Steve Perry's iTunes Playlist

In a comment on the previous post, The Pride of Hanford mentioned Steve Perry's iTunes playlist. Since he has a diverse taste in music, I was curious to see what all was on there, so I downloaded iTunes (yes, just for that--don't judge me) and decided to post it. Below are the songs, and his reason for including them on the list:

Clocks: "This song takes me back to when I was hanging on the sound stage of the film Monster. It's a timeless tune!"

Baby I Need Your Loving: "When I went to my first Prom. I was too young to drive so we double dated with an older couple, and from their backseat, I first heard this song. Sexy."
(I think the image of a young, inexperienced Steve in one of those tuxes with the frills deserves a resounding AWWWWWW--wait, what am I thinking? It's STEVE PERRY! He's never been inexperienced!)

Can't Find My Way Home: "When I first came to LA to try and get signed to a record label, this song was really big and it still reminds me of what those times were like, and how happy I am that my childhood dream came true!"

Hollaback Girl: "When I first heard its drum pocket jump through my car radio, I loved it right away and then I found out it was Gwen, well...I really love her...A LOT!"
(What I hope he'll one day say about this blog, heh heh. I know, I know, keep dreaming, right?)

Don't Disturb This Groove: "This is reall old school R&B, very cool track that was here and gone but is still one of my favorites."

In the Yard, Behind the Church: "I can't say enough about E, he's one of the best songwriters I've heard in years. This song has some of the most brilliant lyrics and his voice is very sincere!"

It's a M**********r: "How can you not love this song. E is real Ball-Z."
(Oh, snap, look at Steve throwin' out the punz!)

Hot in Herre: When I first heard this on the radio, I really liked the, It's getting hot in here, I think I'll take my clothes off chorus."
(Is it just me, or does Steve seem to be a fan of all things sexy and nude? Hmmm...)


  1. "Is it just me, or does Steve seem to be a fan of all things sexy and nude? Hmmm..."

    It's not just you, I noticed it too. Maybe he's planning on bringing sexy back.

    I'm so impressed that you downloaded iTunes just to see what was on SP's list. :)

  2. :-) You know, I've been resisting the urge to download iTunes for some time now. I almost did it to download the Glee version of "Don't Stop Believin'" but I had to when you mentioned his playlist. It did not disappoint!

  3. Now that you have iTunes, you should check out It's Over and Dreams Reality by Forrest McDonald, with vocals by Steve Perry. Both songs are from around 1976, and Dreams Reality has a real bubblegum/Hannah-Barbera/Sid & Marty Krofft sound.

    I had to laugh at your tags-- Nelly Nude Sexy so Tobias Funke!

  4. Haha, yeah, I like to throw in some off-the-wall tags in my posts, just to see if anybody notices them. :-) So far, you're the first!

    Thanks for the recommendation--I will fire up iTunes and have a listen.

    By the way, I love Arrested Development. I heard that the movie is finally filming! I hope so, anyway.

  5. So I just got done listening to them, and I really like Dreams Reality. It's Over is a bit too easy listening for my taste, but it's not a bad song.

  6. I had no idea if you would even know who Tobias Funke was, so I'm glad you're a fan of AD. At least we know Steve Perry isn't a never nude, because he couldn't fit the cut-offs under the spandex.

    I agree about It's Over. It's very Time Life Soft Rock Hits Of The '70's infomercial hosted by Air Supply. But I think that's why I like it.

  7. Luvvv "It's Over." As always, thanks!

  8. No there is no way that Steve IS bringing sexy back. He already did when he was born
