Best Bon Jovi Songs

The Top Ten
1 Livin' on a Prayer Livin' on a Prayer Cover Art

Yeah! The Best song of Bon Jovi of course...! When you say Justin Bieber I say without problems... BON JOVI! I'm 15 years and I think that the boys who think that Justin Bieber is better than old rock are stupids.

This is definitely the best bon jovi song, for me and for many others. Even the kids that listen to crap these days think that it's a good song. I'm suprised that "dead or alive" wasn't up here in second though. I'm 14, and I am all out against Justin beiber and all pop/rap... Music that my friends listen to sucks, lets just leave it at that.

I am 13 and am IN LOVE with Jon Bon Jovi (John Bongiovi Jr. ), Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres. Justin Bieber, One Direction, all of them, in my opinion, suck. Todays music is really bad and I like to live in the world of Bon Jovi, Queen, Journey, etc. I would have been great in the 80's and 90's... My hair sure is big enough!

Pure Classic, There is now competition when bon jovi comes around, this is probably their most famous song, and its well worth that title, I've been listening to this since I was 5, why you ask? because it pure amazing! Bon jovi is an inspiration to everyone, do you know he traveled ALL THE WAY to Egypt just to support them during their rough times, he even wrote a song for them [no apologies] Bon jovi, keep rocking because you have many loyal fans and your such an inspiration

2 It's My Life It's My Life Cover Art

I absolutely love this song. I always believed that Livin' On a Prayer should have been number one until I discovered this song. I personally believe it should be above Livin' On a Prayer and should be at the top spot. Amazing song! Cannot wait to watch their tour, Because We Can, in Manchester next year. Go Bon Jovi!

This ain't a song for the brokenhearted
No silent prayer for the faith departed
And 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!

There seriously is no competition with a song like "Its My Life" around.. Really, one would have to say that it deserves the top spot. Move over Livin' On A Prayer!

This song deserves the number 1 spot. This is my list:
1. It's my life
2. Ill be there for you
3. Always
4. Santa fe
5. Bed of roses
6. Livin on a prayer
7. Wanted dead or alive
8. Stay
9. Dry county
10. Blaze of glory
11. Rivers run dry
12. Wild is the wind
13. You give love a bad name
14. All about lovin' you
15. Thank you for loving me

3 You Give Love a Bad Name You Give Love a Bad Name Cover Art

This is my favorite song even now here in 2012. I love listening to it and playing on guitar hero. I think this should be his top song. I never stop listening to it, I probably never will. I mean livin' on a prayer isn't that great. I listen to it non stop on the bus.

One of the best rock songs ever, by far their best, needs to be #1!
You give love a bad name
In these Arms
Bad Medicine
It's my life
Wanted dead or alive
Livin on a prayer
Lay your hands on me
Keep the faith
Have a nice day
Bed of Roses
That'smy top 10 Jon Bon songs!

The most kick ass song of all time. When you hear it you just get that super psyched feeling rising up in your chest and you want to shout and dance and be awesome. I love everthing by Bon Jovi but this is definitely the best.

They say "it's my life" is the best but this completly false just a full classic Bon Jovi track like "You give love a bad name" can be their best. A true classic old, but gold Bon Jovi song what is their best!

4 Wanted Dead or Alive Wanted Dead or Alive Cover Art

I think this is the defining Bon Jovi song. It never really proved popular in the charts though it was released perhaps more than any of their other songs, but it definitely defines Bon Jovi pre 21st century. As music, the track is put together exceptionally well and for that reason you still discover things in it you've missed even when you're listening to it for the 150th time.

Great song, instantly recognizable even in the background of countless T.V. shows or movies, a rock classic, great visual imagery, inspires new guitarists - just unmatched!

Love this song it's amazing. First heard it off supernatural the T.V. series (please watch it, you will love it! ) when dean and sam where singing it it made me love it even more!

For me this is the best. However, in the rest of the world, they preffer Livin on a prayer and It's my life. But in the end of the day, and the thing everyone should take into acount is that everybody is entitled to an opinion

5 Always Always Cover Art

Come on now, guys. Livin' on a Prayer and It's My Life are 'great' songs by Bon Jovi but they just can't go near to this song. Always is the only song where Jon gave so much emotion not to mention the solo was EPIC!

'Through the wind, through the snow, through the driving rain
I'd crawl all the way home oh baby, baby, baby.

To be back in your arms, just to taste your kiss.

