I was thinking about what to write this evening and was at a standstill. Did some searching, and for some reason, "Open Arms" by Journey came to mind. If you haven't noticed, I absolutely LOVE Journey. They are my favorite group--not only from the '80s, but from all time. Steve Perry's voice is completely unmatched--it's pure, clear, beautiful, and powerful. He is equally at home with ballads and hard rockin' tunes. Even their "fun" songs long "Anyway You Want It" really showcase his vocal talents. Anyway, "Open Arms" is a gorgeous ballad about a couple who "sailed on together" and "drifted apart"-- but then they found each other again. I think the fact that they found each other again is what really makes it touching. The opening piano line is beautiful, and when Steve Perry comes in, it is true simplistic vocal beauty. Just his voice and piano. You know how much work vocalists go through in school to get that voice/piano accompaniment perfect? It's astounding, and some vocalists never really achieve that perfect musical union. Clearly, we have it hear. When the rest of the band comes in, the instrumentals are strong, firm, yet not overpowering. I really love this song. It is true beauty. A real gem in the Journey discography that shines throughout time.
