Living on a Prayer (lip sync version)

I subscribe to a lot of Groupon/Living Social type emails.   It used to be these sites were mostly restaurants (yay!).    Now it seems like it's a lot of microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, waxing and carpet cleaning (not so yay).
After about a month drought where I didn't buy anything.  Today I hit 2 for 2.   
The first was $25 for $50 at Wash Park Grille.
And then I saw an email from Travel Zoo.   
It must be a mistake. 
$25 for Bon Jovi tickets?
Let me read the fine print to make sure that I'm not missing anything.   Other than the pesky $7.75ish convenience fee, it was legit (I know those fees aren't for my convenience).   In reality it was $65 for 2 tickets.  Still a hell of a deal.
I (along with millions of others) grew up when Slippery When Wet was the big album.   On record.  Or cassette.  
We hadn't arrived at CD's yet.   iTunes wasn't even a glimmer in Apple's eye.
side note:  My first CD was Skid Row.   Parents were appalled.   
My second CD was Paula Abdul's "Straight Up."
The way back machine starts running in my mind.    I'm at a lock in at the YMCA.   A group is lip syncing to "Living on a Prayer."   20+ years later that song still makes me crank it up and sing along at the top of my lungs. 
Ohhhhh half way there
Ohh-ho ________________
Sing that line.
You know you want to.
