Soulful Saturday - Bon Jovi

In celebration of Jon Bon Jovi's 50th birthday yesterday. This 80's "hair band" has found a way to stay together, make good music, and remain sexy (Jon, I'm looking at YOU!) Oh the big blue eyes, the sandy blonde hair that mysteriously covers his face when the songs get REALLY good!! Yes!! In today's day and age, Jon has married (and remained married) his high school sweetheart, has 4 kids and is a philanthropist. So, he is a family man, gives back to his community, acts (remember his stint on Ally McBeal?), sings love songs, plays guitar... and looks like that? He needs to have a twin who is my age (yes, I know that is impossible... don't shit on my dreams, people!)

The hair, the body, the bad ass songs and the weepy ballads. I love it all. From the days where their hairstyles used Aqua-Net like their lives depended on it and spandex was the fabric of choice (let's not EVER do that again, please) to being refined rockers today, Bon Jovi has given a plethora of great music for me to love and pass on. Here are a few selections.

*I will love you, baby, always.
*I'll be there till the stars don't shine; till the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme. I know when I die, you'll be on my mind.

Bed of Roses
*I wanna be as close as the Holy Ghost is...
*Now as you close your eyes, know I'll be thinking about you.
*Tonight, I won't be alone, but you know that don't mean I'm not lonely...

I'll Be There For You
*You left me drowning in my tears and you won't save me anymore.
*I can promise tomorrow, but I can't buy back yesterday.
*I'd steal the sun from the sky for you. Words can't say what LOVE can do, I'll be there for you.

Thank You For Loving Me (with tacky Richie Sambora)
*Lock the door, leave the world outside... All I have to give to you are these 5 words when I... thank you for loving me

This Ain't a Love Song
*It made me so mad 'cause I wanted it bad for us, baby; Now it's sad that whatever we had ain't worth saving
