gefällt mir nicht
******
Geiler Song, typisch Bon Jovi!
***
na ja
******
absolut geil
****
...gut...
******
sehr gut reicht hier eigentlich nicht mehr, hier müsste eine Superlative her
*****
Gefällt mir heute deutlich besser als damals. Für mich der beste Rocksong ab der CD, der einzige, den ich wirklich gut finde. Trotzdem insgesamt etwas schwächer als ihre grössten Rock-Knaller.
*****
Geiler Song vom NY-Album.
******
Das Beste von Bon Jovi überhaupt nanana nana na nana na nana...
****
Typisch Bon Jovi, aber irgendwie erinnert mich dieser Song immer an Bruce Springsteen... Guter, bei weitem nicht überragender Song vom "New Jersey" Album.
*****
Ned schlecht, schön zum mitjohlen :-)
*****
schön
******
Mein absoluter Favourite von den Jungs!!!!, noch vor "Runaway" und "You give Love a bad Name".
Stimme savage völlig überein. Einer der besten Rocksongs, die ich kenne.
*****
Toller Song, es gibt aber eineige Songs, die mir besser gefallen.
*****
Stark!
******
Hammersong!!
****
Jo, wir sind füreinander geschaffen. Jon, ich liebe dich, hahahaha. Anfang 1989 eine # 3 in den USA.
*****
coole melodie! cool!
******
...herrlicher Rocker, aufgerundete sechs...
****
Vor genau 18 Jahren (!) 2te Singleauskopplung aus New Jersey, wo sie mal einen flotteren Zahn hinlegten..gefiel mir gut - viel viel später erschien eine acoustic version - die gefällt mir heute besser.

sehr guter Song, kann ich immer wieder hören.

Man hört das es Bon Jovi ist,aber eher durchschnitt.
*****
Recht guter Rocksong, aber etwas weniger als Knaller wie "You Give Love..." oder "Livin' On A Prayer". Aufgerundete 5*.
******
Absoluter Hammersong sogar! :-))
***
...okay...
*****
mool das gefällt mir..
****
gut
**
schwach
**
Gewohnte BJ-Kost. 2*!
****
mittelprächtiger Rocksong
*****
Rocking song taken from 'New Jersey'. Pity it didn't chart better because it's the best single lifted from the album.
*****
5+
******
Der Refrain reißt einen schon erstaunlich gut mit.

Irgendwie unaufhaltsam... Ausgezeichnet!
****
eher ne 4- aber es ist halt bon jovi
*****
Muy buena.
*****
War glaube ich die 2.single von das "New Jersey-Album"....klasse gemacht !
***
weniger
****
Guter, wenn auch nicht einer der besten BJ-Titel
*****
▒ Top track van hun album "New Jersey" uit september 1988 !!! Vreemd dat het plaatje hier niet zoveel deed ??? Ook ik ga voor de 5 sterren ☺!!!
***
2e single van het album "New Jersey", werd in Nederland in november 1988 uitgebracht (er werd zelfs nog reclame voor gemaakt in het gedrukte Top 40-exemplaar) maar deed helemaal niets. Niet echt bijzonder, maar toch nog 3 sterren.
*****
gute bis sehr gute Rocknummer aus 1988, damit auf #7 in IRL, #22 in UK – 4.5 (knapp aufgerundet auf 5*)…
*****
Dass der auf "Croos Road" nicht drauf ist?
**
schwach
******
Grandioser Knaller aus ihrem besten und erfolgreichsten Album.

Die aufgefrischte Nummer von 2003 behält den Charme des Originals, ohne genauso abzugehen.

Mann o Mann, manifestierte Rockbanalität
***
Average, I don't really like Bon Jovi and this doesn't make me want to change my mind.

Spitzen Song. Endlich mal ein rockiges Liebeslied!
****
Idealer Song für den Live-Auftritt.....

4 +
***
Ein Kracher, aber nicht ganz nach meinem Geschmack...
*****
Gut.
*****
Great rock track!
****
Zweite Single aus "New Jersey" und immerhin in den USA und Irland ein Top10-Erfolg. Solider Rocker.
**
Weniger...

Gefällt mir nicht.
*****
Un titre très efficace de l'album "New Jersey".
****
Knappe 4 sind hier drin. Die Produktion ist soundtechnisch doch gelungen. 4-
****
Buena
*****
Nananana, nanana, nana nanaaaaa. Wenn man über das hinweg sehen kann ist das eigentlich ein ganz guter Song

Formatradio erster Garde, in diesem Fall aus 1988. Eine liebe Kollegin mag diese Gruppe, mein Fall ist's eher nicht, aber man kann es zur Not noch anhören.
****
Gefällt mir ganz gut.
******
Hammergeiler SONG!!!!!!
*****
Mit einer der guten alten Songs von BJ
*****
Prügelhart krachend, d.h. in derjenigen Tonalpreisklasse, wo man Bon Jovi Ende der Achtzigerjahre kennen und lieben lernte, kommt diese dritte CH-Hitparadennotierung daher. Die eingeforderte partnerschaftliche Exklusivität des Lebenszwecks präsentiert sich zwar inhaltlich etwas gar anmassend-absolut; allein die cool-saftige Klangdisposition ist jedoch per se Anlass für eine satte Fünf.
****
gut
**
Wenn ich schon den Anfang höre, weiss ich warum diese Band mir manchmal auf den Wecker geht! Der Refrain ist auch schrecklich! Mag den Song überhaupt nicht!
**
Toolshed sagte es mal hier: Wie Modern Talking. Für mich auch.
****
...kann ich immer noch hören...
