Default Make Your Own Greatest Hits...

G'day.

I've been playing the 2 CD Greatest Hits in my car for the last couple of days and I'm not happy with what is on it. It has most of the good stuff, but a lot of things are missing!!!

I don't think they should've done the different track listing for the different countries and the single and double discs versions. I would have done just a straight 2 CD and released it everywhere with the same songs. And it would look like this...

DISC 1:

01. Livin' On A Prayer
02. You Give Love A Bad Name
03. Keep The Faith
04. Bad Medicine
05. Wanted Dead Or Alive
06. Lay Your Hands On Me
07. Runaway
08. Bed Of Roses
09. Born To Be My Baby
10. I'll Be There For You
11. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
12. Someday I'll Be Saturday Night
13. In And Out Of Love
14. In These Arms
15. Always

DISC 2:

01. It's My Life
02. Have A Nice Day
03. (You Want To) Make A Memory
04. Something For The Pain
05. This Ain't A Love Song
06. Misunderstood
07. We Weren't Born To Follow
08. Who Say You Can't Go Home
09. Everyday
10. Thank You For Loving Me
11. Say It Isn't So
12. All About Lovin' You
13. Lost Highway
14. Lie To Me
15. One Wild Night (2001)
16. This Is Love This Is Life
17. No Apologies
18. The More Things Change
19. What Do You Got?

If you were one of the record company 'suits' and the band couldn't be bothered designing the CD, after they had recorded the new songs (like this would happen ), what order and what songs would you put on the CD/s? (I know this sort of thing has been done to death, but we all have lots of fun making it.)

CD 1 (approx. 79 mins)

01. Livin' on a prayer (SWW)
02. This ain't a love song (TD)
03. One wild night 2001 (OWN)
04. Blaze of Glory (BOG-YGII)
05. What do you got (NEW)
06. I'll be there for you (NJ)
07. Everyday (BOUNCE)
08. Superman Tonight (TC)
09. Till we ain't strangers anymore (LH)
10. You give love a bad name (SWW)
11. Thank you for loving me (CRUSH)
12. Bad medicine (NJ)
13. Welcome to wherever you are (HAND)
14. Something for the pain (TD)
15. This is love this is life (NEW)
16. Keep the faith (KTF)
17. Misunderstood (BOUNCE)
18. When we were beautiful (TC)

CD 2 (approx. 78mins)
01. It's my life (CRUSH)
02. These days (TD)
03. No apologies (NEW)
04. Bed of roses (KTF)
05. We weren't born to follow (TC)
06. You want to make a memory (LH)
07. Someday I'll be Saturday night (CR)
08. Have a nice day (HAND)
09. Runaway (BJ)
10. Say it isn't so (CRUSH)
11. The more things change (NEW)
12. Lay your hands on me (NJ)
13. All about loving you (BOUNCE)
14. Wanted dead or alive (SWW)
15. Who says you can't go home (HAND)
16. Only lonely (7800F)
17. Always (CR)

My basic points for this tracklist:
- utilises all the space available on each CD, 35 songs in total
- represents every Bon Jovi album
- puts emphasis on post-95 stuff - all albums from 1995 on (excluding LH) are featured with THREE TRACKS. Purpose: 1/to acquaint the casual fan with something not available on CROSSROAD. 2/ to give those tracks another exposure to a vast majority of people. 3/ to prevent the "nostalgia" effect.

This is what I consider to be an adequate compilation which would fit into the "greatest hits" context.

What do you guys think? I am eager to read other suggestions as well.

I like what you have done!!! 'Only Lonely' how could I forget that? LOL. This sort of thing has to be a 2 CD. It can't be done with 1. I hate that 'Keep The Faith' isn't on the single disc edition. It's crap.

If you don't like the topic - don't comment on it. It's simple. Rudeness like this on forums yours uncalled for and unnessessary and intimidates other users.
Did you know you can get 90 minutes CD's? I made a 4 disc compilation based around Cross Road/Greatest Hits. Def Leppard's 2nd Best of consisted of their original Vault album with a new 2nd disc of deep cuts.

Bon Jovi have released more hits than the Lepps.

Disc 1 is Cross Road extended from 14/15 songs to 19 and incorpates 4 extra songs. Disc 2 and 3 are hits from 1995-2010 and hits that didn't (criminally appear on Cross Road). Disc 4 is a deep cuts album. Some of the tracks are rare single edits. The reasons I have these track listing are the same as prayer_84... oh and it sounds damn good to the ears.

P.S. I used 90mins CD-R's. If you have Nero burning rom you can use Overburn which allow you to burn more data on a CD-R.
