i've got the box set, it's pretty sweet...and NO ONE can deny Freebird

i'm scared of Journey pulling the upset though :-o


This would be enough reason for me to vote them down. Freebird is the equivilent of that old skit where Wayne and Garth are in the music store and the guy stops him and points to the "No Stairway" sign. One of the most overplayed, overrated songs in history. Only Stairway and (please God kill me if I ever hear this again) Stranglehold by the Nuge are worse. Besides, Jorney cranked out quite a few hits in their time, and inspired alot of bands themselves.


I never thought I would ssee Sixx go soft and vote Journey. B-)

i can understand why you hate it, but i still think it's a great song. hell, if the South would have won it'd probably be our National Anthem.

oh, and here you go:
HERE I COME AGAIN NOW BABY
LIKE A DOG IN HEAT
TELL IT'S ME BY THE WAY NOW BABY
I LIKE TO TAP THE STREETS

NOW I'VE BEEN SMOKING FOR SO LONG
YOU KNOW I'M HERE TO STAY
GOT YOU IN A STRANGLEHOLD BABY
YOU BEST GET OUT OF THE WAY

GONNA CRUISE IS A BEACH NOW BABY
YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T DO ME 'ROUND
IF YOUR HOUSE GETS IN MY WAY BABY
YOU KNOW I'LL BURN IT DOWN

YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT THAT YOU LEFT ME
YOU PUT ME IN MY PLACE
GOT YOU IN A STRANGLEHOLD NOW BABY
YOU BETTER CROSS YOUR WAY

solo

SOMETIMES YOU WANNA GET HIGHER
SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA START LOW
SOME PEOPLE THINK THEY GONNA DIE SOMEDAY
I GOT NEWS YOU NEVER GOT TO GO OLD

COME ON COME ON UP; 4 times
COME ON COME ON BABY
COME ON COME ON UP
COME ON COME ON BABY
COME ON COME ON

GONNA CRUISE IS A BEACH NOW BABY
YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T DO ME 'ROUND
IF YOUR HOUSE GETS IN MY WAY BABY
YOU KNOW I'LL BURN IT DOWN

YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT THAT YOU LEFT ME
YOU PUT ME IN MY PLACE
GOT YOU IN A STRANGLEHOLD NOW BABY
YOU BETTER CROSS YOUR WAY

This is a battle of who could care less!

I couldn't name you one Journey song and the 2 LS songs I could name I hate. I think I'm going to have to abstain from voting on this one cuz I really don't like either one and can't decide who I dislike more. :-b

Always liked Skynyrd's "Simple Man". Journey had some fairly catchy tunes, but I gave the nod to LS.
Don't give up the ship...........sell it!!
