Livin’ On A Prayer… so the other day my husband and I were working in the yard.
Him: Can you put on something good?
Me: Like what?
Him: Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Aerosmith…
(Queue up Livin’ On A Prayer) but it kept glitching out and going back to the beginning.)
Me: I hope my IPOD isn’t crapping out.
Husband: You’ve got the controller in your back pocket. Everytime that music plays you start bouncing around and your ass is contolling it. Sit still.
(Not sure which was funnier to me, that I was controlling Jon with my ass or that he thought I could sit still during Livin’ On A Prayer? Don’t think so ;)

the other night I was contemplating purchasing tickets for Bon Jovi’s upcoming Because We Can Tour. I was trying to decide if it was worth the 500 dollars I was about to spend for me and my mom to see them. And then I thought about Prayer live. I thought about how when it starts (and it’s usually saved for the encore these days) all you hear is Jon’s foot keeping tempo echo through out the arena. And then he starts singing acapella “we gotta hold on to what we got” and before he can finish the line the whole place is singing along. And I do mean the whole place. A song that reaches through generations, mothers, daughters, and now even grandchildren singing at the top of their lungs, hanging on to every word. Everyone knows the words to this song without realizing it. And once the talkbox finally kicks in you have tears streaming down your face because you don’t realize just how much this song is rooted in your emotions.
That’s what it’s like to see Bon Jovi live. And, yes, God damn it, it is worth every penny you pay.
Your post just gave me chills. Thank you.

I figured you’d be busy today….!
Jon: My God Richie what’s that sound?
Richie: That’s just Linda screaming. She heard we’re coming to Sweden…”
Jon: We’d better get there soooooooon.
