Bon Jovi, the iconic rock band that has been captivating audiences for decades, has given us countless anthems and ballads that resonate with fans around the world. However, many may not be as familiar with the impressive solo work of the band's charismatic frontman, Jon Bon Jovi. His solo projects have allowed him to explore new musical territories and showcase the depth of his talent, proving that he is more than just the lead singer of a legendary rock band.

In appreciation of Jon's creative spirit and his ability to deliver unforgettable tunes, with you help we've curated a top ten list of his best solo songs. This collection spans various styles, emotions, and themes, highlighting the singer's knack for storytelling and melody.
The Top Ten
1 Blaze of Glory

Yeah, this is #1 with good reasoning. It's actually #13 on the list of best Bon Jovi songs. Cool music video.

Not sure if it's my fave Jovi song, but it's still a good song after all these years.

2 Santa Fe

I think Never Say Die is ranked higher on the Best Bon Jovi songs list, but this is a cool song too.

Santa Fe is a good song, to say the least. It's my third favorite of the album, but I figured I should put it at #2 because it'll probably get there anyway.

3 Every Word Was a Piece of My Heart

As of now, this is a favorite of his solo songs, only surpassed by Blaze of Glory.

4 Justice In the Barrel
5 Dyin' Ain't Much of a Livin'
6 Learning How to Fall

I have never heard a song that sounds so happy about basically getting beat up. (One sucker punch and I was down / I'm learning how to fall!)

7 August 7, 4:15
8 Cold Hard Heart

How Naked made Destination Anywhere but Cold Hard Heart didn't is beyond me.

9 Destination: Anywhere

Good title track. The album is underrated.

10 Mister Big Time
The Contenders
11 Never Say Die

I used to not care for "Never Say Die," but more recently, I've noticed it resembles "Blood on Blood."

12 Bang a Drum
13 Janie, Don't Take Your Love to Town
14 Beautiful Day

Cheery and refreshing in a way.

15 Billy Get Your Guns
16 Miracle
17 Blood Money
18 Naked

Some sound advice: Look up the album when googling this song. If you don't, you get something that you don't want to see. It's got a good beat, though.

19 Queen of New Orleans

Good, but I still think Queen of New Orleans is dirty to a degree.

20 Midnight in Chelsea

A fun, happy little song. Probably the second-best co-written song. Most of his solo songs are written by him only, but there are a few exceptions.

According to some guy on Amazon, Beautiful Day wasn't written by him at all (how'd he know? It's impossible to dig up stuff about that song). This and Queen of New Orleans were co-written with Dave Stewart (who's he?). Naked was co-written with Mark Hudson and Greg Wells. Sad Song Night was co-written with Desmond Child and Eric Bazilian, and Aldo Nova co-wrote Mister Big Time, which steals the thunder.

21 You Really Got Me Now
22 Not Running Anymore

Not as great as when I first made my top ten account a few months ago, but it's still better than Old Habits Die Hard.

23 Ugly
24 Little City

I understand the end of Little City gets a little weird because of the voices, but I'm pretty sure I've said that the voices make it a great harbinger for August 7, 4:15. If not, I have now.

25 Staring at Your Window with a Suitcase in My Hand

A bit on the invasive side, given the title (dear admin, I am making a joke. Please don't delete my account for that. Thanks). Never hurts to have insurance like that.

Out of all seriousness, I like this song a lot. Won't give a lecture over it, though.
