    The Top 10 wishes a happy 60th birthday to Steve Perry. Yes, the former Journey lead singer is now a sectagenarian.

    And while all of us Journey fans now feel that much older, here's a look at the greatest of the greatest hits for a band Rolling Stone once called "a dead end for San Francisco area rock."

    1. "Don't Stop Believing" (Thanks to The Sopranos, it's entrenched in our pop culture. It's also the most downloaded song on iTunes. Seriously)
    2. "Open Arms"
    3. "Lights"
    4. "Faithfully"
    5. "Separate Ways"
    6. "Any Way You Want It"
    7. "I'll Be Alright Without You"
    8. "Wheel In The Sky"
    9. "Send Her My Love"
    10. "Girl Can't Help It"

    Did we sing one of these tunes in Nashville?

    I like the list but rank "Separate Ways" No. 2 and jump "Any Way You Want It" to No. 4

    No fan of Journey but "Stone In Love" is a damn good song.

    I know they had three albums before Mr. Perry came on board. Word has it that these guys can really play their instruments ... weren't they sort of prog pre-Perry?

    Jonathan Cain, the keyboard player, came in at around the same time as Perry. He had been with John Waite in the Babys, and of course they teamed up again later in Bad English.

    Just got the impression, from the little scraps here and there I've picked up, that these guys were a really good band before Steve Perry came along. But Perry's involvement stirred up the pot (i.e., sales), hence why their best-known work was when he was there, with little said before or after.
