Jon ages 3 years for every year that goes by. What is that weird pointing / smile thing he does at the end?

My mother must have stumbled upon this and texted me asking if Jon had an English accent. I didn't even know how to respond.

I think of it as the cameraman dragging it on for way too long, creating an awkward scenario that everyone has experienced at least once in their lives.

Nothing noteworthy or of importance to mention

Plus, I think the music video in Venice was quite a good one, by their standards. When I first switched from casual to a diehard around 2008, I couldn't understand why Jon completely ignored it on the setlist, especially given how the more popular ballads were more vocally challenging.

I just think, much like with the Bounce era songs, he completely underestimated the local element of songs popularity and not playing the European or South American hits even in those markets, just because those songs were not popular in US.
Thank You For Loving Me is HUGE in Brazil. Probably their second biggest ballad, behind Always. I think this affects the numbers, as Spotify is the most popular streaming service in Brazil as well.

Not to mention Misunderstood. To this date it still one of Bon Jovi's most popular songs round here.

Who Says actually did better than Have A Nice Day as far as chart positions go (HAND got to 6, Who Says 5). but that was there the hits ended...

Yep. I was just looking up how songs like Memory and Born To Follow did in the UK charts and they were total bombs. Funny that Who Says was the last 'hit' the band had in THE UK.
