The MP3 album deal of the deal over at Amazon today is a Journey‘s Greatest Hits for only $3.99.
This deal is valid for today, Friday, December 31, 2010, but chances are it will last another day as well â€” though, you shouldnâ€™t wait just in case.
The greatest hits collection has 16 songs on it, many of which you’ll recognize as chart toppers from the 1980s: “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Open Arms,” “Separate Ways,” “Who’s Crying Now,” “Faithfully,” “Only The Young,” and “Ask The Lonely.” Their popular tunes from the 1970s are also represented with “Wheel In The Sky,” “Lights,” and “Any Way You Want It” (ok, that last one was from early 1980, but it still had the 1970’s line-up and sound).
Damn they have a lot of hits!!! All good stuff, I promise. I just rattled off more than enough tunes to justify shelling out $4 for this album, especially since if you were to purchase the songs individually it would be $.99 per song.
If you’re not familiar with Journey, now’s your chance to give them a listen. If you’re a fan of TRON, the band had two songs in that film; also, “Separate Ways,” which is on this hits album, was in the recently released sequel TRON: Legacy. Take my word for it, they’re a great rock band, even better live (I’ve seen them live many, many times). This album, especially at the discounted price, is worth getting.
