I *think* I'll go for the box set version because that's the version I first fell in love with. In my opinion, LMS is the best Jovi song since '95. I love the HAND version as well though but I think the box set one captures the bitterness of the lyric better.

I'll never forget hearing that song for the first time on the TLFR dvd. I hadn't been touched by a Jovi song that much since These Days. I'd have to say the song is my 4th fav Jovi song of all time behind Prayer, These Days and Always. I hope it's played every show until the end of their's that good.

Definately the boxset/TLFR live version, it's so much better than the HAND version. It has the right feel, if you know what I mean.

I don't know. After hearing the TLFR/boxset version I thought it had a lot of promise. So when it was anounced for Have A Nice Day, the thought of a big hard hitting anthem was very assuring. However, I can't help but feel a bit disappointed. I think the vocals (on the HAND version) let it down, they're just too soft for the pace and strength of the guitars.

The HAND ROCK version, because it's the most energetic, organic song they've done in years. Plus: great solo. They could've done more with the Boxset version, e.g. a better keyboard solo.
