"You should've been gone!"
Wow. The world stops when that line drops.
I like how Steve Perry does more yelling than singing

That is exactly how he sounds and at one point it's like he doesn't even know the lyrics.
I just have never liked how he "sang" this.
I changed my mind. Heart and soul is where it's at, I love the way he sings it:)
I just recently found Perry's album with this and several other great songs. Listening to it brings back plenty of memories. I've always thought that this song meant that a boyfriend was being a real pain to his girlfriend (Sherrie), and yet she stayed with him, even when he thought she should leave because of him. Yup, great song.
This is about two people whose love overcomes the obstacles in their relationship.
This was the first single from Journey lead singer Steve Perry's first solo album. The song is about his real-life girlfriend at the time, Sherrie Swafford, who also appeared in the songs music video.
Sherrie, your name rules! Steve Perry is awesome w/ or w/o Journey. This is my favorite song by him alone. Gotta love the synth intro at the beginning. That's what I liked about Journey anyway.
I agree, pianoman. This isn't my fav song by him (Foolish Heart is my fav by him solo). I thought this song was about his gf at the time or exgf.. whichever. That's cool to be named after a song :-)
This song doesn't mean a whole lot to me, besides its significance in the movie basketball, trey and matt, really know how to get the laughs.
Its obvious that he wrote this song for a girl named Sherrie.
Song hits home for me...

According to the old Pop-Up Video he actually got Sherrie to play herself in the video. Shortly afterward she was gone.

About Oh Sherrie
Not to be confused with Sherry by The Four Seasons."Oh Sherrie" is a song written by American singer Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum, Craig Krampf, and Bill Cuomo. It was recorded and released on Perry's first solo album Street Talk in 1984, which he released while still a member of Journey. The song is often regarded as an "honorary" Journey song, being credited to the band on several hit compilation albums and in other media, largely due to its resemblance to the band's trademark sound, as well as their performances of the song on the Raised on Radio Tour, which proved to be Perry's live swansong with the band. The song is written in F major. The song was Perry's biggest hit as a solo artist and written for his then-girlfriend Sherrie Swafford, who also appeared in the music video. The song hit number three on the pop chart and number one on the rock chart in the United States, partly aided in its success by a music video released to promote the song, which received heavy airplay on MTV. more »
