Today Is The Greatest Day – “Livin’ On A Prayer” Hits #1, YouTube Launches

Living On A Prayer Hits #1 – 1987

On February 14, 1987 Bon Jovi hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart with their scream-along anthem “Livin’ On A Prayer” from the “Slippery When Wet” album. It was released as a single on October 31, 1986 and sold 800,000 copies as a 45 record. Since then it has been certified triple platinum after selling over 3 million digital downloads. It was the second #1 single in a row after “You Give Love a Bad Name” went to #1 the previous year.

YouTube Launches  - 2005

Ironically, after embedding Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On a Prayer” video from YouTube, YouTube was launched on this day in 2005 by 3 former employees of PayPal. The first video uploaded was by co-founder Jawed Karim and was called “Me at the zoo.” It’s really boring and the quality isn’t great, but it is historic.
