Default Is it normal for Hits 1 to play "Journey"?

I just happened to be scrolling through the channels tonight and noticed Journey's Don't stop believing was playing on Hits 1. Is that the norm or did I just catch them at a weird time? I was actually hopeing they had buried that song somehere long ago.

That's funny you mention that. I was wondering about the song as well as I saw it was like the #8 downloaded song on iTunes the other day. I guess it is being rereleased.

I never knew that the Journey song Don't Stop Beliving was even this popular again. It goes to show you that the older songs are being liked by the younger generation, witch is a great thing to see IMO. I always have enjoyed Journey's music they are a great band.

Journey isn't even on the regular charts.

I don't know why they're using iTunes to determine hit status since iTunes' userbase can be very ecclectic and has certain biases that don't exist elsewhere. For instance, any song used in an Apple ad always sells really well on iTunes for the next month.

That's good to hear I guess. I was a little worried that Sirius went off the deep end.

I don't mind Journey but that song was sooo overplayed in the 80s. It's one of my childhood memories that I'd like to forget. lol

I swear Sirius Hits 1 looks at iTunes top 100. Cast of Rent's "Seasons of Love" was on last night and that was in the top 10 of itunes a couple of days ago. Of course as mentioned earlier Journey was also up there a couple of days, and there has been more instances of this.

I heard that too on Sunday around lunchtime, I was like WTF?
Thought maybe the music on Broadway's Best computer got swapped onto the Hits 1 Feed.

The reason the song has popped up is a movie version of the Broadway play is soon to be released with guess what? A soundtrack including the song " Seasons of Love"

Journey "Don't Stop Believing" was also on a new Family Guy episode. It just doesn't sound right on Hits 1. Neither does that Cast of Rent song.

I'm a Journey fan so this is quite interesting. This wouldn't be the first time that an old song got a 2nd chance. Look at Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen after it was played in Waynes World. I'm sure there are several instances of such a rebirth.

I think using Itunes top downloads as a method of expanding the playlist is a good idea. But maybe if hits 1 was my favorite channel I might feel different.

Difference of degree, but:

Why is Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy" getting heavy play now, about 6 years since it's initial release? Is it on some hot soundtrack or something?

Music is a bizzre thing. Tv is a bizzare thing. Its called Pop Culture. Every 25 years or so Old is New. Get Ready 70's' Hard Rock is coming Back. I'm so frinking scard.

During the 90's the Village People were playing to sell-out, now they can't get arrested. (Well, actually they can, it was the COP believe it or not!!)
