Retro of the day: Journey

Faithfully” is a song by the band Journey, and the second single from their album Frontiers. The song is a power ballad and was written by Jonathan Cain. It peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving the band their second consecutive top twenty hit from Frontiers. While the song was relatively successful on the charts, it has gone on to become one of their most recognizable songs, and has enjoyed lasting popularity.
The song describes the relationship of a “music man” on the road. The difficulties of raising and maintaining a family, two strangers having to fall in love again, and staying faithful while touring are brought up. However, he suggests that he gets the “joy of rediscovering” her, and insists “I’m forever yours… Faithfully.”
