Bryan Adams top 5 songs
1. (Everything I do) I do it for you
“(Everything I do) I do it for you” is one of the most beautiful ballad he ever written. It’s taken from 1991’s film “Robin Hood: Prince of thieves” and included on his sixth album “Waking up the neighbours”.
2. Summer of ’69
Released in 1985, “Summer of ’69” served as “Reckless” album fourth single. About the song, Bryan told: “It’s a very simple song about looking back on the summertime and making love. For me, the ’69 was a metaphor for making love not about the year”.
This 1985 power ballad provided Bryan his first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Two version of the music video were made. The first, released in November 1984, was shot at the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage in Vancouver and was directed by Steve Barron. That video showed the singer standing on stage amid stacks of television sets showing parts of his band members.
