Bon Jovi wordt opgericht in 1983 en bestaat uit zanger Jon Bon Jovi, gitarist Richie Sambora, toetsenist David Bryan en drummer Tico Torres. In 1986 heeft de rockband uit New Jersey hun eerste hit met You Give Love A Bad Name en een reeks van vele hits volgt.

In 2000 scoort de band hun eerste nummer 1-hit in de Top 40 met de single It's My Life. Daarna wordt het succes langzaam minder en wordt de top 10 alleen in 2002 nog gehaald met de single Everyday en in 2005 met Have A Nice Day.

In 2014 stapt Richie Sambora om onbekende redenen uit de band. In 2016 verschijnt het laatste album van de band This House Is Not For Sale maar hits worden er niet meer gescoord.


Songtekst

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up, just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease

I ain't got a fever, got a permanent disease
And it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
I got lots of money but it isn't what I need
Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison out of me

And I got all the symptoms count 'em one, two, three

First you need (That's what you get for falling in love)
Then you bleed (You get a little and it's never enough)
And when you're on your knees (That's what you get for falling in love)

Now this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug, ohoho

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up, just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine

I don't need no needle to be giving me a thrill
And I don't need no anesthesia or a nurse to bring a pill
I got a dirty down addiction that doesn't leave a track
I got a jolt for your affection like a monkey on my back

There ain't no paramedic, gonna save this heart attack

When you need (That's what you get for falling in love)
Then you bleed (You get a little and it's never enough)
And when you're on your knees (That's what you get for falling in love)
Now this boy's addicted 'cause your kiss is the drug, ohoho

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up, just like bad medicine
So let's play doctor, baby, cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine (That's what I want)
Bad, bad medicine

I need a respirator 'cause I'm running out of breath
Well, you're an all night generator wrapped in stockings and a dress
When you find your medicine, you'll take what you can get
'Cause if there's something better, baby, well, they haven't found it yet

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up, just like bad medicine
There ain't no doctor that can cure my disease

Your love, like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up, just like bad medicine
Your love's the potion that can cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine (That's what I want)
Bad, bad medicine

I gotta go, I gotta, I gotta go, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta
I gotta do it again, wait a minute, wait a minute
Hold on, I'm not done
One more time, with feeling
Come on!
Alright, help me out now

Your love is like bad medicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Ohoho, shake it up just like bad medicine
Your got the potion that can cure my disease

Your love, bad medicine
Your kiss is what I need
Your love, bad medicine
