Song #8- A Song That You Know All The Words To

Journey "Don't Stop Believing"

I know I'm not alone in knowing all the words to this (this has been proven many times on Facebook). It's normally on the Top 100 downloaded songs on ITunes, which is pretty freaking impressive. I have always liked this song, but it's only been in the past year that it has grown to love. A lot of it has to do with my son Truman. He first heard this song when we watched the Disney movie Bedtime Stories (which is heard at least 3 times in the movie). Then he realized that I had the song on one of my Cd's so he started requesting it. Before I knew it, Truman had learned all the words and was requesting for my Mom and I to play it several times in a row (except Mom's version is from Glee). When my sister got married and we were at the reception afterward, Truman performed this song to everyone at the venue... and stole the night! My cousin Katy recorded it and posted it on Facebook. Here is the link if you would like to view his performance (and try not to smile or laugh when you see him shaking his hips).!/video/video.php?v=10150103348607033

At my work, this song is played pretty frequently (like that would surprise anyone... knowing I work at a grill and bar). I catch myself singing along with my coworkers and our regulars. I kind of get that proud feeling whenever this happens, just seeing a random group of people singing along to a song together is pretty cool. This song will forever remain a classic, for many generations to come :-)


  1. Cool song. Seeing Truman perform it added something to it though, lol He was like a human metronome. Very cute video.

  2. I LOOOOOVE this song! And I love when we play it at work, too.

    It's great how a song that was "before my time" is still so great and timeless. If you don't love it, something is wrong with you, haha.

    Oh, and it totally reminds me of a scene from Laguna Beach, back 'n tha day (lol) when Steven and LC are in his car. :)
