Question How would your ideal BJ album look like?

Hello everyone, I got a fun question for you guys. Lately I’ve been wondering about how my ideal BJ album would look like. We all know they got an amazing catalog, which makes it extremely difficult to narrow it down to a 12-track-album.
Anyway, here’s the “rules” (for a lack of a better word):
- 12 songs
- HAS TO BE BJ SONGS (apparently it wasn’t clear enough)
- Include different types of songs (heavy, slow, uptempo, fun etc.)
- Have a starter and an end song
- Sort your collection of songs so it makes for a smooth listen

Ex - This is how my ideal BJ album would look like:
- Starting All Over Again
- Just Older
- It’s My Life
- Last Chance Train
- Something To Believe In
- Always
- Lie To Me
- These Days
- Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night
- Blame It On The Love Of Rock and Roll
- Living On A Prayer
- Open All Night (90s)

Damn this was way harder than I originally thought

It is a really hard task. Today I would do it this way.

1. The Distance (I personally think the ending of The Distance and the beginning of prayer fit well together)
2. Livin on a prayer
3. Born to be my baby
4. These days
5. Dry County
6. Lost Highway
7. Stick to your guns
8. Scars on this guitar
9. It’s my life
10. What’s left of me (I think it adds something different to the album)
11. Who says you can’t go home (please don’t kill me)
12. Wanted dead or alive

Bonus track: A version of Rosie like Richie recorded it sung by Jon

Great album you got there! I know, itís very hard and i literally thought about it for days. Iím a big fan of your choice with The Distance as the opener! On another note, I must say Iím surprised with the variety/amount of eras you included.. maybe I should have done the same

I give up. When I curate my favorite music playlists to listen, I end up keeping around 100 BJ songs. Selecting only 12 is too hard, sorry!

Thanks. It was fun. I tried to show as much as possible from the variety of stuff the band has produced over the years.

Why not? Appetite for Destruction is the perfect album, would love to hear Bon Jovi do it.

Bon Jovi wise:

1. Hey God (best opener)
2. Keep the Faith (best 2nd song)
3. Only Lonely (best 3rd song)
4. These Days (best 4th song)
5. Wanted Dead or Alive (best 5th song)
6. Homebound Train (best 6th song)
7. Dry County (best 7th song)
8. It's Hard Letting You Go (best 8th song)
9. Fear (best 9th song)
10. Something to Believe In (best 10th song)
11. If That's What it Takes (best 11th song)
12.Love For Sale (best 12th song)
13. All I Want is Everything (best 13th bonus song)
14. Bad Medicine (best 14th song, Live from Zurich)
15. One Wild Night (best 15th song, 2001 version)

^^ Now here's an absolute cracker, I will make it a playlist.

You know I can almost in my mind hear Jon singing this--back when he could sing obviously. I thought Stranger In This Town was a great album!