Just to hear you say baby are you alright when I'm not there. ' - Additional lyrics of this song from their 1995 concert in London, pure awesomeness!

I disagree with the opinions of others, that "Living in a prayer" and It's my life" are better than this one... NO! No way! Yes, I admit those two are great songs too, but "Always"... It's just epic.. You can feel Jon giving all his energy, emotions and soul singing this.. I love all of BJ songs, but "Always" was the one introducing me to this great band and I haven't stopped loving it till that moment..

Always is most definitely the most passionate, beautiful and powerful song of Bon Jovi's. It is a definition of true love the lyrics are more meaningful than any song these days. If you listen to the chorus you can here how much meaning he has put into the song. It can relate to anyone in true love who would give up anything for that one special person.
That's just my opinion. I love this song.

The sweetest and most amazing harmony, it's such a big song of my childhood and it's still my favourite ballad. ( isn't it everyone's? :) ) once you hear Always, you can't stop replaying it louder and louder in your head, I wish radio stations would play more of this beautiful music because nowadays all we hear is nowadays music, no one remembers what real music sounds like.

PS. My favourite lyrics to this,
Now the pictures that you left behind are just memories of a different life Some that made us laugh some made us cry one that made you have to say goodbye ;')

6 Bad Medicine Bad Medicine Cover Art

One of their US number ones, its definitely up there. Insanely catchy and very rocky. One of the best songs to showcase their brilliance.

Come on, how on earth "you give love a bad name" and "wanted dead or alive" are ranked above this song. Open your ears for crying out loud Bad Medicine is so much better than wanted dead or alive. I just can't believe the tastes of people. I just cannot.

What is this one doing down at #10?
Easily the best Bon Jovi song ever!
The New Jersey is very underrated on this list. NY and SWW are head and shoulders above the rest of the Jovi catalog!

This song's obviously underrated and deserves a higher place on the list. Probably the best Bon Jovi song ever

7 Bed of Roses Bed of Roses Cover Art

Beautiful. Definitely the greatest Bon Jovi song with the best guitar solo ever created by Richie Sambora and awesomeness from Jon Bon Jovi David Bryan and Tico Torres.
Truly the best song Bon Jovi has ever written

One of the best songs I have ever heard... I wish I could sing this song with that passion and emotion... It's the best song...No other song I've ever heard can surpass this emotion...Hats off to Jovi...

Well I cannot NOT listen to this number each night. Its an awesome love song, has to be my BON JOVI favorite. The tune is arresting and the vocals, befitting!

This is my ultimate favorite song the best love song you can get to dance with the one you love and will always make a commitment to that person. If I get married it's the song to open the dance the first dance off the night

8 Runaway Runaway Cover Art

Runaway is exceptional. It was on their first album which was way below the standards of their later albums, yet it's a song that holds its own and deserves to make it onto later greatest hits albums, which indeed it does. This song really sets a standard for this band and shows what they are capable of. It shows them as having the potential to be one of the best rock bands in the world though you can tell they aren't quite there yet.

Runaway is my favorite Bon Jovi song. You have to love the keyboard and guitar solos. So much meaning to the song as well. All of their songs are good, but this one is best.

Get this in the top 10. Without this, most of us would never have heard Livin On a Prayer, because this put Bon Jovi on the map

Haven't you heard the acoustic version? Time to listen and cry if not! It is beautiful. Just beautiful

9 Have a Nice Day Have a Nice Day Cover Art

By far my favourite. The lyrics the level of rock and awesomeness of the song. It just makes this song awesome. Only real music fans appreciate songs like this. Fantastic song!

Love this song. God Damn. If only I could yell the lyrics to my dad's face. In All honesty this song is great for people who want to get their parent's off their case.

The catchy guitar part and the incredible lyrics make this song legendary. It's very underrated, and it's only rivaled by Living on a Prayer in my opinion.

I thought bon jovi can't get any better than It's my Life, but when I heard this... My ears were in heaven.

Also, the lyrics are just pure GENIUS. GENIUSS.

10 I'll Be There for You I'll Be There for You Cover Art

Sounds like an inverse Wild Is the Wind. Wild Is the Wind is about some guy who leaves his girlfriend/wife because he knows he's not good enough for her; I'll Be There for You is about the girlfriend/wife threatening to leave the boyfriend/husband, and his pleas and promises if she stays. Of course, the similarities end there, and aren't even that strong, but still.

