Song of the Day #4,275: ‘Send Her My Love’ – Journey

Journey’s Frontiers claims the 13th spot on my list of 1983 albums. Like all of the albums toward the bottom of this list, Frontiers earns its spot on the strength of a few songs.

In this case, those songs are ‘Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),’ ‘Send Her My Love’ and especially the lovely road song ‘Faithfully.’ Solid tracks such as ‘Chain Reaction’ and ‘After the Fall’ flesh out the album nicely. Power ballads performed in Steve Perry’s terrific voice — that’s always a winning formula.

For me, the quintessential Journey album will always by 1981’s Escape, but Frontiers fits neatly just behind it.

[Verse 1]
It’s been so long
Since I’ve seen her face
You say she’s doing fine
I still recall
A sad cafe
How it hurt so bad to see her cry
I didn’t want to say good-bye

[Chorus]
Send her my love, memories remain
Send her my love, roses never fade
Send her my love

[Verse 2]
The same hotel, the same old room
I’m on the road again
She needed so much more
Than I could give
We knew our love could not pretend
Broken hearts can always mend

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Calling out her name I’m dreaming
Reflections of a face I’m seeing
It’s her voice
That keeps on haunting me

    I’m sure I heard all of this album at some point when it came out, but only the hits you mentioned made a lasting impression. Oh, but what great hits they were!
