On this day in music history: February 14, 1987 - “Livin’ On A Prayer” by Bon Jovi hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks. Written by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and Desmond Child, it is the second number one single for the rock band from Sayreville, NJ. One of four songs Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora write with musician and songwriter Desmond Child (Aerosmith, Ricky Martin), the final released take of “Livin’ On A Prayer” is actually the second version of the song recorded by the band. The first version is scrapped after Bon Jovi isn’t happy with the initial results. “Prayer” is nearly left off of the album before Sambora convinces Bon Jovi to rework it, adding a new bass line, drum fills and the songs signature talk box. Released as the second single from the bands third album “Slippery When Wet” in November of 1986, “Prayer” quickly follows “You Give Love A Bad Name” to the top. Entering the Hot 100 at #83 on December 13, 1986, it climbs to the top of the chart nine weeks later. The original LP and single versions of “Prayer” end on a fade at the 4:09 mark, the full unedited version running nearly five minutes surfaces on the video game “Guitar Hero World Tour”, and on the 2005 DualDisc release of “Slippery When Wet”. “Livin’ On A Prayer” is certified 2x Platinum (as a digital download) in the US by the RIAA.

A/N: So, this story is rooted in my own personal experience at 25. Obviously the guy wasn’t Dean fucking Winchester, but oh if he had been. *whew* Thank you Mimi and Erin for helping me see the issues and get them resolved. I know that a lot of you have been EAGERLY anticipating this fic. I REALLY hope it doesn’t disappoint you. It got lengthy and a little out of control and WILL have one more part. - I know it’s an HOUR LATE. SORRY!
Summary: You were a good girl. You went off to a private Christian college because you knew there was a bad girl waiting to be set free. You wanted a career, so you made a choice. You went away. You didn’t smoke. Didn’t drink until you were 21. No bars until you were 23. Didn’t have sex until you were in love, or at least you thought you were in love. You’ve always liked who you are, but there was a pretty distinct shift when you were 25. Five friends. One guy. One piano. One drink. One bar. Everything changed. You’re different now, and you’re certain you’ll never forget that leather jacket or those green eyes. Jan. 24th, 2012. The day Dean Winchester rolled through town.