Oh My God! U can't believe that this wonderful song with heart touching lyrics and good guitar solo is in the 11th position. Its impossible. This song deserves Position in the Top 5. I sure everyone will love this song and if possible you will sing it your lover.

"I'll be there for you, this 5 words I swear to you, when you breath I want to be the air for you, I'll be there for you"

This song is just amazing. No matter where I am I can't help but sing a long and it makes me so happy. It's the best song I've ever heard, it's legendary. The lyrics, the singing, the solos, the... EVERYTHING. Ugh, ORGASM AHHAHAH

This is the most beautiful song I ever heard, it'll be my favorite song ever, one single word to describe it... Amazing!

The Contenders
11 Dry County Dry County Cover Art

This song is an underrated, beautiful epic about drought, with crazy great solos, a powerful singing voice, the best bon jovi drumming and absolutely gorgeous piano. It's just not very popular, that's why not that much people know it, but who knows it certainly should vote for it!
Even though I'm a big Zeppelin fan, I must admit, if this song was released by them, it'd be on my top 3 Led Zeppelin songs! I love Bon Jovi, and without this they'd be a great band, but this is the track that takes them from great to legendary, not Livin on a Prayer.

This song has a bit of everything. The songs above this are deserved of tops spots but Dry COunty just has so much power and meaning from beginning to end. The powerful lyrics, the meditative beginning, the awesome chrous and the best guitar solo of all their songs, Dry County has a nostalgic punch for me that I can't ignore. Best song from one of the best albums.

Not my favourite Bon Jovi song but I simply think it has to be higher. An absolute epic of a song with ups and downs in all the right places. Great lyrics, great guitar solo and is certainly better than some of the songs higher up on this list.

The best song ever. Awesome solo! I just love to listen to this song. Truelly the best Bon Jovi song to ever be made. This should be at the top. Not in fourth! Why are you guys be so mean to this song? Have you ever listened to it. If you haven't then listen to it!

12 Born to Be My Baby Born to Be My Baby Cover Art

This song should be in the top 10!
Good beginning, good lyrics, good guitar, good drums, good keyboard..
It's a great song! Bon jovi forever
wo

This song change my life. Should be in the first 10.

Great song to watch live..

13 Blaze of Glory Blaze of Glory Cover Art

My personal favorite! Made for the AWESOME movie that is Young Guns!

Livin' on a Prayer and You Give Love a Bad Name (if you were a teen in 80's) was WAY overplayed and no I can't stand hearing them.

Simply one of their best. More people should put this song on the top 10 jovi list as its just as good as wanted dead or alive if not better.

Are you kidding me!
9th position..
Just read the lyrics of this song. Jon Bon Jovi has sang them with such vocals that they will blow you off.

One of my all time favorites. Love the feel of the song and the 'devil may care' attitude. Just love it.

14 Lay Your Hands on Me Lay Your Hands on Me Cover Art

This has always been my favourite Bon Jovi song, purely because the riff and guitar work is incredible, and Jon's voice is absolutely on top form. Musically it's really, really good, with the African sounding drums at the beginning, the smooth synth bit later, the gospel sounding choir sound at the end. It's fabulous, and I think the only reason it was never as big a hit as the others is because it's too heavy for many.

This is 17? Yea right...this is easily in the top 3. My personal favorite song, even better than Livin on a Prayer. This song is an anthem.

Pure Hard Rock love it

15 Keep the Faith Keep the Faith Cover Art

I would say that Keep the Faith is the best song Bon Jovi ever wrote and released. It's very different to their usual stuff and they've never really written another song like it. But it's right up there with their very, very best. The lyrics are superb. The guitar solo may be the best one. The bass riff, the chorus, the finale "I've been walking in the footsteps". It's really special. It actually did very well in the UK charts compared to their others.

There are few songs done by ANYONE that the melody and the lyrics come together to create such a cohesive explosion of emotion. It gets to the very core of who we are, the struggle to maintain good versus evil. EPIC.

This song just moves everything inside of me! There is no other song as powerful as keep the faith, it's not only the lyrics and the message, it's the music, best guitar, best drums, best base ever!

This is the most underrated Bon Jovi song. The instruments and vocals cause such an emotional feeling and it's amazing. Definitely the best song, at least top 10 worthy.

16 Never Say Goodbye Never Say Goodbye Cover Art

Absolutely beautiful song which moved my heart. Should be way higher on the list.

17 No Apologies No Apologies Cover Art

I love most of Bon Jovi's songs and though I wouldn't put this at number one it should be a lot higher, top ten at least, great song!

