    Must be missing something here: which Journey song is she referring to?

    That makes two of us with the question. I have heard multiples times though that there is some song of Journeys from about the ’70’s or one that they cover that was way over played and still gets played a lot at times. So whichever that one was is probably the song in question.

    Now, don’t get me wrong. I was 17 in 1968. I played my records ALL the time….LOUD…But today a lot of my friends have music playing all the time everywhere, in the house, in the car, in the back yard…….Even when they go up north…Why not listen to the birdies? Sting said something that rings true to me…He said he doesn’t listed to music or a song for entertainment exactly, he listens to it to study it as a work of art…To learn why he enjoys them so much…That’s the way I listen to my favorite songs…I pay attention to them, they don’t just fly by…I love them, I will not consign them to being wall paper….So sayeth The Varnes Of Ackley!

    My first backpacking trip in the high Rockies (1973) was a revelation to me, as pristine, lovely, and peaceful as our remote wilderness-area campsite was. Within a few years, we quit going, as people were bringing guitars, tape players, and other noisemakers that effectively changed the place from wilderness to a suburb. Peaceful no more!

    re: varnes

    (I wasn’t alive yet in 1968.) Your point about music everywhere is a good observation.
    That loud music has a price, too. When I’m out with a group, it’s normal that half or more of them can’t hear even loud bird calls, much less the softer ones.
    the ability to hear out in the woods can be pretty important. Back in college, brother and I had slid on cinders and crunched the car on a mountain road. Went back later to measure skid marks on the pavement. While doing it, suddenly we look up at each other. Brother says “that’s the fourth time I’ve heard that”. We’d both heard a bear near the road. It was a sound of curiosity, but we went back to the car, pronto.

    “Don’t Stop Believing”, the infamous tune that closed out “The Sopranos” series.

    I use my music for two purposes:

    1. It’s a good pacing tool, along with a timing mechanism for intervals.

    2. I don’t have to listen to my asthmatic wheezing.

    When I’m at the gym, I’m usually listening to an audiobook while I work out…except, for some reason, when I’m on the elliptical. For that, I need music.

    I don’t listen to classic rock stations, but do like classic rock music in general. There are certain groups that I will change the station if they come up. Led Zepplin and Aerosmith are the main two, but Guns and Roses do that to me too. I will listen to any Journey though.

    I don’t like listening to anything while I’m hiking, so that I can enjoy nature. But while I’m jogging (or attempting to), I like listening to music for exactly the reasons that *texasl * stated…

    Some of us may not enjoy exercise QUITE as much as Frazz, and therefore need the music for extra motivation!

    And now we have dirt bikes and ATVs.

    Reality makes sense. It’s when we start to make up our own that the nonsense arises.
