Default Battle: Broken Heart vs Good Guys

Not sure if this has been asked before so sorry if it has!

Two extremely awesome Jovi songs, both featured on movie soundtracks, both fan favourites, yet niether on a studio album.

From what ive seen around the boards, id say that most people like Good Guys better the Broken Heart, but for me its the other way around. Edge of a Broken Heart has such awesome guitar work and the melody is beautiful. The intro is magic! For me, its a top 10 Jovi song.

Dont get me wrong, I love Good Guys! Its a mega ass kicking song . I just love EOABH too much. I think it wouldve been perfect on SWW along with Borderline.

So, which do you like better?

Good Guys all the way! What a beast of a song.

EOABH is ok, but overrated in my books. Not bothered that it didn't make SWW at all. Sorry.

Good Guys, but Edge of a Broken Heart should have been on Slippery.

Edge Of A Broken Heart is a great song that sounds like it would have fit perfectly on Slippery. Good Guys is a beast of a song that manages to sound quite unlike anything in the whole Bon Jovi catalogue (maybe Taking It Back, but that's hardly well known). And for that, Good Guys wins for me

I think I may have voted for EOABH by accident

Good Guys! Edge of a Broken Heart is an excellent song that Jon was stupid not to include on Slippery (then again we all know the story of Prayer so I wont go there XD), but Good Guys rocks and rocks and rocks!

Edge of a Broken Heart easily ! It got the sound from SWW and that sound is magic. Great guitar work and a great chorus ! Could easily have beaten Social Disease or Let It Rock. Godd Guys are a great song, but nowhere near Edge.

Both are great, but I have to go with Good Guys. That being said, EOABH should have been on Slippery, as it's much better then Let it Rock, Without Love, and especially Social Disease.

I think EOABH is pretty average to be honest, especially when you compare it to everything else on SWW. GGDAWW on the other hand is kick ass!
