A little something about Bryan Adams
Canada had its share of pop success stories in the 1980s, though for most – Martha and the Muffins, Men Without Hats, etc. – that success was pretty short lived. Bryan Adams meanwhile has managed to stay on top of things since his 1983 album Cuts Like A Knife brought him to the attention of listeners outside of Canada. In 1984 Adams was introduced to the top of the pop charts, with a #1 album – Reckless – and a run of top ten hits. With hits “Heaven,” “Summer of ’69” and “Run To You,” Adams and his rock ballads owned top 40 radio in the US for a few months… whether that is good thing or not I’ll leave up to you to decide. Reckless became the top selling album ever released by a Canadian act, and earned him a grammy nomination and a list of awards at home. For the ’90s, Bryan Adams softened his sound his sound a touch, setting aside the “rock” part of his former sound and settling with ballads. The change yielded great success in 1991 with “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” a track from Kevin Costner’s fluffy Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves film. Again, he topped charts at home and elsewhere and won awards. And since contributing to soundtrack had paid off so well he did it again… and again. He had a hit from the fluffy 1993 Three Musketeers film, and topped the US charts with “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?” from the slightly-less-fluffy film Don Juan Demarco. Adams remains hard at work, having released his tenth solo album last year.
