Me too - the piano version, not the dance remixes

As for Bryan Adams, I do like "Everything I Do...", even if it is a cheesy love song

Another good thing about Bryan Adams is that he's Canadian.

Favorite Bryan Adams songs:

It's Only Love
One Night Love Affair
Somebody
Run To You
Summer of 69
Cuts Like A Knife
This Time (great song!)

VP, that song I'm Ready was really nice! I hadn't heard it before. At the end of that clip, the song that starts playing... Back To You, I've always liked that song too. I posted it in the first post.

Yeah, it's a really great version, isn't it? Very pretty and haunting. And maybe someone with better knowledge than me can confirm, but is that a tin whistle?

Eta - I've watched this a couple of times since I posted it, now. I'd forgotten how much I like it.

You rang?

Reckless is a good album, although Heaven is embarrassing to hear now.

A couple of other early hits are good.

Other than that, haven't paid attention to him in years.

Aw man... it's a love song. I like it for what it is. I agree that it's not great songwriting or anything. But we don't see too many innocent love songs like these anymore. I like a few of the lyrics...

Oh - once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you're feeling down

Psst, Zoots? Elton John's The One.

You listed that as one you like by him in another thread, right?

We should have love song survivor. lol

The other piece of trivia I like about those two is that, apart from having almost the same name, they also share their birthday (November 5). They weren't born in the same year though.

This is true, I saw it myself when he played a club in Melbourne in about 2000. He really chucked a fruity, asked for the bloke to identify himself and for security to throw him out. The rest of us laughed, as you do

Okay, yeah, that would have been about when I heard about it, too! The offender got tossed in my version as well.

God, who enters the music industry with a name that's one letter off another internationally known performer, and then doesn't expect some allusions to him having practically the same name as the other performer? I remember thinking at the time "this guy must be a giant douche." Little did I know... lol

OMG we should!! I really love Elton John's The One. I don't know... more than the lyrics, I appreciate the music/melody first, when it comes to anything. Maybe that's why sometimes the sappy lyrics don't bother me. I'm probably making a total fool of myself by admitting to liking these love songs. But eh.. it's not like I care anyway. Otherwise I won't be making these threads.

Oh btw MrPryck, after making the Phil Collins thread I went and looked at your Top 100 albums list. No Jacket Required and... wasn't Reckless in there too? And GNR Illusion as well... I like your music taste!
