Default Real Life: good or bad?

Real Life from 1999. I don't mind this song and the sound is certainly different from what was finally released as the album Crush in 2000.

What do you think... good or bad. Is this song criminally forgotten or should it never see the light of day again? Never played live...

It's a perfect soundtrack song for a B rated movie.

The song is enjoyable but nothing to go jumping through hoops for.

Its better than Mr Big Time

I agree... I think the lyrics seem more inspired than anything I've heard from them in a while (still cliche', but inspired). It's good but not a song that would attract new fans.

Awesome song, and the boxset version is actually better than the original, in my opinion.

I always liked it. I prefer the original version, though.

I loved it when I first heard it. Then liked it. Then Freaking fell in love with it again when I heard the box set version, now I'm back to liking it. So I'm always positive about the song....

I love this Song
I know 3 or 4 versions of it ans I like them all.
In my opinion the Radio edit is the best, well I dont know if its a radio edit but they played it a few times on the radio here

Excellent song. Always liked it and probably always will.

Shame it's been completely forgotten about by the band. Would love for them to play it live just once.

It´s got many of the things a good song must have: intelligent lyrics, good harmony, and good sound.
Crush coulda, shoulda been in the vein of this song; such a pity for David´s injury on his fingers because it put off "Sex Sells" more than one year, enough time for Bruce Fairbairn´s passing away, and ...
It´s not what I think, in fact I like many other Jovi songs more than this one, it´s just a fact that this is one of their 3 to 5 best songs in the last 15 years. A pity it was a song for a film and with Warner bhind...
