Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer mp3 album

Livin' on a Prayer" is Bon Jovi's second chart-topping single from their third album Slippery When Wet. Written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, and Desmond Child, the single, released in late 1986, was well received at both rock and pop radio and its music video was given heavy rotation at MTV, giving the band their first No. 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and their second consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit.

At first, Jon Bon Jovi wanted to leave this off the Slippery When Wet album, thinking it wasn't good enough. According to Jon, a meeting with a group of teenagers changed his mind and it was added to the album. Richie Sambora used a talkbox on this, which gave it a very distinctive sound. A talkbox is an electronic device that allows a guitar player to make distorted sounds with his mouth. Peter Frampton is famous for using one on his 1976 album Frampton Comes Alive, but the technique lost popularity a few years later  . I was back on the loading docks trying/practicing Livin on a Prayer. I wanted to move the song in another direction from the original choosing between priesthood to secular rock world song. Actually Tommy and Gina worked at the store.

Produced by Bruce Fairbairn. Album Slippery When Wet. Livin’ on a Prayer Lyrics. Once upon a time, not so long ago. Tommy used to work on the docks, union's been on strike He's down on his luck, it's tough, so tough Gina works the diner all day, working for her man She brings home her pay for love, mmm, for love. She says, "We've got to hold on to what we've got It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not We've got each other and that's a lot for love We'll give it a shot". The 1987 No. 1 Billboard hit Livin' on a Prayer unexpectedly re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 on November 21, 2013 in the 25th spot. It re-entered the charts after a 2009 video of Boston Celtics basketball fan Jeremy Fry dancing to the rock anthem at Boston’s TD Garden was re-uploaded to YouTube.

Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi.

Livin' on a Prayer (оригинал Bon Jovi). Живя молитвами (перевод Dan UndeaD из Northrend). Было время, Not so long ago. Не так уж и давн. ommy used to work on the docks. Томми работал в доках, Union's been on strike.

We've gotta hold on ready or not You live for the fight when it's all that you've got. Whoa, we're half-way there Whoa, livin' on a prayer Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear Whoa, livin' on a prayer. Thanks to Vishnu Iyer for correcting these lyrics. This song's co-author Desmond Child was brought in by the record company to give Bon Jovi a more commercial sound. The original idea of the album cover was a picture of a Jersey girl in a wet T-shirt, but it was replaced after protests from some parents' group. Still that cover could be seen on the Japanese release. Tommy and Gina from this song were mentioned again in their later song "It's My Life" (2000).

Not so long ago. Tommy used to work on the docks. We've got each other and that's a lot. For love – we'll give it a shot'. We're half way there. Take my hand and we'll make it – I swear. Tommy got his six string in hock. Now he's holding in what he used.
