B is for Bon Jovi

Don't worry I will have other music in this A-Z Challenge other than Rock! 

Bon Jovi's sound speaks to the soul.  It is rare for me not to like a Bon Jovi song.   I remember the exact day I first got my love for Bon Jovi.   I was riding in a car to a babysitters house and "You give Love a Bad Name."  Played on the radio.  It was an instantaneous love that built within my heart.  Soon I was Slippery When Wet, and going down in a Blaze of Glory. 

So what is my favorite Bon Jovi song????

Going back to the time that I first discovered Bon Jovi . . .
You Give Love a Bad Name!!!!!!!  Shot through the heart and your to blame! You give love a bad name.  I play my part and you play your game, You give love a bad name.

My least favorite Bon Jovi Song is . . .   Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars

The Bon Jovi Song that inspires me creatively and in life is . . .

It's My Life.    The song hit me at a time in my life where I was at a crossroads with where I wanted to take it.  I had been in a relationship that was both detrimental to my health and my mind.   The lyrics of the chorus took my mind on a road,  and for once I finally believed that I could live my life without that person in it anymore. There are many, many Bon Jovi songs that I absolutely love but this one is the one that changed a part of me forever.

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(it’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

  1. Do you know the song (from the same album, if memory serves me) that struck me?

    "Just Older"

    I was turning 40, and of course, feeling old...that lyric softened the blow a little...
