There are some big hits from this era that I haven’t heard before- but this one was one that was hard to avoid. I never have watched the Robin Hood movie- but this song seemed to be everywhere in 1991. The 2nd of 4 #1’s by Bryan Adams. He’s one of those artists that while I am not a fan of his- I don’t dislike him- He’s kind of there. I did love the ‘Summer of ’69’. My friend Helmet calls Johnny Mellencamp- Bruce Springsteen Lite- and Bryan Adams- John Mellencamp Lite.

  1. I think Bryan Adams has some good songs, especially on his earlier records.

    I used to listen to the “Reckless” album all the time when it came out in ’84. While I’m no longer as fond of it, I still dig “Summer of 69”, “Run to You” and “It’s Only Love,” the duet with Tina Turner.

    On the other hand, I feel “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” was completely over-exposed, and I’ve grown a bit tired of it.

  2. Dude! You seriously need to see that Robin Hood movie. It is a scream. Alan Rickman is a scene stealer as the Sheriff of Nottingham. And, Morgan Freeman as a Muslim warrior is really cool.

    Sheriff: “Robin! I’m going cut your heart out with a spoon!”

    Guy of Gisborne (Michael Wincott): “Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?”
    Sheriff (growling): “Because it’s dull, you twit. It’ll hurt more.”

    Then, there is the drunken Friar Tuck (Michael McShane).

    Classic movie.