It's an okay song, but in retrospect, it's almost just Jon saying "No apologies" over and over

18 In These Arms In These Arms Cover Art

Maybe people that hear this song never stopped to hear with a open heart. It's so amazing! Make we feel like we're in love, crazy in love for somebody, even we're not...

To me, the best LOVE SONG of Bon Jovi.
Love, love, love.

Powerful song! In my opinion is the best because reminds me my High School times and my first girlfriend. Rest of songs are wonderful, however. Best regards from Madrid!

This is a masterpiece song by Bon Jovi, the guitar riffs and the vocals are amazing. Conveys a very powerful emotion!

By far the most underrated Bon Jovi and such beautiful lyrics that get me every time. Just has to be in the top 10.

19 Living in Sin Living in Sin Cover Art

Most underrated song of bon jon jovi, he has expressed himself to extreme in this one.

20 Something to Believe In Something to Believe In Cover Art

This has to be up there. Apart from Keep the Faith, it's their most unique song. It's obviously an incredibly personal insight into Jon's own psychology: his longing to believe in God and in religion, but the profound struggles he has with doing so. It's without doubt Jon's best vocal performance, and I think one of the best performances by any rock singer. Musically it's spectacular and you'd never know you were listening to a Bon Jovi song if it weren't for Jon's distinctive voice. It is the real gem of the These Days album and perhaps they should have called that album after this song because it sums up this band a lot better than the title they went for.

This song should totally be higher in the ratings... It's definitely top 10 material! Just listen to it, and I know you'll agree with me. Just listen to this song, and then listen to Living on a Prayer and you tell me that Ling on a Prayer is better... It's just not possible! Vote for this!

This song is my anthem. Or one of them, anyway. Perfect song for someone like myself, who can't get some glory for my talents. It makes me angry and sad at the same time if that makes sense.

If this song ever had air time on the radio, it would be in the top 3 of this list FACT.
People need to stop listening to the singles and explore the albums more.

21 Someday I'll Be Saturday Night Someday I'll Be Saturday Night Cover Art

This gets me trough the entire week... amazing song, can't stop listening to it!
I'm feeling like a monday but someday I'll be saturday night

This song is amazing... Sounds feels great can't stop listening.. Vote for it now..

Cheers you up every time you are feeling low... Should at least be in the top 15...

Amazing song, Cheers me up whenever I'm feeling down.

22 We Weren't Born to Follow We Weren't Born to Follow Cover Art

The best ever Bon Jovi song, although it's really close with No Apologies. It should be rated loads higher than 30th after all it is on their greatest hits album whereas lots of these other tracks are not.

Gives you confidence about life with its amazing lyrics. Should be higher than 24 in my opinion.

This is a great song to pump you up along with born to be my baby and bad medicine it's my favourite, can't believe it's so low on this list, I mean it's just pure awesome

It's just awesome. And so is the rest of The Circle.

23 This Ain't a Love Song This Ain't a Love Song Cover Art

Yet another song that sounds a lot like I'll Be There for You. I don't think it's spectacular (perhaps because it sounds like I'll Be There for You,) but it's a good song, and I'm surprised that it went from somewhere around #15 or so to #42

Best in every aspect.
the lyrics, the feels, the chord progression, how jon sing. Totally fall in love with this wonderful peace of creation

Its way underrated

Too bad it's not a love song because this is one of the top 10 ballads of all time - by anyone.

Why is this work of art in #19? It has such a beautiful sound and a deep meaning.

24 My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms Cover Art

The best Bon Jovi song, this and "Something To Believe In" are my favorite.
This song is so emotional and deep it just makes me cry. Gets me through every time I'm feeling down are depressed.

Who said misery likes company? I'm gonna coin that as one of the stupidest phrases. But I regress. I feel a sense of empathy with Jon in this song.

This song is just filled with emotions. It will make you at least shed a tear, unless you are made of stone. Definitely deserves to be top 5.

Great guitar, scream and awesome riffs. Great efforts Bon jovi. Keep it up.
Please do songs like this. Energetic!

25 Lost Highway Lost Highway Cover Art

Lost Highway's a pretty good song. I don't know about being inspirational (although it is that, too apparently.) Lost Highway is becoming my favorite song from the album

Very inspiring, beautiful song, truly amazing. It deserves to be appriciated.

It's inspiring, very nice...

Come On... It's a top 10 song...
