Bon Jovi – I’ll be there for you
“I’ll be there for you” reached the market on the fourth day of the fourth month in 1989, when Bon Jovi released the third (wrong!) single from “New Jersey”, their fourth album. This song came soon after “Bad medicine” and “Born to be my baby“. It’s a powerful and very intense love ballad, and it immediately reached fans’ hearts. And it was no surprise, honestly, because at those times Bon Jovi were probably at the peak of their fame. This hit reached number one in the charts, and it was the fourth Bon Jovi hit to reach the top, after “You give love a bad name“, “Livin’ on a prayer” and again “Bad medicine”.
Of course this song is a pillar of Bon Jovi’s concerts, and it happended sometimes to find that Richie Sambora was siging it instead of Jon Bon Jovi. It’s not really clear how they came up with this song; some say it’s similar to other hits, others say they had the inspiration from other songs that were never included in any album. I mean, at the end this is not really important. It’s definitely a wonderful song and it has been warming fans hearts for thirty years!
