Flashback Friday - Bon Jovi overload

Bon Jovi. They've been a part of my musical life since the mid-80's and still have some high play on my iPod. They also stand as about the 3rd most seen in concert for me. They're electric, addicting, hot, hard-rockin', beautiful-balladin' boys who have stayed together almost 30 years. Obviously, Jon's branched out - solo stuff, country, acting - but he's always stayed true to Richie, David, Tico and Bryan.

I was unhappy when he cut his hair but there's was no denying he still had the looks and the talent - big hair or not. (did you see him in Moonlight & Valentino OR Little City - awesome) Not sure I can pick a fave song of one of my favorite groups ever but I think I'm more into the older stuff from the 80's and early 90's. Back in my younger days (lol) my go-to Karaoke song was "Born to be My Baby" - great song to belt out. As for the rest of the band, I've always totally crushed on Richie Sambora as well - I have Richie solo albums too - though the poor man has been through the ringer over the past few years with his personal life. I always thought Jon and Richie had a pretty awesome bromance - yeah, even back then I was thinking those thoughts. :P

Anyhow, I digress (as usual) so now I give you... the fabulousity that is Bon Jovi.

And now

I totally dare you to not have a chuckle over this video, and WOW, all that spandex. 
Remember it was 1984. :)

OMG! The hair and the cuteness.
(have I ever told you I'd totally go back to 80's hair - lol)

Love this song so hard. Great for cowboy-writing inspiration, too.

Cool video - recording process. Total Jon/Richie bromance too. LMAO.
I cannot sit still when this song comes on.

Shall we slow it down a bit.
Bon Jovi ballads are some of my fave songs ever - this was one of my wedding songs.
Favorite part of this song starts at 2:13 and at 3:30
(And Jon, I totally want that blue shirt)

In case you haven't heard Richie's solo stuff, here's one. I love it.





I have to admit I like this song and the video even though Bon Jovi's country stuff isn't really my thing.



I was lucky enough to see this song live and wow, just wow.

Okay - yeah, you know I'm always only going to post 1 or 2 vids but when that OCD kicks in and I hear all these great tunes again, I just gotta keep going. I think it's going to be a total Bon Jovi day around here - they are just so mood-lifting to me. Have a good weekend and Keep the Faith y'all.


  1. What a great post to kick-off the weekend! They look like such babies to me know in that Runaway vid, LOL.

  2. I was in a meh mood when I started but now I'm kinda bouncy. :) The Runaway video is so funny to watch. Lol. Thanks for the comment.

  3. Bon Jovi has always been a favorite band of mine. These songs (videos) bring back lot's of good memories. I met my husband around the time they were really getting popular. I also had a good friend at work who loved the band. We had big crushes on Richie Sambora.

    Speaking of big. My friend and I definitely had 80's hair. :D

    Thanks for all the videos K-lee. You never disappoint. Have a great weedend! :)

  4. I don't want to know what a weedend is. I meant weekend! :D
