That is indeed funny!

I thought it was his second album that he wanted to do that for after the disappointing sales of his first album.

I blame the 900 dance remixes that came afterwards.

I have nothing positive to say about Bryan Adams, I'm afraid.

Although I did have the 45 for "Heaven" back in the day. I don't know what I was thinking. I guess I used to like big 80s ballads.

Wow! Nobody likes Cuts Like A Knife, Run To You, Summer of 69 or Can't Stop...? at least for nostalgia sake? Where is Phanan?!!

Summer of 69 is okay. I used to really like it, now I just think it's okay. His stuff hasn't held up for me over time.

I used to have the sheet music for Everything I Do (I Do It For You) - I think any halfway decent piano player back in the day bought that one.

! It drove a lot of people batshit insane. I like it for the spanish flavor/melody and some of the lyrics like "when you can see your unborn children in her eyes, you know you really loved a woman".

I think that pretty much sums it up for me, too.

That line is one of the reasons it drives me batshit insane. I hope no one ever looks into my eyes and sees imaginary fetuses. They will be sorely disappointed.

I just thought of another Bryan Adams song I really liked, but as it has not been mentioned in the thread yet, I'm too embarrassed to say what it is.

I guess I kind of like the live version of I'm Ready, the one with the string section.

lmao! Obviously it was supposed to convey something along the lines of seeing innocence in her eyes or whatever, that's my guess. I seriously doubt Bryan Adams wants to see imaginary fetuses in his woman's eyes.
