"tikrit" may have been a tasteless rhyme, sorry about that :-/

Lechera, it's a Survivor thread! Don't worry about taste.

Listening to their albums on spotify right now...so many of these songs are great, but yeah the Journey-isms seem even more shameless now than they did at the time (?!).

I love how the words to these songs have been in my brain since 1984 even though iirc I have never (aside from the karaoke bar) intentionally listened to them.

Burning Heart is damn good, and whenever I sing it at karaoke, I'm always impressed by the depth of the lyrics.

Wrote this about The Best Of Survivor(Volcano/Legacy) in an MTV Urge blog post a few years back: "Most awesome songs besides the tiger one turn out to be 'High On You' (#8 pop, '85), which starts out like the Four Seasons’ 'Who Loves You' and then says 'there you stood/that'll teach ya' and which I probably always thought was 38 Special (in post-Cars powerpop mode) and '83's criminally non-Top-40-charting 'Caught in the Game,' which sounds petty much exactly like Eddie Money's great 'Shakin'' from the year before."

So: "High On You."

"First Night" wasn't top 40, huh? I have a soft spot for it.

I was OBSESSED with "The Search Is Over" in fifth grade. I think it was just the title. I wrote a story inspired by the title and its soundtrack was just this song, except I don't think I knew how it went, I'd just seen the album at the mall.

I hope I voted for "Burning Heart".
