Thank yous, EMAs and Greatest Hits news

Hi Joviacs,

Let me first extend my apologies for not being as "on the ball" with this blog as I'd like to be. I'm in my final month of the semester so with assignments, as well as my other (paid) writing commitments, I haven't had as much time to scour videos and news as I'd like. But after this month, I'll be free to feed the blog with all the Jersey boy nutrition it deserves. ;)

Thanks for the continued readership, support, comments, tweets, likes, etc. They do not go unappreciated! I blog as much for you guys as I do for my own crazy love. ;)

Secondly, Bon Jovi will be presented with the Global Icon award at MTV Europe Music Awards in Madrid on November 7, 2010:
"There's no question that Bon Jovi has achieved iconic status across the globe and is widely recognized as one of the most beloved and influential rock bands of all time," said Bruce Gillmer, Executive Vice President, Music and Talent, Programming/Events, MTV Networks International.

"Over the years, MTV and Bon Jovi have given fans an incredible array of amazing and unique experiences and we are thrilled to honour such a seminal act as Bon Jovi with the first-ever MTV EMA Global Icon award."

Thirdly, Australian fans can pre-order the Greatest Hits from JB Hi-Fi for the chance to win 2 VIP packages to the third Sydney show on December 19. You can listen to some more clips of the new songs on Amazon.

Based on these, the previews on iTunes, and previously released snippets -- which Savvi has kindly edited together -- here are the lyrics (I think) for each song so far:

"No Apologies" --
Double down the devil at Three-Card Monte
No apology, he just knew when to quit
Push your luck, say your prayers
Make believe you don't care
Take a chance, sometimes it's all you need
No apologies
No apologies (no apologies)
We will not back down (no apologies)
We are not afraid (no apologies)
Not a drop of doubt (no apologies)
Hand in hand across this land
Our voices shouting out...

"This Is Love, This Is Life" --
We ain't got much but what we got is all that matters
We're pickin' up the pieces, tryin' to put 'em back where they belong
Ohh, it's gonna be alright
This is love, this is life
When times get tough we're still worth the fight
This is love, this is life
The road here's paved with the brokenhearted
We gotta finish what we started
Ohhh, better hold on tight
This is love, this is life
These days it seems like there's...

"The More Things Change" --
I tell you one more time with feeling
Even though this world is reeling
You're still you and I'm still me
I didn't mean to cause a scene
But I guess it's time to roll up our sleeves
The more things change the more they stay the same
The same sunrise, it's just another day
If you hang in long enough they say you're coming back
Just take a look, we're living proof and baby that's a fact
You know the more things change the more they stay the same
The more things change the more they stay the same
You're either runnin' round in circles or you're runnin' out of time
Everybody somewhere either...

Based on these previews, which songs do you like/dislike?
