Good afternoon fellow citizens, and what a glorious day it is!
I’m feeling incredibly inspired today. I have resumed playing the trumpet with the Reno Pops (3 years later), received a new rockin’ (literally) bike for my birthday to carve up some gnarly trails in the hills, and am hot off the trails of a wonderful visit with the parental units. Plus, fall has arrived!! YES!!!
In a mild genius of stroke (heh), I have decided to begin a Journey cover band (but not really). Journey is one of my favorite bands, right behind AC/DC, Def Leppard, and Iron Maiden/Van Halen/Metallica. Regardless, Journey is completely awesome!
Without further ado I present the next cover set for the new Journey cover band: Expedition! [I included the original songs and/or a brief description as needed]
Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeegee-in’ – A sad story about a window cleaner who loses his wife due to his obsession with clean panes of glass. She just couldn’t compete with the soapy suds.

Feeling That Cray – A high school cheerleader goes on a crazy rampage when the high school quarterback refuses to ask her to prom. [Note: per Urban Dictionary, the source of all things true and right, cray is defined as “No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative. It gets people going.”]

Be Good To Everyone (But Yourself) – You know the type. The person who cares for the wants and needs of others, only to burn themselves out because they forgot to prioritize themselves over the others. Time to start practicing what you preach!

Don’t Stop Retrievin’ – A Golden Retriever in search of a fulfilling life comes to terms with what will be his greatest accomplishments – fetching the ball! No matter how tired or worn out he is feeling, he always finds great joy in chasing the little green orb that his master throws for him. And the adventure goes on, and on, and on… and he won’t stop, he won’t stop believing!
