Even though Steve Perry went his own way for the time being, we have to mention his most popular single released and played on the radio – “Oh Sherrie”. However, our favorite song was “Strung Out”.

I also have to mention my favorite current song by Journey is “After All These Years” and from their album Eclipse is “City Of Hope”.

When Steve Perry chose to leave the band after dealing with health issues and other problems, Neal Schon made a difficult decision. He chose to find another vocalist who could do justice to the classic Journey songs. Schon’s first choice was Steve Augeri. Augeri not only sang like Perry, he resembled him as well.

Some fans did not like the replacement and felt like the band was trying to produce a Steve Perry clone. The Augeri era lasted through one album, Arrival before Schon was again searching for a lead vocalist.

The right man was found in Arnel Pineda, a native of the Philippines who dedicated his life to matching Steve Perry’s vocal range. Pineda took the reins in 2007 and continues to deliver faithful renditions of Journey songs today. He has even been given the stamp of approval by Perry himself.

Today, Journey is still going strong and selling out concert venues. Fans come to hear all the classic music that they grew up with. If you are looking for the perfect love song to add to your wedding or other events, look no further than this list of top Journey songs.
