Journey: Don't Stop Believin' Made With Movie Clips

What's better than a cheesy 1980s hard rock pseudo-ballad playing at 1:00am? A cheesy 1980s hard rock pseudo-ballad made out of Hollywood movies' clips playing at 1:44am. Behold, Journey's Don't Stop Believin'. And sing along:

Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice just one more time
Some will win, some will lose, some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends, it goes on and on and on and on

Don't stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight people

Don't stop believing people, hold on to that feeling! [Amazon, Spotify, iTunes via Digg]



I'm probably the only one who will say this, but....

.....I HATE these kinds of videos! The kind that splices and rearranges clips of regular dialogue into the lyrics of some iconic pop song.

I get the playful spirit behind them, I do, but they are grating on the ears and sound NOTHING like the songs they are meant to lampoon. The only one, and I mean the ONLY one, that I think sounds even remotely close to the original song was the one of the various representatives of some state legislature having their speeches spliced to Rick Astley, and that only sounded decent because instead of taking individual words, (a) they took whole phrases out of the speeches instead of single words, and (b) they were in on the prank.

Sorry for the grumpiness, but there have been a ton of these videos lately.
