Default Just Older v The Distance

IMO, two of the best medium-rock songs they've ever written. Also, I think that they are probably two of the best songs to come from the last two studio albums, Crush and Bounce.

Which is better though? I'd probably lean toward Just Older, only because it is more of an established Bon Jovi song, though it is really quite hard to split the two.

Just Older, it is kind of a theme for them.

Plus, it mentions our favorite Coach..Coach T.!!!

I like them both heaps but there is something about the chorus of "The Distance" that makes me lean towards it as the better of the 2.

I do really love them both, but "The Distance" was the song that, upon first listen, I got chills for. Since then, it's become one of my all-time favorites that the boys have done. But "Just Older" is still a brilliant song.
