Post Love Is War

What about this one?


Personally I love it. Great song.

Also, which version do u prefer?

I prefer the one that starts with the guitar. Much better than the one that starts with Tico and the sticks.

Great song, but sounds a bit too much like You Give Love A Bad Name in the chorus.

I remember buying the Living In Sin vinyl single in 1989 and flipping the disc over to find Love Is War. I always thought it was a great Bon Jovi song.

According to Jon (or was it Richie), it was one of the first songs written after the SWW world tour. Jon was desperate to repeat the success of SWW at any cost, so he kind of re-wrote Bad Name with almost exactly the same chord progressions. (I´m not a musician myself but I understand these songs have the same basic elements.)

I was really enthusiastic when in 1998 I bought the japanese remastered edition of New Jersey, which had "Love Is War" on the bonus disc. I was so excited about finally getting this rare track, and when I found out how great it was it became one of my favourite tracks. Never seen it too close to Bad Name, but it's a typical 80s song. I'm not sure if it would have fitted on the album, but it complemented it very well. One of my favourite B-sides!

It is on youtube

Sounds alright, I like the intro. The sound quality is AWFUL though, you can tell it's a demo alright, it's very very basic

There's another version? Is that more complete sounding?
