I can’t believe it’s been eight years since Bon Jovi released “It’s My Life,” and that I still like it as much as anything on the Slippery When Wet album. I feel like I should be ashamed of that (like when I admit that “Love Bites” is my favorite Def Leppard song, or that I love the Cure’s “Mint Car”) but I can’t be. I’m as excited to hear it as Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles was to sing it with Bon Jovi at their 2005 CMT Crossroads concert (below). You’ve got to hear her belt out “This is for the ones who stood their ground.” I get chills.
Who else loves this song?
