BY JOVI! (with thanks to Mark R)

Simon Mayo | 09:00 UK time, Tuesday, 2 November 2010

Bazza Adams yesterday, I have to tell you, was a shocker. Not like ND was a shocker of course but of what he said during the interview. I played the acoustic version of "Summer of 69" and it was quite clear that well, how shall I put this, no apostrophe is required in the title. The lyrics make it clear but it's meaning is somewhat hidden behind the rock version, I'd never noticed. Always the last to know, as Del Amitri once said. Anyway Sally B. enjoyed her hug.


Sally Boazman and Bryan Adams

So it is BON JOVI day today and stacks of cash heading to the C-in-N coffers. Down in Maida Vale, 100 very lucky fans will be aswayin' and aswoonin' as the boys stomp their way through some of their greatest hits.They came down for a roadshow I did many years ago, were very held up in traffic and we had to overrun by 15 minutes-unheard of! I'm not saying Jamie Cullum needs to worry but who knows what'll happen.
So most of the oldies will be Bon Jovi oldies today. That makes it a BON JOVI theme really. If you've seen them before or ever bought any of their songs, explain yourself below. BJ memories and accolades please. Of the 120 million albums sold, some must be in DT blogger houses I'd have thought...
Have a surprising Tuesday, see you at 5.05

    Bon Jovi songs are you sure Mr Mayo. "Living on a Prayer" would be my choice, once played it over the speakers at a church service I was leading!
    And my U2 song for the day will have to wait until tomorrow then!

    Morning all

    Sorry to be negative and all the best for a jolly show but this house is a 100% Jovi-free zone - and with good reason. I just don't get it, I'm afraid.

    Best wishes to one and all.

    Morning All,

    I don't dislike Bon Jovi, but don't listen to him a lot either, so no suggestions from me today.

    Morning again, all.

    No BJ story from me, I'm afraid, but I'd like to hear

    YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME

    #3 Andrew, I don't think we have got one album of theirs. I was very much around in the eighties as you can probably tell from alot of my choices, but BJ seem to have passed me by. So I was going to quietly disappear, until I remembered that BON JOVI AND BOB GELDOF sang I DON'T LIKE MONDAYS together, but I'm not sure if Simon's team are able to play that.

    Morning All

    No story but I would like to hear

    Blaze of Glory

  • Comment number 9.

    Morning Simon / all,

    My BJ song would be

    WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE.

    Went to see them at the NEC many moons ago, and my friend and I decided to take our guitars along in order to try and get them signed by Richie Sambora (poor deluded youngsters, we were!). Anyway, we walked round to the stage door (well, stage loading bay at the NEC!) and managed to bypass the rudimentary security as the crew were unloading (this was before the days of massive security cordons, etc.) - we had a long chat to the road manager and a few techies, and blagged our way onto the stage, where the crerw took out photo, complete with our guitars, beside Richies backline stack. They even said they would look after our guitars until the end of the show, so we didn't have to walk all the way back to the car and drop them off. At the end of the show we gave the guys a hand pushing the crates into the vans - and it was a fantastic show. Ah, happy days!

  • Comment number 10.

    It was a couple of years after my NEC escapade that the same friend and I went to the annual Mosh-fest that is the Monsters Of Rock at Donington, when they headlined. No such chance of getting anywhere near the road crew then, and the band arrived by helicopter - how bands change!

  • Comment number 11.

    Good Morning Each! I had never spotted the, erm, meaning, that Simon is alluding to above in 'Summer Of 69' either. Cripes! And today it's BJ. I make no further comment.

  • Comment number 12.

    After the Bryan Adams 69 stunner yesterday, are we allowed to tell stories about our memories of BJ?!?!?

  • Comment number 13.

    #11 I should really refresh when posting, shouldn't I?

  • Comment number 14.

    So, hows about...

    'Blaze Of Glory' by a certain Mr John Francis Bongiovi, Jr.

    or...

    'Stranger In This Town' by Richie Sambora


    #13. If you did do that thing, you might be more aware of what's going down.

