Quick question.

Aside from its epic breadth, bleeding-heart triumphalism, and really rad keyboard tone, can someone tell me why Journey's "Don't Stop Believing Believin'" is Number 10* on the iTunes Music Store Hot 100 Singles? Is it, like, the credit music for Wedding Crashers? What am I missing here?

* Damn you Black Eyed Peas! By the time I'd finished the post they'd bumped Journey to no. 11. Phunk them. Hey, but while we're all in small print, let me reproduce this hilarious bit of artistic integrity, as found in the bio on Journey's official site:
"The switch to their signature highly sophisticated rock occurred with the recording of their hugely successful album, Infinity. Journey's drummer, Aynsley Dunbar, was unhappy with this new style and left for Jefferson Starship, to be replaced by legendary drummer Steve Smith."
Fuck you, Journey and your sophisticated rock sound. I'm off to build a city on rock 'n roll.
