Now the 80s can really start! This was Bon Jovi’s first big hit – it reached UK#14 and was their first to make the top 40, and their second hit overall. It peaked in September, and was back in the chart for one last time, on this day in the 80s, at #92. They have had 38 hits since ’85, but have not yet had a #1 – the closest being “Always”, at #2.
In the US, this was their first of 4 #1s. They have had 26 hits in all, of which this was the fifth, and first to reach the top 30.
Shot through the heart, and you’re to blame
