Default One Wild Night

Sorry to jump on the single-song thread bandwagon, but I don't think this song is talked about enough here.

One Wild Night is a great song. I love the guitar part on it, and the lyrics are catchy. It sounds GREAT live, and fits well as an opener. I hate the single version, the album version is far superior. I think it's one of their greatest "rock" songs of the decade. I can see how some here would despise it, the "na na na na" parts and the kinda cheesy lyrics.

That polka intro thing is cool too. When I heard it at first, I thought "What the f**k is this???

P.S: If Richie wants to keep doing slide solos, he should do them like this.

Whaddya guys think?

I love the single version better than the original album track.
A great song for sure, this song, IML, Just Older and Thank You For Loving Me are all awesome songs from Crush.

One Wild Night was a slow starter with me as was most of that album. However, just as it it is with Crush as a whole... my appreciation of the song has only grown over the years. The problem initially was I was looking for that song on Crush that just came at you with knives. I had to reset my expectations.. or let them go.

You pretty much summed up what my initial issues were with the song. It was just too damn hokey-sounding. It didn't rock with a sharper edge. It was a bit too sticky sweet. Then again.. when you take in the lyrics "It was a.. hot night. The natives are restless. We're sweating by the light of the moooon. There' s a voodoo mojo brewing at the go-go that could knock a witch of her broom." Somehow I wind up at a beachside club with a sticky sweet tropical drink in hand dancing to the house band.

I must admit I do miss this. It would be a welcome return to the set if the flow of the set called for it and it does shine brightest as a live number as opposed to the studio version. I do not expect or hope for it as an opener due to my personal preference they not repeat the past too much and focus on keeping the opening song fresh in whatever manner, be it new song or a song that hasn't been done before as an opener. Just if it comes back, catch me off guard.

Didn't like it at first, now love it. One of the better tracks on Crush, that's for sure.

It's a great song I loved both versions ...and when Jon is in a good mood and add it to the setlist from time to time I am as happy as a these days song (well almost) I loved it in brussels in 2008 it was a GREAT treat

It was 10 years ago this week that I bought Crush, my first Jovi album. This song was immediatly my favorite song of all time and still is to this day. It is my dream to see it live. This is the band at their coolest from as long as I've been a fan

Erm, no. One Wild Night is a shit live album, most fans agree on that. There's shitloads of bootlegs out there that are of better quality and have better performances on them.

Salaam Aleikum,
