Don't Stop Believing.
When I was in high school "piano lab," this kid named Duane and I tossed out our prescribed sheet music for days and worked on Journey's Don't Stop Believing. It was a lot trickier than it sounded, but we worked our way through it, and we beamed with pride. I see you snickering. A little jealous, maybe?
Believe it or not, I don't play a lot of Journey nowadays, but this cover by Petra Haden brought back that memory, and also made me hope that Petra would do a Journey cover album the way she did The Who Sell Out.
