things that make the heart beat fast

3 reasons to listen to this song non stop today

1. it’s Bon Jovi. that’s all the reason anyone ever needs. mmmhmmmmmmm.
2. approximately 12 years ago i was living for a few months in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. which is right around the time this song came out. MTV India was often on the television in the house i was living in, and this song was in constant rotation. so, strangely enough, every time i hear this particular Jon Bon song, i immediately think of the beauty and craziness of those months many miles from home. it’s a curiously perfect fit.
3. in a few short hours my brother is going to warm up the stage for Jon and the boys in Quebec City. i can hardly believe it. two of my favorite tight-pant wearing rock stars on one stage in one night. i am a proud sister no matter what, but i’m busting at the seams with excitement for the RIKERS boys right now.

oh for the love of big hair and electric guitars, sometimes life is just real good, isn’t it?
