In honor of Bon Jovi night on American Idol, I've been listening to Cross Road, the greatest hits CD my sister got me for my birthday a few years ago. It was something I didn't even know I wanted until she gave it to me, and then I was thrilled. Really.
I never owned any Bon Jovi albums growing up, but "Livin' on a Prayer" and "You Give Love a Bad Name" will always be associated with after-school dances in the old gym at Innes and skating on Saturdays at the Arena Roller Rink. Good times. Well, unless I think about it too long, and then it gets kind of depressing.
