Oh, Sheeyit!!

So I'll admit it: I tuned into Glee tonight only because they used "Don't Stop Believin'" in the commercials. For one thing, any show that uses Journey to promote itself deserves at least one viewing; for another, I wanted to see if any Journey songs would actually be featured in the episode.

Oh. My. Steve Perry-lovin' GOD. I was treated to not one, not two, but three Journey moments! Two moments of people rocking out to "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'" and "Don't Stop Believin'," respectively, and the badass arrangement of "Don't Stop Believin'" the glee club sang at the end of the episode.

I'm having a PIO (by proxy) as we speak. I don't know if Journey will be featured in future episodes, but I will definitely tune in this fall. If you haven't watched tonight's episode, do it now. Do it for Steve. Do it for Journey.

Edit: here's a link to the audio of the arrangement of "Don't Stop Believin'" at the end of the episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-eD-AQjByQ


  1. Glee was awesome! I loved the Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin' flashback with Mom's Joe Dirt boyfriend.

    Here's a quote from Glee creator, Ryan Murphy:

    "Steve Perry has been incredible about licensing the song for us. He’s been and seen the pilot and loves it, and is very supportive. We’re hoping for him to make some sort of promotional appearances or do something with the show just because he’s been so great, and we all love him."


  2. That's it. This show is officially the coolest show ever. If Steve makes an appearance in any capacity, massive, massive, MASSIVE PIOs will be had across the country. Hospital attention might be required.

    Thanks for sharing the quote!

  3. Maybe he could play one of Rachel's two dads.

    Great, now I'm going to nerd out all afternoon thinking of potential Steve Perry Glee story lines. (even though I know he'll probably never appear)

  4. Haha, don't feel bad, I did it too. I think it would be awesome if he had a brief recurring role as the rival glee club's teacher/director. Talk about competition!

  5. Ooh, I like the idea of a rival glee club director. Of course I'm now picturing the rival glee club dressed in spandex.
