"Wanted Dead Or Alive" by Bon Jovi.

OK, more 80's: Bon Jovi and Sambora penned this '86 rock classic in Richie's mother's basement in less than a day and recorded it on one take (!). Peaked at #7. It likens the life of a rock star to that of an Old West outlaw. Quoting Jon, "(the)lifestyle of every rock band was similar to that of outlaws in that each was a young band of thieves, riding into town, stealing the money, the girls, and the booze before the sun came up." Inspired by Bob Seger's "Turn Of The Page" and Sambora's guitar work by Jimmy Page's. Bon Jovi and Sambora's acoustic rendition during the '89 MTV Video Music awards gave the company the idea for its "Unplugged" series.

Yesterday's answer: "Young At Heart" - great tune by The Chairman of The Board.
