Singalong! It's My Life by Bon Jovi

When this song came out, I was OBSESSED. I played it for everyone who was captive in my vehicle, saying, "It's awesome, isn't it? This song is AWESOME!!!" I even tried to convince my ballet class to do our year-end recital dance to this song. I repeat: I tried really hard to convince other people that we should do ballet to It's My Life by Bon Jovi. (Full disclosure: I still think that could be a cool ballet, but whatever.)

Also, let's take a moment for the classic music video move: band sets up on the street and rocks out to throngs of young people who appear out of nowhere in the traffic jam, while young man risks life and limb to get there in time.


IT'S MY LIFE
by Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
It's for Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder, make no mistake
Luck ain't enough
You've got to make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
It's my life

You better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
