"Everyday" is a song by American rock band Bon Jovi. It was released on August 17, 2002 as the lead single from the band's eighth studio album Bounce (2002). The song was written and produced by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and Andreas Carlsson. "Everyday" was nominated at the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

Background[edit]

"Everyday" is a song of independence and defiance, similar to "It's My Life" and "Have A Nice Day".

Speaking in a video interview, Jon claims, "We went after something that was a little more aggressive than (what) we had done before, but still had a big chorus, and had something to say".[2] In reference to the song, Richie Sambora added, "Time is the most precious thing that you have, so you should try to live every moment to the fullest".[2]

"Everyday" was later featured on the band's This Left Feels Right album in an acoustic style. In Asia, this song was used as the background for Mitsubishi TV adverts throughout 2002-2003.

Music video[edit]

It is said that Joseph Kahn directed the music video for "Everyday", although this is not confirmed on his website. The music video shows the band performing in New Mexico by the VLA Radio Telescopes, while different cities around the world are "hit" by numerous red TV boxes (Bon Jovi appears on the screens as the huge telescopes send out the signal all over the world). The people from these cities seem to be bored, but as soon they watch the TVs, they "start having fun".
