Also, Bon Jovi and/or Jon Bon Jovi have come up multiple times in both student presentations and textbooks, strangely enough. One student played this song (but not the video… I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, though):
Don’t get me wrong, I really like both Bon Jovi (the group) and Jon Bon Jovi (the lead singer’s handle when going solo), but they were best around the time of New Jersey and Slippery When Wet, when they seemed more like a trashy, glammy, East Coast version of John Mellencamp times four or five (evidently I like Bon Jovi, but not enough to know how many people are in the band).
Hmm, where was I going with all this? Oh yes, music and videos in class. Well, guess I got off on a tangent there, so I may as well put up a few more Bon Jovi videos. Here’s what I’m talking about:
I guess my second conditional phrase of the day is this: “If I were Beyoncé, I would call up Bon Jovi to collaborate on a concept album about a rocket-powered Chevy full of single ladies rocking in space.”
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
