1. "Don't Stop - Believin"
Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 11:29 PM by Jack_Dawson
Journey RULES - it was my first concert - Loverboy opened. At the Cow Palace - San Francisco.

Reminder:

He is FIFTY-NINE (59) years old. If I asked any other 59 year-olds what their favourite band was, I would be likely to hear Sha-Na-Na.

6. Clark probably still thinks Journey is around and popular
He thinks by saying "Journey" as his favorite band, he'll win over younger voters!!! :) :)

Journey? Someone please fire this man's campaign staff! This is worse than Gephardt's endorsement by Michael Bolton!

34. I heard on the contrary
Though I thought he picked out "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" as his theme song.

No link, saw it on the Clark site a few days ago.

Violent Femmes would be far preferable. Still, it could have been Kansas, or Grand Funk Railroad; we must look on the bright side of life....

15. He also mentioned
in an early campaign interview that he was a fan of the Stones & the who. I think he is just eclectic in his musical tastes.

32. If we were going by fave albums alone, I'd be a Kerry girl.
He picked "Abbey Road."

I must admit to cringing when Stewart said Clark was a Journey fan.

37. My respect for the General just keeps on growing.
Not very many men would admit that Journey is their favorite band. Though I did know a guy in college who would only have sex to Journey. If the General had said Air Supply was his favorite band, I may have changed candidates. Air Supply is the best cheesy 80s band.

50. i got nothing against journey....
.....but picking the GREATEST HITS as his favorite album is such a complete puss-out! embrace journey man!!!! ESCAPE is a perfectly decent album!!! at least in that early 80s, we'll soon be a video game way.

greatest hits albums are the biggest cop-out in musical history. i dig clark. but this might be a deal-breaker for me :)

53. I'm a rabid Clark supporter, and frankly,
Journey stinks. We used to call them REO-Styx-Journey-Wagon. But really they were more like Christopher Cross with a boner. And as long as I'm fessing up, I also hate Clark bars, Cheetos, and the anti-flag-burning amendment.

But Outkast is pretty cool.

59. I stand with Clark - If you hate Journey DO NOT READ :)
My favorite band is Van Halen, but Journey of the late 70's is my number two (thats before they got too silly folks).

Wheel in the Sky
Lovin Touchin Sqeezein
City by the bay ? (not sure about title)

basically the first 3 albums rocked.

So you go General!
