Song 2: "Be Good to Yourself"

I apologized, when I started this single-song feature way back when, for beginning on such a melancholy note. So, I'm making up for it by shining the spotlight on "Be Good to Yourself" by Journey. Like any red-blooded, god-fearing American, I love Journey, and they have several songs that are better than this one, but in my entire collection of music -- 6,761 songs on iTunes and several hundred others laying around -- this one stands out. Amid a surplus of navel-gazing, gently strummed, self-recriminating, love-besotted tenderness and regret, bleated by men and women alike, here's Steve Perry singing at the top of his voice: "Be good to yourself when nobody else will."
