The last time Jon Bon Jovi wrote and performed a song for a movie, he won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar. That was "Blaze of Glory" from "Young Guns 2" -- but it was 22 years ago.

He's giving it another try.

Bon Jovi wrote and performed two songs for the upcoming criminal buddy movie "Stand Up Guys," out in February. He says the song "Old Habits Die Hard" was inspired directly from a line in the first scene when old friends see each other again.

He says the other song, "Not Running Anymore," is about criminals on the run and he had to put himself in a confessional and "be that Catholic school boy one more time."
