Today I’ll be covering “Raise Your Hands” which is the first in a new series of covers I’ll be doing of some Bon Jovi classics.
The song is characterized by squealing guitars, propulsive hooks, an epic solo, and gang vocals in the chorus. It debuted at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
It was a big ’80s anthem from their multi-platinum breakthrough album Slippery When Wet which was an instant commercial success. The album features songs that are considered Bon Jovi’s best known.
The album spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and was named by Billboard as the top-selling album of 1987. Slippery When Wet is Bon Jovi’s best-selling album to date and is one of the top 100 best-selling albums in the United States. The album was featured in the 2005 book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

““It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
