Friday Mellow: Lights by Journey

The Wayback Machine found this Journey classic from 1978 written by Steve Perry and Neal Schon. Funny thing about this song is that Steve Perry originally wrote the song about Los Angeles. But when he joined Journey he decided San Francisco was a better match. It was released as a single in 1978 and was only modestly successful reaching 68 on the Billboard Hot 100. It became more popular later and one of their most popular songs. You will often hear it at San Francisco Giants games and Steve Perry has actually performed it live on occasion (game 2, 2010 World Series in San Francisco for one).
