Well, we got the weather as promised. It's not really bad, just cold and rainy but we did have enough snow to cover the ground. That's enough to make supermarket shelves barren here in the south. Now that we got the weather report out of the way, it's time to get to what we all came for. The Album O' The Week. We're going to stay with our earlier post theme of Bon Jovi for this AOTW. New Jersey was the album right after the world was taken over by Slippery When Wet. The first single, Bad Medicine, took off right where Jon and boys left off--hard hitting blue collar arena rock. Lay Your Hands On Me is probably the hardest rocker, and it's good adrenaline music. It's the stuff Rocky would have trained too if we would have come around a decade later. Living in Sin is Bon Jovi's most underrated song, sung with conviction and passion. If you pay attention to the song, you'll agree: "Hey, we don't need to be married to live together and fuck like rabbits in non-christian ways." He spoke to the depths of my soul on that one. I'll be there for you was played at every middle and high school dance in the world (the Chinese translation was tough, I'll bet) and was a staple on MTV. The hidden gem on this record is 99 In The Shade. Crank it!!
