"This Ain't a Love Song" is the lead single from Bon Jovi's 1995 album These Days. It reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, #11 on the Mainstream Top 40[1] and it reached #6 on the UK Singles Chart. The song is an example of the strong rhythm and blues influence that Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora wanted the These Days album to have, and the final result by the Q is alternative rock according the critics of the magazine. The official music video was shot in Ayuthayya, Thailand. A Spanish version, "Como Yo Nadie Te Ha Amado," was also recorded, however the Spanish version is different from the original because the lyrics are different and it talks about how nobody really love the two people that are in a relationship. Mexican singer Yuridia covered the Spanish version on her debut album La Voz de un Ángel which peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.[2] Yuridia's cover led to Jon Bon Jovi winning an ASCAP Latin Award in the Pop/Ballad field.[3]
