My tribute to Bryan Adams

Those of you who have made an effort to read my profile in the past , must have got a hint that I am a die-hard fan of Adams. This particular fan had suddenly drifted away from her fav crooner since the last six months or so. Those who knew me personally would have been amazed by the fact thatI havent listened to him for that long.
But then this morning whenI was cruising through my music folder, I had a sudden resurgence of emotions when i saw him sitting in that folder demurely, inconspicious yet beckoning me to him.
After half an hour of resplendent ecstacy of his husky, lilting melodies I realized it's a high time I made a post about him.

Somehow Adams has always been there through all the turbulations, the highs-the lows, for the past 6-7 years of my life.
He brought me my first best friend in college to me in the most frustrating situation times of that year. My 2nd friend followed . a common thread binding us.
Then followed this person whom I absolutely love ... the first post I'd read of his was titled " The summer of 69".
Now that I'm done with the reminisings....Lets start off with Adams... I guess the rest of his fans would probably the same things anyway..

The most awesome lyrics , each one of his songs contain those precious few lines which are significantly priceless, atleast to me. I am always amazed by the way he can put some undescribable emotions into those perfect words, more so because me as a person cant remotely write anything close to be called poetic -I guess Iyer knows better with me challenging him once and ultimately ending up making him eat bird curry.
Or better still this will give u a better insight into my poetic abilities if ur new around here which is, ofcourse, expecting for too much .
Anyway comming back to Adams, there is this thing in his voice apart from the melting huskiness, an intense soothing that calms you down , ready to make you face the world again, perks you up when you are down.
Anger, despair, love, passion, desperation, contentment, peace, faith, hope..... everything that life gives you , he has sung it for you and makes you believe the song had been made for you alone.
Then comes his awesome guitar work, just show me another person who can do the "Summer of 69"with the same energy as he can!
His recent album, "Room Service" delivered some of the best songs of his career- Open road,Flying.
These are some of the lines of his songs which touch me everytime I listen to them-

" sometimes words are hard to find
i'm looking for that perfect line
to let you know you're always on my mind
yeah, this is love - n' i've learned enough to know
i'm never lettin' go.....
i may not always know what's right
but i know i want you here tonight
gonna make this moment last for all your life
oh ya this is love - n' it really means so much
i can tell from every touch"-Best of Me

"To really love a woman
Let her hold you - til ya know how she needs to be touched
You've gotta breathe her - really taste her
Til you can feel her in your blood
N' when you can see your unborn children in her eyes
Ya know ya really love a woman"- Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

" If ya wanna stay young - get both feet in it - 18 til I die
A 'lil bit of this - a 'lil bit of that
'Lil bit of everything - get ya right on track
It's not how ya look, it's what ya feel inside"- 18 till I die

" Don't lay our love to rest - Cuz we can stand up to the test
We got everything - and more - than we had planned
More than the rivers that run the land
We've got it all in our hands,
When there's someone that should know -
Then just let your feelin's show
And make it all for one - and all for love"- All for Love

" well it's along way up and we won't come down tonight
well it may be wrong but baby it sure feels right
so baby tonight let's leave the world behind
and spend some time up on cloud number nine"- Cloud no. 9

" Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true"- Everything I do - I do it for you

" i hope to see you smile - but i'm always wrong
it's a different melody but the same old song..
i think i hear your voice - but it's just a dream
it's a brand new movie but the same old scene"- RoomService

" i never thought i'd find someone to move me
someone who could see right thru me
you found your way into my head
where even angels fear to tread"- Where Angels fear to tread

" all i want is a real fast car
wanna go too fast - i wanna go too far
i wanna take a bite of this sweet sweet life
while the gettin's good and the time right
i wanna fill my cup - i wanna drink it up"- I dun wanna live forever

and this one .. cant help the whole song is amazing..
" the biggest lie you ever told - your deepest fear 'bout growin' old
the longest night you ever spent - the angriest letter you ever sent
the boy you swore you'd never leave - the one you kissed on new year's eve
the sweetest dream you had last night - your darkest hour, your hardest fight

i wanna know you - like i know myself
i'm waitin' for you - there ain't no one else
talk to me baby - scream and shout
i want to know you - inside out
i wanna dig down deep - i wanna lose some sleep
i wanna scream and shout - i wanna know you inside out
i wanna take my time - i wanna know your mind
ya know there ain't no doubt - i wanna know you inside

the saddest song you ever heard - the most you said with just one word
the lonliest prayer you ever prayed - truest vow you ever made
what makes you laugh, what makes you cry
what makes you mad, what gets you by
your highest high, your lowest low - these are the things i want to know

i wanna know you - like i know myself
i'm waitin' for you - there ain't no one else
talk to me baby - scream and shout
i want to know you - inside out

i wanna know your soul - i wanna lose control
c'mon n'let it out - i wanna know you inside out
ya gotta dig down deep - i wanna lose some sleep
i wanna scream and shout - i wanna know you inside out
tell me everything..." - Inside out

I have a memory accompanying every song Ive heard him singing....An endless list...
