I am currently listening to a podcast where they are discussing how things were in 1986, and now I have a #twoamericas question: When you read the words "Slippery When Wet," which do you think of first? Bon Jovi, Or The Commodores?
I was aware of the Commodores but wasn't familiar with that song (was already out of college when it came out).
I found the music industry hype for Bon Jovi to be infuriating -- 'He's just like Springsteen because he's from New Jersey! And he's pop-friendly because he focuses on the fun (meaning no serious issues)!' Another example of the hype machine rolling over far more accomplished musicians.
