Songs with a Girls' Name in the Title #33

33. Oh Sherrie – Steve Perry

When Steve Perry took a break from Journey, his first single as a solo artist was this grandiose ode to a girl named Sherry. The video for this song actually seemed to poke fun at the big sound of the tune by starting as a big costume piece with castles, knights, and princesses, only to have Perry walk out on the shoot and sing the song to his girl on a big empty staircase. The song was about his actual girlfriend at the time, who also appeared in the video. It didn’t exactly launch a huge solo career for the Journey front man, but it’s become a staple of those “80’s weekends” you hear across America’s radio dials each week.
