The rock band Journey offers us the possibility to bring in front of you today a beautiful song - Open Arms.
Journey is an American rock band from San Francisco.
The band was formed in 1973 and at that moment it was composed out of Santana, Steve Miller Band, and Frumious Bandersnatch.
They sing mainly rock music styles like arena, hard, soft, progressive, and jazz, and they have been active since 1973 until the present.
The free Open Arms piano sheet music was released in January 1982, as a single by Journey.
The song was released as part of the band’s album named Escape and also Heavy Metal: Original Film Soundtrack.
Open Arms was co-written by Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain, and produced by Kevin Elson and Mike Stone.
The song was released through Columbia records and because it’s one of the most recognizable songs, over the years it has been covered by many famous artists and it has been used also in media and popular culture.
Examples of great versions of the song are the one by Mariah Carey – 1995 and by Collin Raye – 1997.
Open Arms has a length of 3:18 minutes in its original version and is considered a power ballad and part of the soft rock music genre.
It is composed through a complex melodic line, including elements like vocals – leading and backing, keyboards, leading and rhythm guitar, bass, drums, and percussion.
The free Open Arms piano sheets are considered as one of the greatest love songs ever written and the greatest power ballad of all time, as VH1 described it.
Looking into the composition of the lyrics, the story of the song is about a couple who separated.
After the breakup, the two realized how much they love each other and decided to get back together.
