Jon Bon Jovi is calling on fans to enter a new contest in which they sing Bon Jovi's new song, “Limitless.” The catch is — they don't know how the song goes. Fans can log on with the mobile devices to SingBonJovi.com, check out the lyrics and sing along to the song's backing track — which doesn't have a top melody, meaning the poster needs to make up the melody for themselves.
Ultimate Classic Rock explained: “Posting the video to Instagram Stories with the hashtag #SingBonJoviContest automatically enters the recording into a contest, with the best versions shared on the band's Instagram feed. The winner — which the band will determine and announce when they release the whole single — will get to sing 'Limitless' on stage with Bon Jovi during their upcoming summer tour with Bryan Adams.”
Jon Bon Jovi can't overestimate the importance of a killer song title: “Typically — not always — but typically, it does starts with a title. For me, that dictates the feel and then, subsequently, the chord progression and a story; the lyrics. But a lot of times, y'know, the title tells you the story.”
