When the band/record company decided that they wanted to release a greatest hits the band did one more sessions and released what in their opinion were the 2 best songs on the compilation album. Stuff like Good Guys, Sat. Night, Always were all finalized on the same session, which could be named the Cross Road sessions. These were not the sessions on which the band recorded stuff for the next album. Open All Night for example is from those sessions and not from the These Days sessions. It was one song they did take with them to the These Days sessions but when the started to write and record more songs the band decided to scrap Open All Night. They loved it very much and thought it'd be what the entire album would sound like. In the end it just wouldn't fit in with the rest of the songs on These Days and was put on the shelf.

Back to the inital subject: It'd be nice to hear what the demo for Good Guys sounds like.

Seb, how do you know this stuff?

I remember the working title for TD was "Open All Night", but obviously it changed. Same thing happened to poor "Sex Sells". I still love that title, escpecially for a Bon Jovi album... lol.

Btw, I read an interview where Jon said "Something To Believe In" was the first song he wrote after the KFT tour, and it came from that feeling of exhaustion and the problems of connecting to the real world again after life on the road.

I really adored Good Guys but I overplayed it way too much and could no longer stand it. However, after seeing this thread I put it on after a much needed break and I love it once more.

Great song - so TELL YOUR MAMA BABY!

I never got to see them perform this one live, and I think it's a damn shame. Definitely one of their best rock songs. Can't fault the band - They released it as a single. It just didn't go anywhere.
