Yea you are right, Keep The Faith wasn't too bad. It had some moments. These Days was when Jovi really went off the deep end and became a band for housewives :lol:

I miss the New Jersey/Slippery Bon Jovi that rocked.

Iris is my favorite song ever. 8-) That guitar solo is absolutely brilliant.

There are no songs like this anymore! So glad that I have lived through the 1990s! One of the best songs I've ever heard! :D :D

I do enjoy this, but the complete overkill probably ruinied it for me. Even as a kid, I knew when I heard too much. :lol:

Great song. i love Leona's remake but this is the original................ I wonder if this song was released with a physical copy, would it have been #1 for 18 weeks+.?.?

Same thing here, I liked it at first, then it felt like it would never stop playing

This song is nice, nothing more in my opinion, even though it wasn't a big UK hit, I remember hearing this all of the time. :o

This is the type of song where the original will never be beaten by any remake or cover attempt.

Agree, it just can't be done. It's too good! The only one that comes close is by Leona Lewis, very moving rendition.

I haven't seen it yet but I'm assuming somebody did it on Britain's Got Talent.

This will be its FIFTH appearance on the UK chart! It was top 3 only 18 months ago! :roll:

^Exactly. I loved the song when it first came out. It was already big due to X Factor or BGT before (can't remember which). It NEVER leaves the iTunes top 500! It is always there! It only needs a slight push and wham! it's back in the top 75! Enough already! :lol:

I think it's one of these songs that people delete off the i-pods after a short while. Then they hear it again on something and go I've got that on my i-pod. Then try and find it and can't so off they go and download it again.
