Accepting an honorary degree from Rutgers-Camden today at the Susquehanna Bank Center, Jon Bon Jovi debuted a new song written for the occasion. The Associated Press identified the title as “Reunion.”
“Write your song, sing along, love your life/Learn to laugh, dare to dance, touch the sky,” Bon Jovi sang in the inspirational, uptempo song, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. “Take pictures each step of the way/Make this the best of the rest of your days/Start your revolution/And I’ll see you at the reunion.”

New Jersey celebrated its 350th birthday last year. And in the 350 Jersey Songs series, we are marking the occasion by posting 350 songs — one a day, for almost a year — that have something to do with the state, its musical history, or both. We started in September 2014, and will keep going until late in the summer.
