Who’s Crying Now” is a million-selling, RIAA Gold-certified single by the American rock band Journey. It was written by Jonathan Cain and Steve Perry. It was released in 1981 as the first single from Escape and reached #4 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts. The song charted at #46 in the UK Singles Chart, and was the band’s highest charting single in the UK until “Don’t Stop Believin’” (also released as a single from the Escape album in 1981) incurred a resurgence in worldwide popularity in 2009.

The song is highlighted by Steve Perry‘s lyrics (with a vocal riff highly reminiscent of Sam Cooke) and piano playing by Jonathan Cain which segues into a bass riff by Ross Valory, and other guitars. At the end of the song, Neal Schon plays a repeating guitar solo that sounds similar to Santana. According to Schon on In the Studio with Redbeard (which devoted an entire episode to the making of Escape), originally he recorded an aggressive, experimental guitar solo which he liked but Perry and Cain did not. He then recorded a second solo, the “simplest thing he could play off the top of his head” as recalled by Perry. That one was appreciated much more by the rest of the band. Steve Smith‘s drumming is only found in the choruses and towards the end of the song.



Who’s Cryin’ Now (1981)

It begins with an unvarnished piano piece from Cain, on which Perry builds his rich tone. And Ross Vallory provides some tasteful bass lines, to underline the whole feel of the song. This is the type of song that accentuates Perry’s love for great soul singers, while it also showcases the way in which Journey stood apart from all huge selling AOR masters, and why Escape is regarded as theclassic Journey album.

Lyrics

It’s been a mystery
But still they try to see
Why something good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one-way street
The taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, somewhere
One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who’s crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who’ll be the lonely one?
One love, who’s crying now?
So many stormy nights
So many wrong or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lover’s rage
They turn another page
The fighting is worth the love they save
One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who’s crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who’ll be the lonely one?
One love, who’s crying now?
Only so many tears you can cry
‘Til the heartache is over
And now you can say your love
Will never die
Whoa ooh ooh, ooh ooh
One love, feeds the fire
One heart, burns desire
One love, who’s crying now?
Two hearts, born to run
Who’ll be the lonely one?
One love, who’s crying now?
Songwriters: Jonathan Cain / Stephen Ray Perry


“Don’t Stop Believin’” is a popular song by the American rock band Journey, originally released as a single from their 1981 album Escape. The song became a top ten hit on the US Billboard Hot 100, the UK Singles Chart and the Australian Singles Chart. Allmusic has described the song as “an anthem for the young who wanted to feel free and unrestricted”, featuring “one of the best opening keyboard riffs in rock.”
The song enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in the late 2000s, first as digital downloads became prominent, then after its use in various television shows. It is the best-selling digital song released in the 20th century.

The song reached number eight on Billboards Mainstream Rock chart, and number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song was originally released in the United Kingdom in February 1982 and managed to peak only at number 62. However, the song, never re-released in the UK, retained a cult following and re-entered the UK Singles Chart in February 2009 at number 94, due to digital downloads. On December 22, 2009, it reached number 9 in the Christmas chart, and remained in the top 10 well into 2010, hitting a peak of number 6. It has now achieved 62 weeks on the official UK Top 75, making it the 9th longest runner of all time, and 89 weeks on the Top 100.
As of September 2010, the song has sold 4,013,000 digital units in the US.

Don’t Stop Believin’ (1981)

Is there anyone on the planet who does not know this song? It has got to be one of the most exposed tracks over the past two decades or so. And, because it’s so well known, it’s very easy to lose sight of just why this is so popular. Because Don’t Stop Believin’ is a peerless example of musical genius. Everything about it is perfect – the musicality, the singing, the simple structure, the insistent melody… hell, this is not just Journey’s best song, it’s one of the truly landmark moments of the 80s.
