In the past week I’ve seen two new Hollywood movies featuring songs by the rock group Journey (Yes Man and Bedtime Stories). It got me wondering how many movies from the past year have included Journey songs. It seems like a lot.
I recall The Comebacks from 2007 had an amusing Don’t Stop Believin’ musical moment. But this is really enough. Any further use of Journey in a Hollywood movie is officially camp.
Thankfully the last movie I saw, Milk, didn’t include a single Journey song, even though Journey enjoyed their first heyday in 1978 – the most significant year of Harvey Milk’s life.
Update: Who’s Crying Now by Journey is played in Monsters vs. Aliens.
