I would never replace Next 100 Years. It's in my opinion the best song on the record and one of the few reasons I still play that album from time to time. Ordinary People on the other hand is a mediocre pop song with Beatles influences. I'm glad they skipped it. Bout the other 2, I agree.
Next 100 years is def. the best song on the album in my opinion. Actually, its my favorite Bon Jovi song.

Next 100 Years is good. The fun of it wore of pretty quickly, but it's still better than most of the songs on the album. And I like Thank You. It's cheesy, but it's a good song. However, Say It Isn't So, Save The World, I Got The Girl, She's A Mystery (to a lesser extent, though) are all filler.

I always though 100 Years was a bad attempt at trying to make an epic like Dry Country. To me the solo is there for the sake of it and really dosent' add to the song.
I think my favourites are Neurotica, Mystery Train and Just Older. The rest really does nothing for me.

I think half the album was fantastic. Songs such as IML, Just Older, Next 100 Years, OWN, Say It Isn't So, Neurotica (even though it didn't make the main release) are good songs. It's just a shame about the other half which is pretty much mush!

I wouldn't really go that far, but considering how long it is, it's really nothing special, yeah. I prefer both the One (Undivided demo) and HAND solos to it.

Jon could say the song is from 7800, and I'd STILL say Crush. I'll link you to the discussion we had about it. There is no way it's from T.D. He also said Why aren't you dead was from Crush on the dvd, it doesn't mean we all have to beleive it, I'm well aware what was said on the dvd.

Sorry, this is just one of those "I'm positive on this one but the band is saying otherwise" deals.

I could not agree more. the song itself verse and chorus is fine, but it just drags on. Dry County is a classic!

How can it be an attempt to be an epic? What story does it tell? Just because it has a lengthy solo, it does not mean it is epic. Yeah, they probably tried to show off that they can do some progressive stuff. that doesn't mean they tried to re-write Dry County, which by the way, is an epic.

Stay, Ordinary People, and Ain't No Cure For Love are 3 of the best songs Jovi have ever done.
Weren't you the one saying 'I believe' should not have been on KTF?

And now you are saying next 100 years, the only decent song on crush shouldn't been there...

And then you are saying those 2 songs are the best Jovi have ever done. Have you ever listened to any pre 2000 record more then twice?

If you did then,

I really like to know what your on and where you got it from...
