Default songs you love/hate

Are there any songs you love that you feel most do not care for and vice versa.


a couple songs I love that most do not seem to care for are:

1.Blame It On The Love Of Rock & Roll
an infectious rocker, Jon in peak vocal form, excellent production

2.Damned
again, an infectious rocker, Jon in peak vocal form, excellent production

other songs like Woman In Love, Fear, Hearts Breaking Even and If That's What It Takes would also fit the criteria.



a couple songs most seem to love that I do not care for are:

1. Last Man Standing
I get that it's an uptemp song but I don't care for the vocal and I don't find there to be really any hook/melodies to grab on to. I actually find the chorus kind of annoying.

2. Blood In The Water
I don't care for the spoken word vocal of the verses and while I don't mind the chorus it doesn't do a lot for me. Maybe with Jon in peak vocal form things would be different.

I also like Fear very much. Others that perhaps don't get much love include Hardest Part is the Night, Two Story Town (brilliant production on that one), Novocaine, Seat Next To You, Walk Like a Man, Roller Coaster, Lower the Flag. Also, I really like Open All Night from the boxset (TD outtake if I'm not mistaken)

Out of more popular ones, I guess I don't really like Living in Sin, Sleep When I'm Dead, Something for the pain. Would agree with you on Last man standing, it's a solid one, but feels like a filler, B-side as it is recorded on HAND

I hate Who Says to death. Don't care about Bounce, Say It Isn't So and One Wild Night.
I love Misunderstood, Whole Lot of Leavin', All About Lovin' You, Superman Tonight, In And Out of Love. Yep. I could list even more post 2000 songs that I like and don't get love.

Hearts Breaking Even is great. Don't care if people find this song and AALY too much Aerosmith-ish.

And I absolutely love Destination Anywhere and will defend that album forever.

I love The Price Of Love, Bullet and Nobody's Hero(and the whole Blaze Of Glory record, not a single bad song on it). Not a big fan of Born To Follow and Fear.

Bullet is one of my all time favorites. I held up a sign in the 3rd row to see if Jon would consider playing it back in 2022. I knew this was highly unlikely. But I also had a sign for Luv Can, which could have happened more likely. But it didn't. Jon, David, and Phil all saw my Luv Can sign though.

Default songs you love/hate

Speaking of unpopular songs on this forum, I have always loved We Werenít Born To Follow, Because We Can and Story of Love.

On the other hand, some of the songs commonly loved here do very little to me. For example, Fear and Novocaine are with no doubt well crafted great songs but I always skip them. The Distance is a song highly appreciated here but I just donít get it at all. Believe me Iíve tried. For me itís one the weakest BJ songs post TD.

I hope I donít get banned for this post, though

I find the nursery rhyme quality of Story Of Love to be somewhat catchy, and I like the way it segues to the outro guitar solo, but the vocals are a tough listen.

Are Fear and Novocaine much loved on this forum?

Fear definitely is.

Novocaine less so.
