OK the boxset is unbelievable. In my opinion, some of the best songs are

Last Chance Train
Love Ain't Nothin But A Four Letter Word
Miss Fourth of July
The Radio Saved My Life Tonight
Rich Man Living In A Poor Man's House
Kidnap An Angel (absolutely amazing song)
Outlaws of Love
Letter To A Friend

The boxset's pretty awesome but it's always left me wondering what else is in those vaults. A lot of folk agree that Jon doesn't always choose the right tracks for albums, so who knows what he didn't put on the boxset.

...The Sole Truth...
...One To Say Goodbye...
...Sex Sells...

Since SS was going to be the title track of the album (circa '99) it must be good song! Would love to hear it!

I'm dying to hear Too Much Too Soon from the Slippery sessions as well as Sex Sells.

But yah, the boxset is very solid. Some of the songs I'm amazed never made it to an album (particularly Radio, Garageland and Outlaws of Love). While others should've been album singles rather than buried soundtracks songs (Good Guys, Real Life, Edge of a Broken Heart - although the last one was pretty successful).

If I had to name a favorite, I'd have to go with River Runs Dry. Absolutely beautiful song.

You know, have hardly listened to the Box set since it was released. Mainly because I don't even know what to begin listening to on it, lol, there's that many....

What I would LOVE is a Live Box Set, because my one disappointment was there were no live tracks. I'm dying to think of all the soundboard quality gems Jovi have lying in their vaults.

Listen to the first five tracks on disc one.
I promise they'll blow you away.

I will have listened to them, and I agree, the box set has a shitload of treasures. Its just not something I've brought out more than once or twice since I've had it.

Love Nobody's Hero and The Fire Inside and one other one I've forgotten the name of....lol

Like I said above, if I had a live box set, it would never be off my CD player. Guess I just like being taken to a Jovi concert whenever it takes my fancy.

Burn some CDs of the best songs ... make sure to include the following:

Why Aren't You Dead?
Radio Saved My Life Tonight
Taking It Back (what a pure rock rush that song is!)
Open All Night
Last Man Standing
I Just Want To Be Your Man (although no one ever seems to mention this one, I really like it)

Starting All Over Again
Maybe Someday (so should have been on Crush in place of Save The World)
Last Chance Train
The Fire Inside
The One That Got Away
You Can Sleep While I Dream
Outlaws Of Love
Good Guys Don't Always Wear White
We Rule The Night

Edge Of A Broken Heart
Sympathy (and the Tico song!)
Lonely At The Top
Ordinary People
Flesh And Bone (one of my favourite on the set, no one ever seems to mention it though)
Satellite
If I Can't Have Your Love

Love Ain't Nothing But A Four Letter Word (whichever version you prefer)
River Runs Dry
Always (highest Jon vocal ever recorded? Sounds like it to me)
Kidnap An Angel
Breathe
Out Of Bounds
Temptation
Gotta Have A Reason
Nobody's Hero

Damn, there are so many good songs on the boxset ... I absolutely adore it!
