I have this guy's greatest hits CD, and I think it's awesome! Well, I don't know if there are any serious omissions, but I love the songs that are on it. This guy is so underrated, in my area. There's one guy in my school's jazz band who's a die-hard fan, but everybody else hates Bon Jovi. And he just doesn't get enough radio play in my area. I hear some of his songs every once in a blue moon, but I've never heard any post-1988 Bon Jovi songs on the radio. And there's still a lot that confuses me about him. Is his now album any good? Are any of his post-1994 albums any good? Is Bon Jovi the singer's name or just the name of the band? What does "Bon Jovi" mean? Do you like Bon Jovi? I hope there are some Bon Jovi lovers on this forum who can answer these questions.

Bon Jovi is from New Jersey, meaning I'm supposed to like him. I've never heard a song of his that actively bothers me but I've also never heard any that I actively care about.

You should get the album Crush, It's pretty good, especially the song It's My Life.

Hmm. It's My Life. I might've heard that song before. I think it is post-1994.
That's good.

After 1994 they released a few albums: THESE DAYS, somehow near 1996, I'm not sure; CRUSH, in 2000 I think (I have this, it's a great album, in their style); and BOUNCE, maybe in 2002/2003, I'm not sure. My sister has that one, I only know the singles, and I like them. I have the GH of Bon Jovi too, like you do, pretty fly, and I love it. They're good, IMO, and one of my favorite bands. Oh, they've also released an album with live songs, called "One Wild Night", I think... but search on google for more details! But, if you like them, I definitely advise you to get Crush. The song "Say it isn't so" is great too. But the whole Cd is fantastic.

Well, it's an important band (or at least was) in the music scenario. The best of is cool, as some of their old stuff!

Oh, a little off topic now: in your avatar you look a bit like Sandra Nasic from Guano Apes. Do you know her? They're a german band.

Maybe I'll get that album sometime then.

No, have no idea who she is.

OK, no problem. If you want to give it a try, download a few songs from them "Big in Japan", "Rain", "Lords of the boards". Those are good songs. Trust me :o

Uh... "What do I know about Bon Jovi?" Well, the singer's got very white teeth. And about the name.... It's like Dio, I think - it's the last name of the singer.

Say It Ain't So? Is that a Weezer cover? This may sound like a stupid question, but I always get interested when I see duplicated song titles, even though it's probably just a coincidence.

No it isn't a stupid question! Honestly, I have no idea. But the song is called "Say It Isn't So", not "Say It Ain't So"... I don't think it's a weezer cover, mostly because of the lyrics, they're not weezer kind of style lol
