It's My Life (Bon Jovi)
It's my life (song)Edit
Jon Bon Jovi about the song: When I was writing "It's My Life", I thought I was writing very self-indulgently about my own life and where I was in it. I didn't realize that the phrase "It's My Life" would be taken as being about everyone--by teenagers, by older guys, mechanics, whatever. "It's my life, and I'm taking control". Everyone kind of feels that way from time to time.
It's My Life features Will Estes as Tommy and Shiri Appleby as Gina as the two main characters of the video. At the beginning, Tommy is watching a video of the concert on his computer. Gina calls and during the whole video, Tommy is running to the Bon Jovi concert to meet up with her. Then he runs through the streets of Los Angeles trying to get there. He is getting chased by dogs, running a marathon, and posing for pictures and jackknifing a truck.
