bon jovi songs i love: wanted dead or alive, you give love a bad name, living on a prayer and it's my life. can you recommend any other ones?
I have been listening to their entire discography since before I was even born. That’s not a joke, my mum used to play their songs to me in the womb and she went to see them live whilst pregnant with me, I have…many a song rec. I’ll just give my personal favourites from each album:
Bon Jovi- Runaway, Breakout and Shot Through The Heart
7800° Fahrenheit- In and Out of Love, The Price of Love, Tokyo Road
Slippery When Wet- I love this whole album to be honest but, Raise Your Hands and Never Say Goodbye are great. Also everything that you mentioned but It’s My Life, is from this album so definitely check it out.
New Jersey- an iconic album, i love this album, Lay Your Hands on Me, Blood on Blood, Born to be my Baby and Wild is the Wind are my favourites on there.
Keep the Faith- I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, Bed of Roses, In These Arms and Blame It On The Love of Rock & Roll
These Days- this was the best Jon era and no one will tell me otherwise, the These Days 1995 tour look? Hella. Anyway, songs. Hey God is my favourite Bon Jovi song and potentially just my favourite song, These Days and Something to Believe In.
Crush- This is the album that It’s My Life is from and was also the first tour I ever went to. I went my whole life thinking it was the Bounce tour but turns out i was living a lie. But i love Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars, I Got The Girl, One Wild Night and She’s a Mystery.
Bounce- So straight up the entire Bounce album is crazy good. It was written straight after 9/11 so it’s about standing up and uniting in the face of adversity, so v relevant rn. Undivided, Joey and The Distance are personal favourites. (Also, All About Loving You is 110% a stevebucky song but that’s a different conversation altogether) Oh and also, Hook Me Up.
Have a Nice Day- Welcome to Wherever You Are, Last Cigarette and Complicated
Lost Highway- I love the title track, We Got It Going On, Any Other Day and Summertime
The Circle- We Weren’t Born To Follow, Superman Tonight and Work for the Working Man
What About Now- Because We Can, Army of Thieves and That’s What The Water Made Me
Burning Bridges- okay to be fair you can probably skip this album, it was weak but like they’ve been going since 1984, they’re allowed one less than stellar album it’s fine
This House Is Not For Sale- Knockout, Title Track and Scars on this Guitar.
Also listen to Blaze of Glory, as in the album not just the song, it’s just Jon but it’s probably one of my favourite albums ever
