Couldn't agree more. Without Love would've fit the debut very very well, probably even Fahrenheit but in my opinion it never had that SWW vibe which Borderline definitely has.

Great song, Great Riff!
It has a bit of the tongue in cheek/Aerosmith vibe which is sort of missing from the rest of the album. And for an album that was supposed to have a lady's bosoms on the cover, it badly needs it. And come to think of it, what other Bon Jovi song is NSFW? (that intro).

Not a great song and I tend to forget about it too.
But come to think of it I kinda like it. It is a have-some-fun-and-don't-take-it-too-serious song.

I really like Borderline but it would have changed the mood of the whole album somehow.
Edge of a Broken Heart has a very weak chorus = not album material.

Sure, I thought of that but then realised it's not on any studio album. Even that's done with some subtlety but Social Disease has straight up porn audio in the intro.

For some reason I thought LMIB was a bonus track, my bad.

Didn't Jon once tell a story about Steven Tyler hearing Social Disease while the band were recording it and he asked Jon if Aerosmith could have it for the Permanent Vacation album? And Jon thought that if he wants it it must be good and said no. Anyone else remember that!?
