It's one of my least faves of the album along with Diamon Ring but I dont mind it, dont think it would work as a single though.

Bitter Wine is awesome! I like Diamond Ring too... + All I Want is Everything, for that matter.

My Guitar is a masterpiece in my opinion also though I think the entire These Days album is Bon Jovi's masterpiece.

It was actually played quite a bit on the European These Days Tour - Landgraaf, Enschede, Stuttgart etc.

Take a look at the setlists here:

I agree with you x832943396598 million. I was thinking about starting this thread the other day.

Wow, I love this song. Lyrics are beautiful (depressing, but so what? They are real.) Music is brilliant. Voacals are brilliant. Everything about it, I adore!

This is one of the first BJ songs I heard. My sister was obsessed with it back in the day. I could go on and on. But what you said explains it all. It's s ****ing masterpiece! One of my verrryy favourites.

Can't believe I've not been praying for this to be played. :P I guess it just seems impossible it will. Now I'm gonna have to start saying "it WILL be played", like I did last night with LIS and then BANG, Kev posts telling us it's being played straight after I said it.

I honestly don't think Jon has the vocals to do this justice live anymore. The ending is extremely powerful and one thing his voice lacks is a lot of power. It's one of the reasons All I Want is Everything didn't go over that well live. The recorded track kicks ass though,

How about is he just toned the ending down? Obviously wouldn't be as good, but it could work. That's what he's been doing for other songs, isn't it.

Don't spoil my fantasy. Haha.

If you could marry songs, then I'd be cheating on You Give Love A Bad Name with this.

I love that song... yeah, it's a masterpiece and one of the best BJ songs ever. However, I don't listen to it often (like the whole These Days) - only when I'm in a special mood and usually in the evening or at night
