BON JOVI RELEASE A PAIR OF LYRIC VIDEOS FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING “BURNING BRIDGES” ALBUM
As previously reported, Bon Jovi will be releasing their album, Burning Bridges, on August 21st. The band has released a pair of lyric videos, for the songs We Don’t Run and Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning, from the forthcoming album. Listen to them below.
A spokesperson for Bon Jovi said, “Burning Bridges, which will be released August 21st, is an album for fans and will accompany an upcoming international tour. The band is hard at work on their next album, which will see a full-scale release in 2016.”
Burning Bridges track list:
1. A Teardrop To the Sea
2. We Don’t Run
3. Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning
4. We All Fall Down
5. Blind Love
6. Who Would You Die For
8. Life Is Beautiful
9. I’m Your Man
10. Burning Bridges
Well, I didn’t care for that first song, but I liked the second song, a lot! Over the last 15 years or so, Bon Jovi got way to political, and country for me. Jon, leave the politics to Bono! Now, get Richie back, and go back to just being a good time rock & roll band!
Remember when Bon Jovi was a rock band? Pepperidge farm remembers.
So, I see Sambora is absent in the picture. If we’ve learned anything, it’s that fans don’t care who’s in the band anymore as long as they pump out the country rock hits.
To be honest, Bon Jovi has always on the poppy side of rock music. So, therefore an evolution of morphing their sound to other genres, isn’t that unusual. Now, if a band, such as Motorhead, did a country album, then that would really be out of left field.
Obviously the business model has worked for Bon Jovi, because they are one of the few bands from the 80’s, that can still sell out stadiums in 2015.
I’d pay good money to hear Lemmy’s version of The Gambler.
What difference does it make who is in Bon Jovi? These two new songs would sound exactly as they do regardless of who’s Jon’s band. Jon has only ever written three songs and he’s mastered them all: upbeat anthemic sing-along; overwrought ballad; and new-school country. There’s only slight variation between a good Bon Jovi song and a bad one.
“Burning Bridges” is clearly a reference to the way Richie left the band, correct?
I also would love the hear Lemmy do “The Gambler”, as well as “Lovin’ You” by Minnie Riperton.
