I'll have to check where I got the Hammersmith Odeon show, just in case there's something better out there.

Thanks for the info!
I just finally sat down after dinner - and it's almost 10:00 pm <sigh> Glad to be of help.

You write your truth and I'll write mine.

What happened to this song? Was it ever used in the "Cadillac Man" movie starring Robin Williams or did they just drop it or did the boys do what they did with "Always" and "Romeo Is Bleeding"?

The Hammersmith Odeon show has the best sound of all 3 if you have Paragon's version.

They played it for the first time in Melbourne on 14th Nov 1989. And there's a chance that they played it on some of the other Hammersmith shows.

I don't understand how the producers could not like it that they didn't want it in the movie in the end.

I really love this song. It's just acoustic but it has a drive!!

Snippet of a live rehearsal of "Cadillac Man" from Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.

I thought I'd post it here to save people trawling through the TY,GN thread if people just want to talk about the song itself and maybe if it gets included on the next box set.

Never paid this song much thought during the years of being a fan and coming here. I've always thought it was a nice enough song but nothing spectacular. That acoustic riff is very New Jersey-esque but (as I'm sure I posted somewhere else here) it mostly sound like a song that could have been on Lost Highway.

Was still cool to hear some of it in TY,GN and I would really like to see the full song (in some form) included in the next box set.

If I die tomorrow, have I said all I can say?

Richie even played on both songs.
