We Got It Goin' On At Least Eight Times A Day

I work in a store where there are a bazillion televisions, all playing the same video all day long. That means that whatever is being played that day will repeat approximately eight times while I am there. Not only will I see the video eight times a day, I will also hear it eight times a day. The last two weeks I have seen and heard Bon Jovi Live at Madison Square Gardens eight times every stinking day. My brain has been Bon Jovied at least eighty times in the last two weeks. Eighty freakin times, people.





The first few days of listening to Jon and Richie were great. My co-workers were even making fun of me because of how much I was enjoying the music. I was constantly movin and a groovin to the tunes. For a few days anyway. Then I started wanting to scream every time the dang thing came on. I mean seriously, I get it. The boys are pretty and great to dance to but please, enough already.




Jon Bon Jovi, you are a middle aged man. So shake your money maker all you want, you are still old. The women who have been throwing their undies at you all these years now wear Dr. Dentons. Do you really want those flying through the air like massive parachutes? I mean, come on already. Face reality, man. And Richie Sambora. Please. You give love a bad name, bad name.




I might just be tired and cranky. Yeah, tired of listening to two wrinkled, old men try to convince me I was born to be their baby. All I want to do when they start singing is Runaway. When I heard Whole Lot of Leavin for the fifth time today, I could only nod my head in agreement. Please, leave already. I really try to Keep The Faith but It’s My Life and having to listen to this day after day is no Bed of Roses. This constant diet of Bon Jovi is Bad Medicine. I may be Livin On A Prayer right now but I have to hope there is a Disney movie in next weeks line up.



Anyway, Have A Nice Day.

I could never work in a place with music I don't like. There's a store that plays lame 70's music (Afternoon Delight...gag!) and people always stare at me because I'm muttering, "I hate that song..."

And you're right about old men thinking they're still hot! Actually, Richie never was so I don't know what his deal is.

Maybe because I am so old, but I do like Bon Jovi. However, as much as I like them I would not enjoy listening to them over and over each day. The only music I never tire of each day is hubby's. He works on his music every day and I never get tired of it.

Haha, this totally reminds me of The 40-Year Old Virgin where Paul Rudd's character is ready kill somebody because he's so sick of that video playing ALL the time...was it Kenny Rogers? I forget, someone like that!

Ur soo lucky! Bon jovi is amazing! And he was hot wen he was younger and still is! And richie sambora is handsome still to. And ive listening to all of their songs over a billion times along with frank Sinatra, Elvis, Aerosmith, michael jackson, etc. Thats all i have on my mp3 player! All these new boy band like one direction and Justin bieber, they suck. Now how old do u think I am? I'm 15. Call me old school but today's music doesn't give you the same feeling the classics do.
