This may be walking down memory lane as he has been on the music scene for as long as I can remember. Beginning with the most popular song (Everything I do) I do it for you from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves starring Kevin Costner. This song spent a record-breaking seventeen weeks at number one on UK Singles Chart.
And then comes the movie in the 90s, The Mirror Has Two Faces starring Barbara Streisand and Jeff Bridges. I finally found Someone is the soundtrack for that movie, a duet between Streisand and Adams. A great movie self-directed by Barbara Streisand which was nominated for an Oscar. The song gave Streisand a first significant hit in a decade!
Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman was my most favorite of all his songs. Written in 1995 it hits no. 1 in the U.S. for 5 weeks but I’ve somewhat missed it then. Strange! I only got to hear it performed by Chris Daughtry at the American Idol in 2006, a decade later! I fell in love with the song sung by Chris and yes, he’s my very own American Idol! THE Idol. I love his rendition of the song. Just awesome!
Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman is an “amazing song, lyrically & musically”, “it has all the elements of a great love song” & Chris Daughtry perfected it as we saw his performance on American Idol. What an amazing performance!!!

Bryan Adams negotiated the shifting tides of the '80s so well that it never seemed as if he were changing to fit the times.

All of this was a prelude to Reckless, the 1984 album that turned him into an international superstar, selling by the truckloads in North America, Europe, and Asia thanks to the hits "Run to You," "Heaven," and "Summer of '69." From that point on, Adams was the most unassuming of rock stars, riding high on the charts and selling out arenas, even breaking Billboard records with his power ballad "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)," but never quite dominating the public imagination (or earning the critical respect) as such peers as Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp. Nevertheless, Adams remained a formidable presence on the American charts into the mid-'90s, and while the popularity of his new records started to slip after that, he retained his audience in Canada and the U.K. and his '80s hits remained radio staples as he began a career as a photographer.
The son of an English diplomat, Bryan Adams was born in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, in 1959 and spent much of his childhood traveling Europe. His family set down roots in North Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1973, around which time he began seriously...
