OPEN ARMS ~ BY JOURNEY

"Open Arms" is a song originally recorded by American rock band Journey and written by Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain, two of the band's members. It is a ballad depicting the struggle of lovers who are trying to reconcile by starting anew with "open arms." It has been covered by the American pop/R&B singer Mariah Carey, Korean singer Younha, Taiwanese boyband 5566, country music singer Collin Raye, and the Contemporary R&B group Boyz II Men. "Open Arms" was used on the soundtrack to the animated Canadian film Heavy Metal (released to theatres in August 1981), and it was released as the third single from Escape in January 1982 in the United States. The song and its status as a power ballad has been remembered years following its original release. "Open Arms" is one of twelve greatest hits re-recorded by Journey featuring current lead vocalist Arnel Pineda on the second disc of their latest 2008 album Revelation.
