this low

This song is amazing it shouldn't be this low

brilliant

16 Mother, Father

This song, from the album Escape, is my personal favorite. It is not highly known outside of Journey fandom, but it is extraordinary and really highlights Steve Perry's strengths. The very end is particularly impressive. Steve Perry has said that it is the most difficult Journey song to sing. Neal Schon has also said that it is his favorite journey song to play, at least it was when the interview took place.

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!

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.

Very underrated song. Steve climbed to the heights of vocal. It's perfect.

This is their best song!

18 Ask 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.

This should be way higher. Totally underrated, better than even Separate Ways if you ask me!

Only number 18...Does anyone have ears anymore...Clearly not.. should be way higher...At least number 10. - Joshgbpack12

19 When I Think of You

I believe Steve wrote this beautiful song for his Mother Mary.

Amazing Song Beautiful as well! - Curti2594

The guitar solo is pretty awesome in this one! - Curti2594

20 The Eyes of a Woman

Beautiful piano. Steve is excellent as usual!

21 Keep On Runnin'
22 Feeling that Way

If you've never listened to this song, listen to it. I think it should be in the top 15

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

It's just so good, the two lead singer mesh so well together.

23 Suzanne

A big hit that sadly fell through the cracks.

Great build up to the chorus!

Great song!

24 Winds of March

Should be MUCH higher! This isn't just an incredible Journey song, but one of the most Epic Songs of all time! EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!

25 Look Into the Future
26 Edge of the Blade
27 Escape

Escape not even in the top 20? That's criminal! It's one of the more creative and powerful, musically complex in a great way, rock songs ever, filled with a youthful, optimistic energy and joy at taking on life, head-on. The song has everything, and it's not another stupid rock song about sex.

This song gets you pumped. Once you hear the first 2 seconds

Journey is probably the most loved band of all time. They are so professional. Love the pounding of the keyboards on this song. It takes me higher. Should be in the top ten.

Just love the change in tempo at about 1 min 20 then the keyboard takes off.By then I'm on my way.

28 After the Fall

One of my favorites also, if not favorite Journey song. It belongs in the top 5, beautiful melody with powerful harmonies, soulful: the song has everything. It's one of those rare songs that puts me in a place, something deeply resonant about it. I actually don't care for the syrupy, mawkish, slow ballads, but this less boisterous and more subtle song is a real gem.

This is one of my favorites by journey

So Many good ones, but this does not get onough love

29 In My Lonely Feeling/Conversations
30 Of a Lifetime

Journey's music was so good before Steve Perry joined the band

best. nr.1

31 Troubled Child

Amazing vocals. This song is underrated. Sadly since not many people listen to albums but rather just greatest hits not many people know this song. Easily top 10

Should be higher up the list

32 Anytime

How the hell is this not higher? Have any of you actually heard this song it is firkin awesome!

Everyone around where this plays, all start singing it; so, why did it only rank 29th? Duh...

Gregg Rolie on keyboard lead vocals.

Under rated!

33 Moon Theme
34 Chain Reaction

Really like Chain Reaction, also, and think it's too far down on the list. It's hard driving and unusual, in the "love gone south" vein of songs, that lyric, "Love's a viper, steals your soul" a deep expression of negative aspects of what a relationship not going right can do to a person, which the emptiness of the "What now? " sort of theme expresses. It's a sophisticated view, for a thinking, adult person, and the music a perfect match. Whatever people say, complaining of Journey being, as if, a corporate rock band, you can argue against their musical sophistication and tight quality of presentation, polish lacking in many, many other bands. Whatever Journey did, they did it well, like the song or not.

Correction, please, to a comment just a made, "you CAN'T argue with their..." The next song on the list at 25, Too Late, expresses what it is to be typing at this hour! Nice website, by the way.

Love this song it gets you pumped up!

Great heavy riff.Thankfully nothing like Diana Ross.

35 Dead or Alive
36 Why Can't This Night Go On Forever?

How is this number 76?! This song is so powerful, and unfortunately it's always forgotten about. I'd put this right up there with Faithfully!

One of my favorites! How is it so low!?

37 Don't Be Down on Me Baby

Mature love song that should be ranked much higher

38 Too Late

A top 10 song

39 When 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!

One of the most beautiful songs I have heard from Journey. Simply Steve Perry at his best!

42 Somethin' to Hide
43 Do You Recall
44 Patiently

Lovely mellow start then great guitar.Should be higher on list.

45 Still They Ride

Outstanding song. It just always puts me in a good mood. I don't know what it is about it, but it should be much much higher on the list. Top 10, or hell, even Top 5 for me!

Best Journey song by far.

31? This song should be in the top five.

From their top album.Perry sounds brilliant as ever.
