I love the fact that even though the beat sounds familiar each song is written from a different perspective. And remember this is only my opinion. Kings & Queens seems to present the perspective of an independent woman who’s certain that her partner can’t live without her. Whereas You Give Love A Bad Name by Bon Jovi seems to blame one of the partners for all of the problems in the relationship—Like how does a relationship like that work out. Finally, my favorite song by Bon Jovi, Livin’ On A Prayer seems to present a couple who can make it through anything as long as they have each other and work together.
I have a couple of reasons for having a special affinity for Livin’ On A Prayer. First, I have gone to several events in which the crowd warmer had the audience sing this song—I guess you can say it brings back good memories. Also, I’m hooked on Livin’ On A Prayer’s message.
I have posted the YouTube videos for Kings & Queens, You Give Love A Bad Name, and Livin’ On A Prayer below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Have an amazing week & stay safe! -Andrea
