Bon Jovi wordt opgericht in 1983 en bestaat uit zanger Jon Bon Jovi, gitarist Richie Sambora, toetsenist David Bryan en drummer Tico Torres. In 1986 heeft de rockband uit New Jersey hun eerste hit met You Give Love A Bad Name en een reeks van vele hits volgt.

In 2000 scoort de band hun eerste nummer 1-hit in de Top 40 met de single It's My Life. Daarna wordt het succes langzaam minder en wordt de top 10 alleen in 2002 nog gehaald met de single Everyday en in 2005 met Have A Nice Day.

In 2014 stapt Richie Sambora om onbekende redenen uit de band. In 2016 verschijnt het laatste album van de band This House Is Not For Sale maar hits worden er niet meer gescoord.


Songtekst

Seven days of Saturday
Is all that I need
Got no use for Sunday
‘Couse I don't rest in peace
Don't need no Mondays
Or the rest of the week
I spend a lot of time in bed
But baby I don't like to sleep no

I won't lie to you
I never gonna cry to you
I'll probably drive you wild 8 days a week

Until I'm 6 feet under
Baby I don't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

So you're looking for some action
I got everything you need
Better keep your motor running
‘Cose I was built for speed
This ain't no slumber party
Got no time for catching z's
If they say that that ain't healthy
Well then living a disease

We're never going to die baby
Come on let me drive you crazy
We'll make every night another New Year's eve

Until I'm 6 feet under
Baby I don't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

Sleep when I'm dead, sleep when I'm dead
Gonna live while I'm alive, I'll sleep when I'm dead

Guitar solo

Seven days of Saturday
Is all that I need
Got no use for Sunday
‘Cose I don't rest in peace
I was born to live
You know I wasn't born to die
But if the party down in heaven
I'll be sure to be on time

Until I'm 6 feet under
Baby I don't need a bed
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till they roll me over
And lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I feel like I'm exploding
Going out of my head
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Till I'm 6 foot under
And they lay my bones to rest
Gonna live while I'm alive
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
Sleep when I'm dead
Gonna live while I'm alive
Sleep when I'm dead
