    Songfacts®

    America member Dewey Bunnell wrote this song. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times October 1, 2006, he explained: "It was 1963 when I was in seventh grade, we got a flat tire and we're standing on the side of the road and I was staring at this highway sign. It said 'Ventura' on it and it just stuck with me. It was a sunny day and the ocean there, all of it."
    Regarding the lyrics, "Seasons crying no despair, alligator lizards in the air," Bunnell said: "The clouds. It's my brother and I standing there on the side of the road looking at the shapes of clouds while my dad changed the tire."

    There's no official "Ventura Highway," but Ventura is a county in California, and Highway 101 runs through it.

    Janet Jackson interpolated this on her 2001 hit "Someone To Call My Lover." She had never heard "Ventura Highway," but loved the idea when her producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis played it for her and suggested they use it as the basis for a song.

    I've always been very critical of male rock vocalists...especially if you hear them live and they have nothing compared to the studio surrounding(Vince Neil of Motley Crue comes to mind). I've heard so many new good songs ruined for me the moment some yahoo comes in and starts bellowing.
    Cornell is one of my favorites...along with Soundgarden as a whole(pre-reunion). I had the privilege of seeing them live for the first time back in '90 touring with Voivod in a smallish crowded Mesa, AZ venue. I'd never heard of them. I went to see Voivod. Blew my mind sonically.


    More. Live. Five stars


    PS: I thank the Gods of music that grunge came in and killed the 80's hairband/glam/pop rock when it did. Skid Row? Poison? Warrent? Bon Jovi? Crue? GnR? All that tired crap. Buh Bye...
