A Playlist for Tonight's Hurricane Sandy Telethon
Bon Jovi, "Bad Medicine": Unlike Springsteen and even Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi has been perfectly happy to keep politics out of the band's music, beyond the everyday blue-collar situations of good hard-working folk who cling to their dreams and their love after the money's all been spent paying the bills. Nothing against "Born to Be My Baby," but I picked "Bad Medicine" because it's always been my favorite from the New Jersey album, which seemed appropriate.
Bon Jovi, "Livin' On a Prayer": Come on. You'd rather them play "Have a Nice Day"?
