Public Journey in a Barbershop

A reader emailed me yesterday about his recent experience with Public Journey in a barbershop. I thought it was pretty funny, so I decided to share it here. Man, I wish I were a fly on the wall when this happened...

About a month ago I was in Tim's Barbershop getting my haircut, and it was just me and the barberlady, (which is unusually slow for the place). Normally they have the dozen or two TV's on in there tuned to sports games, but that day the TV's were off and the radio was on (probably because it was slow).

Faithfully comes on, and you know I'm about to make a joke about that Steve Perry and his handsome man hair when the barberlady starts quietly singing the song. And so I think she's just going to sing the few opening lines, but instead she sings the whole song, every word of it, including the whoa-oh-oh-oh's at the end. And I couldn't be all ironic and snarky about it because she was really feelin' it, I mean, downright melancholy as she sang the song.

In honor of the barberlady, let's sing together, shall we?

Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Faithfully!

Whoa-oh-oh-oh

I am yooouuurrrsss
