An earlier post mentioning Dr. Hook's Sylvia's Mother, penned by Shel
Silverstein, had one of coolest dosers awash in nostalgia (turns out she used to listen to that ditty over and over again on good ol' K-tel vinyl when she was but a child). For her, and everyone else, here's a treat from my
"unlikely covers" file, New Jersey's other favorite son (and
indestructible pretty boy) Bon Jovi does his version of Dr. Hook's
first hit (#5 in '72) live at the Borgata in Atlantic City. Perhaps not so unlikely a
cover considering most of Dr. Hook's members were also from New Jersey—Union City to be precise.