    Oh, dear, I seem to have been afflicted with some sort of adianoeta. ;0)

  • Comment number 15.

    Morning all

    I missed most of last night's show, and like Paul #11, I didn't realise there was another meaning to that song - I was quite shocked when I read Simon's blog today!

    No story about Bon Jovi, but really like Livin' on a Prayer.

  • Comment number 16.

    Morning All,

    Not got any Bon Jovi stories, so I will just second Billy's choice 'You Give Love a Bad Name'

    Have a good day everybody

  • Comment number 17.

    Living on a Prayer please
    two reasons....firstly I'm an RE teacher, nuff said
    Secondly, this has been played at the weddings of my sisters and me, leading to my dad and I bouncing around the dancefloor playing air guitar and then being told off by my mother who really doesn't understand music!
    Apparently it was bad enough when I was in my wedding dress, but at my middles sister's wedding last month dad and I raced each other through the marquee to the dancefloor.... my mother was not impressed at all!!

    Simon, you were kind enough to play a First record of the show (Superman Tonight) a few months back for me (well, for my husband who isn't a Bon Jovi fan and who tolerates my madness with great good humour - he once drove from Leicester to Huddersfield to bring me the correct tickets for a show!).

    I've seen Bon Jovi over 40 times. My first show was in 1998 when I saw Richie Sambora at Manchester Apollo on his Undiscovered Soul tour - before that I'd never had enough money or anyone to go with - my best friend Kaz and I drove to Manchester, got lost, had an amazing evening - almost got near enough to get an autograph after the show.

    Favourite memories?
    A road trip in 2001 with 4 now dear friends - getting front row Richie's side at Gateshead. I took 150 photos, all of which were rubbish and out of focus. Massive emotional meltdown during Never Say Goodbye at Cardiff (having spent hours in the fanclub line sitting on a kerb waving at the hourly open top bus tours). Taking my daughter to her first show at Coventry and hearing the opening bars of Dry County, grabbing her and yelling in excitement and amazement - she knows ALL the Bon Jovi songs ....and she's happily telling her University friends "It's not HIM, it's THEM - Bon Jovi are a band, Jon Bon Jovi is the man...." (trained her well).

    Do I go on about the 100s of CDs, videos, DVDs, Tshirts, pieces of memorabilia, pictures and calendars? My other obsession is rugby union but it's way down on the list compared to Bon Jovi. Some folk mock the obsession, I've heard all the sniping remarks and rude comments over the years, but if you connect with something, if it brings you happiness, then who cares about people who don't "get it"? Everyone likes different stuff, so allow me to like my favourite band :)

    Sadly - being a carer for elderly disabled father, and a part time job to pay for kidlet in University means I only managed 1 show at the O2 this summer, and will probably only manage 1 next summer. But I live through my many online Bon Jovi friends, some I've known online for 12 years and never met, some I see regularly for DVD evenings and endless chats...for the friends I've made I am always grateful to Jon, Richie, Tico, David and Hugh.

    If I could request one song from tonight's set, it would be either Dry County or In These Arms Tonight.

    Oh, and can you please send Richie Sambora up to Leicester after the show? I missed getting his autograph in 1998 (we were 5 people away and security said that was all) so maybe he could pop in later and have a cup of coffee and a biscuit. I've got chocolate hobnobs.

    Ah! Hello sweet innocents.

    There's me, assuming everyone knows what the 'Summer of 69' is all about!

    Just as the band name '10cc' or 'Lovin' Spoonful', the song 'String of Pearls', ' The Lemon Song' and many more ....

    Hello Simon and Team

    About 10 years ago on returning home from a shopping trip or some such, there was loud music playing in the kitchen/dining at the back of the house.
    Too loud for our return to be heard. We paused.

    My daughter and her friend, aged around 9, were singing, gloriously and whole-heartedly, as you do when you think no-one can hear ..

    ..the song: IT'S MY LIFE - BON JOVI

    It was a wonderful moment. Still haven't told her.

    #20 Must admit that little old innocent me didn't know that either. I can't see Simon suggesting a theme along those lines!! ;-) Though as you say,recent music history is littered with examples.

