'What song is that, Dad?" I was sitting under a tent last week with family members after my son's high school graduation when he asked about the classic rock tune that was playing during his class video. I listened to the chugging intro and pegged the band as Journey but misidentified the title as "On and On. " After a few bars I corrected myself, "It's called 'Don't Stop Believin'. " So it was eerie when, two nights later, the same vintage power ballad provided the final notes for The Sopranos . Pretty cheesy choice for a series that always has been canny in its use of music.
