Default The Distance... What's your take?

Do you like The Distance? I hadn't really been fond of it until about a month ago and now It's in my top 5 favorite Bon Jovi songs. Where would you put it on your list of favorites? Will it be one to keep on tour?

Ryan

Aloha !

The song sucks, it's an overproduced tune. Thierry told I sucked when I said it to him, and that I should hear it in concert, which I did, and I thought it still sucked. No extreme guitarsolo of Richie could help that. Funny thing is, that I really like the acoustic version of it. Not that I'd put it in my top-20, but then it's an okay song.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Modern Bon Jovi. Neither good nor bad.

Voted for number 2.

I really didn't care for it until I heard the version on the Japanese TLFR that I bought. I heard it live many times this past summer. I had the bootleg from Yokohama but the sound was not not so hot. The version with the strings on that recording gave me chills the first time I heard it. I'm still not too sure that it works live but I sure love to listen to it now.
