Bryan Adams strikes a chord with a particular generation of people who were particularly enticed by his raspy voice and timeless music. Below we list some of the legend’s greatest songs ever!
HAVE YOU EVER REALLY LOVED A WOMAN?
An excellent rendition on love and tender romance, Adams’ vocals and the slow tempo makes this song any beloved’s delight.
RUN TO YOU
A definite breakaway from his reflective songs on love, Adams’ Run To You is an edgier take on romance. Some moody drums and guitar lends that dark tone to the music that uphelds the prevailing theme of infidelity.
THIS SIDE OF PARADISE
This is one song that exhibits Adams in a different light. The longings and loss that accompanies the passing away of a loved one finds expression in this hauntingly remorseful song.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME
The ballad celebrating his longing for his love, asking for her forgiveness, counts as one of Adams’ most powerful songs ever.
(EVERYTHING I DO) I DO IT FOR YOU
One of the greatest love songs of all time, Everything I Do scored a Grammy Award for Best Song written specifically for A Motion Picture or Television and is essentially Adams’ one of the most soulful compositions.
SUMMER OF ’69
A timeless classic on love and relationships, Summer of ’69 remains Bryan Adams’ most popular song ever.
THE ONLY THING THAT LOOKS GOOD ON ME IS YOU
Bryan’s obsession with his lady reaches raunchy heights in this steamy number that was a contrast of sorts. Because it projeced the singer as somewhat different from his conventional typecast image of a romantic devotee.
ALL FOR LOVE
The somewhat toned down melody features in the movie The Three Muskeeters and was a runaway hit by Adams alongside Rod Stewart and Sting.
Adam’s celebration of his love is evident in this number from the romantic movie A Night in Heaven, that combines soulful lyrics with a stunning melody to make you drift away to that ‘heaven of love’ in your life.
WHEN YOU ARE GONE
Adams’ longing for his love when she’s gone shapes up the composition of this song as well as its title, that he performed along with Spice Girl Mel B.
