And The Answer Is…

Bon Jovi!

Mind you, as one commenter proclaimed, they have used the talk box before, but the guitar solo on this track was way over the top.

As for whether I really like this song…

Ironically, yes. Personally, no. Bon Jovi of the ‘00’s will never ever match Bon Jovi of the ‘80’s. However I wouldn’t shun a cut-up, blog-house re-edit of this track if they took out some of the retardo lyrics.

Has anybody read about his new album? It’s apparently “Bon Jovi goes on a road trip to Nashville”, complete with a duet with Leanne Rimes. Blech. Reviews say the first half is all southern bar rock, a la ZZ Top, like the quiz song, incidentally titled We Got It Going On. Then the second half is all power ballads (hence the duet with Ms. Rimes).

Sounds horrible. But no doubt will go multi-platinum as Jon and Richie are invited to perform on every Country Music Awards show (and have you noticed there are as many of them as there are for pop music?) on TV.

You like it ironically? No. You either like something or you do not. The irony is a shield against admitting that you like a Bon Jovi song.

ironically: like it enought to dance to drunk with friends in a bar, but would never purchase or play alone at home.

really like something: purchase, play anytime, even embarrasingly to friends.

i like that song the first way, but as mentioned good remix would go miles....

whats the definition of irony terry? and does liking a song in a certain capacity fulfill that definition?

and please don't tell me everyone defines irony in their own way. thats some SCCC bullshit.

according to the oxford american dictionary:

the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

i thought i made my irony clear by calling the guitar solo "brilliant" in my first post.

alas, i think my popularity as a potential candidate for future music editor has waned. and only 48 hours at that!

i never went to college (SCCC?) so i hope that oxford american definition isn't too bullshit-y for you.
