I hate the whole 'let's do it again'  thing....no Jon the tracks too long anyway lol

As with the Def Leppard thread, there are far too many to whittle down to ten. I love all of the first five albums. We all know and love the standards ('prayer, 'dead or alive etc), so I won't bother

Very tough but ll give it a try. 1. Dry County 2. Lie to me 3. Livin' on a prayer 4. Born to be my baby 5. Shot through your heart  6. I Want You 7. Without Love

Here's my top songs.
Have to say that this was way harder than I thought.
Really spells out what an amazing catalogue Bon Jovi have.
I needed to get to top 25 just so that some songs misss out on being written down.
Also, there more recent albums have some great songs, just pale in comparison to the older stuff.

25. Bed Of Roses
24. Joey
23. Hearts Breaking Even
22. Keep The Faith
21. Only Lonely
20. Runaway
19. Captain Crash & The Beauty Queen From Mars
18. Shot Through The Heart
17. Always
16. Starting All Over Again
15. I’ll Be There For You
14. Lay Your Hands On Me
13. Born To Be My Baby
12. It’s My Life
11. Without Love
10. Something For The Pain
9. Edge Of A Broken Heart
8. These Days
7. Bad Medicine
6. If That’s What It Takes
5. Wanted Dead Or Alive
4. Livin’ On A Prayer
3. Wild Is The Wind
2. You Give Love A Bad Name
1. In These Arms

While I think the bulk of them would be off of Slippery and New Jersey, this is gonna be one long fucking list.

But let's be honest, very few people will pick anything off the last few releases .. ha ha.

Like Lepp I am not gonna pick a certain number of songs and will probably do in order of release rather as I would struggle doing them in order I like them, and only pick the ones I really really love, which is still gonna leave a lot of amazing songs off the list.

 

Runaway

She don't know me

In & out of love

Tokyo road

You give love a bad name

Livin' on a prayer

Wanted dead or alive

Social disease

Never say goodbye

Wild in the streets

Lay your hands on me

Bad medicine

Born to be my baby

Homebound train

Stick to your guns

I'll be there for you

Keep the faith

I'll sleep when I'm dead

In these arms

Bed of roses

Dry county

Always

Someday I'll be Saturday night

Hey god

This ain't a love song

These days

It's my life

One wild night

Everyday

Bounce

Good guys don't always wear white

Have a nice day

We were'nt born to follow

When we were beautiful

 

Despite Blaze of glory appearing on Best of albums, I have excluded that album as it is a solo album, otherwise this list would be even longer.

For me the debut was great, but they just got better.

I managed to squeeze in 2 from it, but only at #20 and #18

It's a Jon solo song done for the Elton John tribute album, Two rooms.

There are people who like the first LA Guns ST album and White Lion's Fight To Survive, both of which to me are pretty crappy.

But again, I do like Bon Jovi Self Titled a lot.

Jeez there's some random cuts in some of those lists. Ones that would not personally even make my top 200 Bon Jovi songs, in people's top 10, lol. Well, to each their own, they say.

My top 10 list would read like this (keep in mind, the next 20-30 would be close to or on par with these - so fret not about missed classics);

1. Shot Through the Heart  

2. Without Love

3. In These Arms

4. Edge Of A Broken Heart 

5. Breakout  

6. I Want You

7. Born To Be My Baby

8. Wild Is The Wind

9. Lie To Me

10. I’ll Be There For You

that's more like what I was thinking. but I would pick others off the debut ahead of Breakout & Lie to Me

all great tracks though. They were a driving force back in the day

Funnily enough, 'Breakout' surprises me too. I would have bet all three of my testicles that 'She don't know me,' 'Roulette' and maybe even 'Runaway' were better cuts, but when I listened to the album and laid down my numbers I came to realise that 'Breakout' is pure awesomeness. 

As for 'Lie to me,' just absolutely always loved that song. Such a well written tune with a superb lyric. Love it.

yeah don't get me wrong the whole. album is near perfection. 

That's why some of the other lists have me scratching my head a tad.

think I'll do a list similar to Def Leppard but only down to 9.0 - that will still be a lot though

She Don't Know Me is a cover - Google it 

Not in the strictest meaning. Yes another band recorded it first, but it was kinda a stock tune given to the band Fair Warning by their producer and was never actually released as the whole album was scrapped.

    • From Escape Music: Escape Music pleased to announce the release date for RADAR - Lost In The Atlantic. The CD will be limited edition to 1000 copies only! All will be numbered 1-1000 and will include a post card hand signed by the band! First time On CD!!! Radar was formed in 1981 when David West, Rod Jordan & Gary Stevenson met at the ABC Music Store in Surrey England, where David & Gary were working as guitar & keyboard demonstrators. They set up an 8 track-recording studio ‘Secret Studios’ in West London where they composed their first recordings. In 1983 Radar was signed to Warner Bros Publishing UK and their journey began. During this time guitar player Gary Stevenson also produced ‘outside’ bands at Secret studios, one of them being an unknown duo called ‘Go West’. Gary also used David West on this project and after a few demos the Manager of the band ‘John Glover’ was impressed enough with the work that he commissioned Gary to produce 2 tracks ‘We Close Our Eyes’ & ‘Call Me’ at Chipping Norton Studios in Oxfordshire. These songs & productions caused a stir in the music business at the time and Go West had many record deal offers from major record companies. The band wanted to stay with Gary as producer so signed with Chrysalis Records who were happy to do this, and the rest is history. Go West went on to become the ‘Best Newcomers’ at the 1985 Brit Awards. Radar began recording their album at the famous ‘Trident Studios’ on Wardour Street, London early 1985. In late December 1985 Radar left these shores to reside in the Isle Of Man at ‘The Old Schoolhouse’ in Port Erin, which they converted into a residential recording studio and continued to finish the album. In fact most of the initial London recordings were scrapped and the album was re-started from scratch. Gary continued producing while using David West as his right hand man while Rod Jordan worked on writing for the album and made a few guest appearances on some of Gary’s productions. The band was happy to hold back the release of the Radar album and use the success of Gary’s production works with various bands to promote an upcoming release. In retrospect this had a negative effect on Radar, the momentum was lost and the Radar album was never released. Release Date: 19 February 2021 Track Listing: 1. A Trick Of The Light   4:29  2. Goodbye Mr. President  4:34        3. Laena 3:14         4. Going Overboard  4:06         5. Love Wars  3:47  6. The Calling Time  2:49  7. Lost In The City 3:56   8. Someone’s Crying 6:00   9. Look But Don't Touch  4:48   10. Olympic Runner  4:25 11 My radio wan’t tune to you  3:36 (Demo)   12 I contact You 3:38  (Demo) 13 Nightmare Casualty  5:05  (Demo) 14 I walk The Wire  4:05 (Demo) Radar Is: Rod Jordan – Vocals & Bass. David West - Keyboards & Drum Programming (Go West / Robert Hart / Wild Blue / Tony Hadley) / ABC) Gary Stevenson - Guitars (Go West / Robert Hart / Wild Blue / Tony Hadley) / ABC, Snakecharmer)  Mel Collins - Saxophone Joy Martin – Backing Vocals (A La Carte) Peter Cox – Backing Vocals - Olympic Runner (Go West)
