Song Of The Week: Oh Sherrie

It has to be said that I love me some Steve Perry. He rocketed to fame with the band Journey and left the band to pursue a solo career. I don't think he was quite as successful on his own but he did have a great hit with Oh Sherrie. I love singing along to this in my car (usually involves me screaming at the top of my lungs - "YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE"), and just found out a fun fact that he gave his girlfriend at the time Sherrie Swafford (who also stars in the video) partial royalties for that song. So even if their love didn't last a lifetime, you can guarantee that she has a special place for Steve in her pocketbook.

I LOVE Steve Perry!! Seriously one of my absolute favorite singers. His greatest hits album is an all time fave of mine. Foolish Heart and Oh Sherrie get me every time. How kind of him to give his ex royalties.

that's funny that he gave her partial royalties- what a cool guy. Guess that's why I named my cat Steve Perry. No lie. :) Seriously- what a badass.
