4 stars for me, though I think the original version and acoustic version could be rated separately since they are so different. (I'd give both 4 stars). The original unreleased version has a really old school, early PJ sound. Love the guitar riff. Not quite as good as the other Ten era songs (which are almost all 5 stars to me) so I can see why it didnt make it. In retrospect though its still pretty good. Im not a huge fan of the changes they made for Lost Dogs. Its such on early PJ sounding song, that it works best with early PJ Eddie style vocals- not re-recorded vocals. hate that idea in general.

I actually think the acoustic version might be superior though. Such a warm rich sound to me. I think some subtle bass and drums would have made this a real solid complete tune. But as it is I still dig it. Unearthed gems like this make me hungry for more reissues and/or Lost Dogs 2.

So many Pearl Jam fans are closet Bon Jovi fans.

This song is probably in my bottom 3. Absolute shit.

The only thing shittier is the acoustic version (which inexplicably got a lot of love when it was first released).

I accidentally picked this in the last PJ tournament, mistakenly thinking of Hold Me.


edit: which on another listen isn't much better but has the benefit of being a live improv

i love this improv

not sure how this make sense. So Hold On is a Bon Jovi-ish song? I dont hear that at all.

wait I got it.
"riding on top a black horse"-EV
"on a steel horse I ride"-JBJ

you were right.

I actually really dislike Bon Jovi by the way. I stand by Hold On.

Hold On sounds so much like a Bon Jovi song it's ridiculous.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with liking a Bon Jovi song. I kind of like that one "Misunderstood".

you're right, it was rude of me - what i should say is it's ok to like a song that's indicative of the period of time it came out of... i look at hold on as being one of those songs.
