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.
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.V 2 Comments
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.V 2 Comments
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...

Should be MUCH higher! This isn't just an incredible Journey song, but one of the most Epic Songs of all time! EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!
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.V 1 Comment
Mature love song that should be ranked much higher
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!
How can this NOT be their best songV 5 Comments
Journey's music was so good before Steve Perry joined the bandV 1 Comment
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!
