I don't know why that song was called "Living With The Ghost"? The line from it clearly stated "I ain't living with the ghost." Yes I feel the Ghost was indeed Richie.

While I have followed and liked what Bon Jovi did without Richie at least until 2020 I have to admit that with Richie was better. Since Jon voice is truly awful now I have been listening to a lot of old music from them and now have more appreciation of Richie.

Do finally I've got a playlist that I consider definitive. First I tried putting all songs into a playlist and remove those I don't like. It didn't work. So I went and chose only those that I really love in there. Then I played with the order a bit. The problem is that I've put a lot of slower songs in there and I still think that A Teardrop To The Sea doesn't fit there. I had to skip Real Love or Blind Love because of the same reason. There are still songs that I like and listen to, that haven't made it because there's no place. Nice challenge though

01. We Don't Run
02. When We Were Us
03. Luv Can
04. Roller Coaster
05. Blood In The Water
06. I Will Drive You Home
07. Fingerprints
08. This House Is Not For Sale
09. Lower The Flag
10. A Teardrop To The Sea
11. Living With The Ghost
12. Story Of Love

Which are your picks?
Thank you for this little task! It made me listen to these albums again. My playlist surprisingly does include Roller Coaster and Story of Love, whereas A Teardrop to the Sea and I Will Drive You Home didn't make it. Also Burning Bridges wouldn't work as hidden track, something I was considering. The first ten tracks alone would work too, but overall I'm quite happy with the list.

1. When We Were Us
2. We Don't Run
3. Real Love
4. Living With the Ghost
5. Lower the Flag
6. This House Is Not For Sale
7. Luv Can
8. Born Again Tomorrow
9. Beautiful Drug
10. Reunion
11. Roller Coaster
12. Story of Love
