I have Bon Jovi on my ipod too, old stuff and new stuff. My sis~in~law's Grandmother is his Grandmother's sister. They are some kind of distant cousins.

What a great and fitting theme for your Friday Flashback! Nice transition from your previous posts!

Oh my gosh! AWESOME memories...What a wonderful collection of 'older' songs. Now, I know why my mother always felt like she was 'dating' herself with her favorite selection of songs...

Bon Jovi rocks!! Good choices. I downloaded Living on a Prayer the other day and my husband said something about me reliving the past. Thanks for sharing!

Did DD perform 'Save A Prayer' when your injured self and I attended their show in Orlando? I can't recall.

If I wasn't so lazy and shiftless, I'd just google the set list for that night.

Hey Mike, I don't remember. I do remember that it was the first show of their North American tour that year, and they were still ironing out a lot of kinks including how to end some of the songs on the encore.

Amy asked about the injury and best I can remember, I had an ingrown toenail operated on (well, an in-office procedure) and so I was a little gimpy that night. We still made it to the Sapphire afterwards to see Vaughn play though, so it was a good night all the way through.

Yep, good times.

Did you also tell her about the cute little Asian spinner and the hot tall blonde who stood in front of us, shrieking a lot & buying us (or, at least me...don't recall what you had) drinks?

I was thinking about this last night because of your choices and had to post again ~ when I was in grade school (it was a Catholic School) we had a talent show. Most of the "acts" were just people dancing and singing to a tape...the principal absolutly OUTLAWED Livin' on a Prayer. No one was allowed to sing or dance to that song.

A few years later (actually quite a few) I was subbing at that school and they were getting ready for the Talent show again - the teacher in charge showed me the program and I gasped! There were 2 Eminem songs on there! One was The Real Slim Shady! I couldn't believe it! I asked her if she had listed to the songs...she hadn't. They ended up doing Gangster's Paradise instead ~ still a horrible choice for grade school kids!

My how things have changed, huh?
