Any Way You Want It is a song by Journey

Steve Perry and Neal Schon wrote this and played it for the rest of the band on their tour bus, with Schon strumming on acoustic guitar and Perry singing. Keyboard player Gregg Rolie said, "It was pretty obvious it could be done real quick."

The liner notes to Journey's Time3 compilation explain: "In the studio, Rolie tried a mellotron on the number and the instrument proved defective. Co-producer Geoff Workman managed to correct the sound somewhat and, once doubled with Rolie's regular organ, the combination created a unique sound which, coupled with the stacked background vocals, gave the song a kind of celestial ring."

Gregg Rolle's organ was double-tracked to create the keyboard effect. He was going to play a Mellotron, but it malfunctioned in the studio.

This was used in the movie Caddyshack. Rodney Dangerfield dances to it using the sound system in his golf bag.

This was featured at the end of Charlie's Angles 2: Full Throttle during a blooper reel with credits.
