What song captures that?
It's got to be Journey. Their whole catalogue, (after Steve Perry joined the band) is full of humiliating, embarrassing, monumental, outre' and it turns out essential moments of emotion, that even if, I ever was man enough to feel that way, (admittedly a very big if), I would certainly never have the guts to express it publicly. (Separate ways indeed.) Steve Perry RULES!
"Yeah, I'd like to hear "Faithfully" by Journey. This is dedicated to the me I wish I was. Don't stop Believin'!".
The shame washes over me as I crank up the volume.
