The title and sentiment are pretty generic, but in the hands of Bon Jovi, "I'll Be There For You" drips with passion. Compare to the other famous song with that title
, the Friends
theme by The Rembrandts. In that one, you get the sense that they'll hand you an umbrella if it's raining and maybe give you a ride to the airport, but that's about it. Bon Jovi will live and die for you; steal the sun from the sky for you; be the air for you. It's unconditional.
