I think we all know that, but the thing it’s that JBJ thought that way too...

P.S. I talk to Jesus is one of my favorites -_-

There are a lot of song titles that they share with other artists. You cannot copyright a song title.

It’s My Life—The Animals
Mystery Train—Elvis Presley
Burning Bridges—Slaughter
Satellite—Dave Matthews
The Fighter—Keith Urban with Carrie Underwood (though Bon Jovi’ was first)
Beautiful World—Devo (most annoying band ever)

And so forth and so on.

DA album & era are amazing, as are all 90s Jovi stuff for some reason.

I suppose 1/3 of my real top 30 jovi songs could be DA-era. I like all the album except Naked which has interesting intentions but falls flat. And the B-sides are super cool, some very good, also I Talk To Jesus.

Regarding the adoptation of phrases from other artists/songs, I think it may also be relevant to Jon's not so good memory : if you don't surely remember from where you have heard a phrase, you add it to your song without spoiling the feeling that you have created something new..

DA was a great era, a different sound but MTV, TV and radio were still hugely into BJ after These Days so it was huge. JBJ weekend on MTV a highlight, how I'd love that these days. Well any music on MTV/VH1 obvs.

It took a while to not slip into singing the sha-la-las from Monaco's "What do you want from me" that was out at the same time as Midnight In Chelsea. It's a shame that Jon never went back a did something different in this vein again, working with Dave Stewart, Steve Lironi etc.. in some ways BJ like but in other ways a completely fresh take.

It's really annoying that Jon never properly toured his solo stuff after that. The forum show in 97 was the day before my GCSE English exam so I couldn't go, haven't to spend the night cribbing up my Lord Of The Flies book instead. A theatre tour with songs from Blaze/DA/Covers & BJ would have been great in the same way that Richie's solo tours in 98 and 2012 were.

It's really annoying that Jon never properly toured his solo stuff in any way. Would've loved some 1990/91 appearances for Blaze as well.
With DA - the 1997 promo shows are pure gold for me. Of course he did some shows in 1998, but IMO they weren't nearly as good as the '97 ones since the setlist had already been crammed with too many Jovi tunes that just didn't sound good with the Big Dogs (and especially Bobby) doing them.
