Default Waves - Snippet

https://x.com/BonJovi/status/1794376...roWQ0NQiA&s=08

This one really got me. Loved the chorus and the change of meaning of "waves" was a good catch IMO.

Can't wait for the whole song!

These lyrics are god awful. "Look at me being clever, I can use the word waves in 2 different ways." A wave from the sea and a woman who waves. Whoop di doo. She styled her hair in waves and then she waved to the waves in the sea.

His introduction is shocking as well. This is a 60 year old man who looks like he actually believes the utter nonsense he's talking. "Waves is about letting go. A wave comes, takes and then goes". Yeah, no sh1t.

So far most of the album sounds alright but most lyrics could've been written by a 16 year old.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Yeah the waves double meaning is song writing 101 but hey, if it works, it works. This one sounds good, much more up my street than We Made It Look Easy.

I like the snippet of Waves!
It gives me a feeling of a Crush type of song, fresh and new.

Looking forward to hearing the whole song!

The Songs are catchy but the Lyrics are terrible.

Jon saying he is now a better writer then he was when writing Bad Name is just a lie.

'I got my Girl cause she believes in me' is not fitting for a 60-year-old man.
Or 'we were crashing cars'

Tbh: Taylor Swift who is so big and 'mainstream' has got lyrics on her album that are like fine poetry + they are catchy and complex.

She is in a totally different league compared to Jon
