BJ's fourth album - New Jersey! I think its gonna be close. FIVE singles went to No 1 from this album so theres no shortage.

Because the poll only allows 10 options I had to omit love for sale but I don't think it would've won.

Oh shithouse! This is where it gets difficult. I've gone for Blood on Blood, perhaps because it is my favourate at this time, but at any other time I coulda chosen Homebound Train, Livin' in Sin, Love for Sale, etc. Not a bad track on this album.

Livin' in Sin as it is on the album with the passionate screaming.

Live it would have to be Blood on Blood.

And I quite enjoy Love for Sale.

I went for Blood On Blood too, but I totally concur that nearly all the songs on New Jersey are utterly fantastic

By the way, only two of NJ's singles went to number 1 (in the US), Bad Medicine and I'll Be There For You

I can see why medicine and others might be more commercially successful but blood on blood just seems to be pure Jovi. It emphasises so much thats great about the band; the message of sticking together, the catchiness, the cheesiness and the sentiment makes it so great in my view.

Wild is the wind, but yet again a hard choice.

Though all the songs on New Jersey are fantastic (Bad Medicine you get a bit sick of after a while, but it's still cool XD), it's between STYG and BoB for me...damn it...

Eh, I chose DoA for Slippery and that's a cowboy song too...so I'll go with BoB, what the hell XD