    I didn't know about 10cc either..... until now! (You are never too old to learn....just may be a bit late though!!!!!)

    HELLO!!!!

    Boy, have I missed you all!

    Totally swamped at work and still recovering from the nightmare that was the trip to Edinburgh when I thought I was going to die. I think Deebee passed on a greeting from me last night and I have just pooped by to say a quick hello. Will be back properly soon as I can.

    In meantime, not a Bon Jovi fan. Had an MRI scan a couple of months ago and it was accompanied by "Blaze of Glory" through the headphones. Put me off them even more. Sorry Simon, but I will give it a miss.

    Katy - so glad to hear you are okay.

    Right, offski. Be good, play nicely. Kisses on noses.

    #35 from the above website -

    COLOR ME BADD - Sam Watters said the name was an attempt to remove racial, sexual and musical overtones - "If you want to color us as anything, color us as badd." Originally called TAKE 1 (but another group was using the name), Jon Bon Jovi asked them to open a Bon Jovi / Skid Row concert with "Daddy's Home" sung a capella. Jon said, "You guys think you're pretty bad. Let's see how bad you are in front of 15,000 people."

  • Comment number 37.

    I got rather worried when you asked for BJ stories, particularly after your comments about the Bryan Adams record. Then I realised you were talking of Bon Jovi :- So "Living on a Prayer" please and I am talking recors now!

    Afternoon all.

    Just a quickie as I've got mountains to get thru .....

    My Bon Jovi thing would be

    JUMP - VAN HALEN

    I saw BJ at Wembley Stadium in about 1993 (These Days tour) and Van Halen were the support act. It was an incredibly hot summer day and when Van Halen did Jump, I amassed a fortune in pound coins as the crowd JUMPED and the coins escaped from their pockets, mid JUMP!

    I almost got enough to buy myself a warm, watered down, over-priced Wembley pint!!

    Laters amigos.

    Not a massive Bon Jovi fan. I have Slippery When Wet and New Jersey (I think)on vinyl and Keep The Faith on CD.

    Keep The Faith the song is fantastic. Fabulous groove to it, really hope they play that this evening. It worked brilliantly in their MTV Unplugged thing I thought.

    Does MTV Unplugged still exist? I'm a bit like Sir Elton, can't stand any of that MTV and VH1 nonsense and haven't tuned in to any of those channels for years.

    Elton's right, bring back Whistle Test. It was the defining music show, even for the latter years when Hepworth, Ellen and Skinner presented it. Nothing since has matched it.

    Hi All

    Just a quick poop by - it's been one of those days... Well, 'Summer of 69' eh? Who knew? Not me for one - and clearly not Simon either!

    No BJ stories for me as I'm not a fan. Although I have a friend who's obsessed with Jon Bon Jovi. She's spent about 2 month's salary on something called a 'crush package' or somesuch for one of their gigs - gives her backstage access and everything. LazyRizzo, you and her would get on like a house on fire...!

  • Comment number 43.

    #41 - Agreed. Posts seem thin on the ground. In fact, I'd say this is the thinnest day, in terms of posts, since I started posting here a few weeks ago.

    I think it must be down to the suggested subject matter. Asking for suggestions and/or memories relating to Elton John is one thing. But Bon Jovi? Really?

    Anyway, on to lighter matters. Does Sally Traffic actually listen to the Confessions? This is not a criticism. Just recently her responses (which usually seem to involve a change of gender for the main protagonist as a minimum) have been far more entertaining than the Confessions themselves.

    I'm back having survived the tax exam this morning - hopefully done enough to pass but who knows, I'll let you know in January! when I get the result.

    Musicians have always been a tad obssessed with s e x, isn't that what rock n roll was slang for?

    I have to say I did enjoy Bryan Adams last night and its always good to hear the lyrics as it reveals a multitude eh!

    I'll add my vote for Blaze of Glory for the Bon Jovi requests.

  • Comment number 56.

    Not sure whether its wholly about how popular they are, but imo a single band for the topic doesn't leave much scope for what this blog is best at, which is bring a whole host of well known, less known and completely obscure songs together in one place.

