Bon Jovi Livin on a prayer performed live. This was Bon Jovi's second single off the Slippery When Wet album released in latter part of 1986. The song was written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora. Jon didn't like the tune it was Sambora that convinced him to release it. Voted number 1 on the VH1 list of the Top 100 songs of the 80's. The music video starts off with black and white shots of the band rehearsing and the second half switches to colour as Bon Jovi play live to a sold out arena. Check out the harness on Jon Bon Jovi which is used later in the video to catapult him into the crowd. Livin' On a Prayer is still seen as Bon Jovi's signature tune over 30 years later.
