Journey: Anyway You Want It

The latest commercial from State Farm is hilarious. It has the claims rep and the customer going through the lyrics of Journey’s “Anyway You Want It” and having a flashback to the 80s with a little Journey moment. “Any Way You Want It” opened Journey’s “Departure” album and was the first single released from this 1980 classic album.

It is said that the vocal and guitar interplay was inspired by the late Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy. The song was often used to close out Journey concerts. The single only peaked at #23, but that didn’t stop this Steve Perry/Neal Schon composition from being one of their best known tunes. The album fared much better by peaking at #8.
