Bon Jovi's Music is Timeless

The first time I heard rock 'n roll magic via Jon, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres, better known as Bon Jovi, I was about six or seven years old. Nearly thirty years later, I still can't resist singing along every time I hear, "You give Love a Bad Name." I have played my Slippery When Wet CD so often that my nine-year-old daughter can sing along to just about any song on the album, even though it was created two decades before she was born.

Why Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet is Iconic

Slippery when Wet is Bon Jovi's third album. It is memorable by so many people who grew up in the 80s because it was the first time people started to notice just how good this rock 'n roll band is. Are you wondering where the title came from? I would like to tell you to get your mind out of the gutter; however, the band admits they came up with the name after visiting a strip club in Vancouver.

Bon Jovi's Most Popular Songs are on this Album

I have many Bon Jovi CDs, but this one will always be my favorite. Not only does it include the best Bon Jovi song every made "You give Love a Bad Name," but it also includes "Livin' on a Prayer," "Wanted: Dead or Alive," and "Never Say Goodbye." If you think I'm alone in my love for Bon Jovi, you would be wrong. According to Wikipedia, Slippery When Wet has sold more than 28 million records since being released in 1987 and is considered to be Bon Jovi's best album to date. In fact, this iconic album is included in the infamous book, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before you Die.

      Jon Bon Jovi is an extremely interesting person to hear interviewed. His acting abilities and charitable work are commendable. My fav song is "Who Says You Can't Go Home" (feat. Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland).

      @serendipity831: I'm glad you liked it. My dad made sure I grew up listening to classic rock, and I wanted to make sure I passed it down to my daughter. After all, I wanted my daughter to know what good music really is!
