“Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme song was originally suggested by my tellybision.
BONUS - Open Arms - Journey
|"Open Arms" is a song by American
Journey. It was released as a single from
their 1981 album,
Escape. Co-written by band members
Steve Perry and
Jonathan Cain, the song is a
power ballad whose lyrics are an empowering
plea to a lover to forgive past wrongdoings and agree to start anew. It
is one of the band's most recognizable radio hits and their biggest US
Billboard Hot 100 hit, reaching number
two in February 1982 and holding that position for six weeks...
Journey's recording of "Open Arms" has been described as one of the greatest love songs ever written; VH1 named the song as the greatest power ballad of all time. Mike DeGagne of AllMusic has described it as "One of rock's most beautiful ballads", which "gleams with an honesty and feel only Steve Perry could muster."
