Video Review: Steve Perry “Foolish Heart”

In a darkened auditorium, Steve Perry walks to a chair. Two spotlights shine on him as he sits down and sings into the mounted microphone. The camera moves from the back of the floor seats, onto the stage and beside Perry as he sings.

He sighs and closes his eyes as he continues to sing. The camera pans to the last aisle of the floor seats.

Rating: 2/5

Steve Perry shakes his head and writes a note on the notepad. He shows it to his girlfriend who says she understands. He drinks some tea and points to his study. With notepad in hand, he sits down at the chair. He gazes out of the window and reads a book. His girlfriend peeks through the door to check on him.

A few hours later, he goes to the kitchen and grabs some food. He writes a note, saying he’s going to rehearse at the theater. He warms up his voice during the drive and then walks on stage. While he sings, he thinks of his past heartbreaks. Although he loves his girlfriend, he feels like they have a limited time together.

He returns home, his voice hoarse and tries to talk. His girlfriend shushes him as she watches television. She tells him he still needs to rest his vocal cords. He sits beside her and says nothing. It’s as though they have already started to grow apart.
