I like it a lot. I think it's a great song and lyrics. It may not be one of their best, but it's a damn good song.

Exactly but then you have people on here that want Bon Jovi to do exactly what Motley Crue did which is essentially to rip off their old material and sell it to their fans as new material.

Unfortunately - the comments here show that people don't realize that it's a rip off. I love the original song that it is taken from - but not the pale imitation. Let's see if I can find the post that ponrauil posted when it came out comparing the two. He did it so well.


If the love that I got for you is gone
Ring them bells, ring them loud

If the river I cried ain’t that long
Let them ring, here and now

Then I’m wrong,
Just reach out

yeah I’m wrong,
and ring

this ain’t a love song
the Bells of Freedom

This came from this old thread:

I really liked the lyrics of the pre-release version.

Yeah. Iīve never understood why they had to do it this way. This is even more obvious than If You Were A Woman vs You Give Love A Bad Name. Or is it Desmond who likes to recycle?

Yes it's rip but it's GOOD rip and Bells OF is so different song and that's nothing wrong that this is rip. 2 different song with similar melody in chorus.

Music good/ Lyrics great / Vocal Fantastic = Great Song