  • Comment number 57.

    #56. I agree with you, Andy. This blog is certainly a treat. I am sure that Bon Jovi will crop up again, many times, but preferably within the usual mix.

  • Comment number 58.

    #56 Perhaps a theme of double entendre songs/artistes names at some stage in the future?

    My brain must have been switched off this morning, (not sure it is fully functioning now!) as the penny has just dropped as to what you boys were talking about in #11 and #12!

  • Comment number 59.

    I know a lot of people who are listening, plus many who will be doing Listen Again. Maybe they're just not nuts/brave enough to deal with the blog ;)

    I think nuts rather than brave, LadyRizzo! Hope Simon reads out your Bon Jovi memories.

  • Comment number 61.

    #56 - That's a good point. Perhaps Simon should have asked for suggestions not by Bon Jovi but conjured up by having to actually think about them. That might have thrown up something a little more interesting (and diverse).

  • Comment number 62.

    Goodness! How quiet!

    Good Evening All.

    I agree with what's been said. Maybe it's nothing to do with BJ's popularity. It's the theme thing.

    I admit I was disappointed this morning because if the theme is BJ and you don't have any stories you can't contribute much and you can't use your brain to think of links. I just went for something I like.

    If Fair is Fair - the menshes will go to the fans such as Kev/LazyRizzo & Deevs. Hope I haven't missed anyone.

    Back later.

    Sorry to say that Mr Bon Jovi is failing spectacularly to grow on me. Given a massive free plug for the greatest hits the best he can do is be rude about the board games guy. Very impolite.

    It just reinforces my view - giving over the bulk of a show to this group is not a good idea.

    Been out and about today. Seems like a lot of people are non-plussed by today's show being dedicated to one band.

  • Comment number 73.

    to pass this off as a BON JOVI show is ridiculous quite frankly. Seven songs in a two hour programme interspersed with inane drivel about board games is just a poor attempt at a decent show i have to say. I am thoroughly disappointed with the BBC.

  • Comment number 74.

    Hi LazyRizzo

    no problem - I'm really glad you're loving it - and glad you're here too. Variety is what's it's all about.

    Just wondering (for the producers really) whether dedicating a R2 weekday Drivetime show to a single artist (whether it's Bon Jovi or LadyGaga or Madness or The Who or whoever) is the right time and place???

    Bon Jovi rocks my world and have done since i was 6 years old, I've been to seen them on every tour and this year i had an amazing time in London and Paris and was fortunate to meet them on 3 occasions. Looking forward to next year with a road trip to London, Dublin and europe. Big JOVI love to all the guys and their fans.

    Janine

  • Comment number 78.

    @lophoman - probably not. I don't think this format is the way it's usually done, is it? It'd be better to have a single 1 hour show in its own space - but for me, any Bon Jovi is acceptable and makes me happy.

    As does vodka and coke....of which I have now had three. Happy days.

    #75 Lopho - very good point.

  • Comment number 82.

    I'd like to point out that the real reason for the BJ concert in front of only 100 invited guests is to raise a bit of dosh for C.I.N. I reckon that the band have done the charity proud by giving of their time and efforts. I know that they are getting a bit of free publicity, but that is beside the point. I'm not a great Jovi fan, but, hey, they don't seem to have been hurting me.

    The one problem that I do have, though, is that considering what the occasion is for, C.I.N. seems to have been shoved aside somewhat.

  • Comment number 83.

    #75 I think we can forgive them if it doesn't really fit the normal show structure as it's not a normal situation. This was all in aid of Children in Need wasn't it? At least in terms of where the proceeds from the entry costs to the competition are going.

  • Comment number 84.

    It also would appear that we have "new" listeners & bloggers who have joined R2 tonight because they heard that BJ were on.

    And, maybe, because they're not regular listeners to DT and don't know the usual format of DT, and were expecting a CONCERT, maybe they're disappointed. That's understandable.

  • Comment number 85.

    Yeah I guess you are right - I rang in several times for the competition so I have given some funds to CIN - and got some live music into the bargain. Sad that my post wasn't mentioned though. Never mind.
