I wanted to begin this day on a positive note and luckily, Journey’s going to help me do just that with Be Good To Yourself. This song was written at a time when singer Steve Perry was going through an array of personal problems and he was also dealing with the failing health of his mother. Though Perry may not have written the song, he did say that he needed a life-affirming anthem to sing. Keyboardist Jonathan Cain came through with Be Good To Yourself.
The video was a performance clip. That was always the best format for Journey during the Steve Perry years, as anyone who has seen the video for Separate Ways can attest.
