It wasn't a chance hearing to some random music channel that got me hooked to this music sensation.I wasn't even thought about when the teenagers of another era were grooving to the summer of 69.I was in the 4th grade,that was the year 2001 when my father made me listen to this Canadian rockstar.It was the time of the Backstreet boys,Westlife and Peter Andre.It was my father who slowly exposed me to the Beatles,Michael Jackson,George Michael and subsequently Bryan Adams.He got me this CD of Bryan Adams Unplugged and I was so hooked.
There's this quality in his voice.Its raw,sort of inperfect which got me totally floored.And since then,he has been one of my most favourite artists of all time.My taste in music has changed.I don't listen to the Backstreet boys or Brtiney Spears anymore.I'm into the Poets of the Fall.But nothing has changed the love I feel for Bryan Adams' music.Its got an old school feel to it.With songs like the Summer of 69,Back to you,When you love someone,I'm ready,All for love,Straight from the heart,This time,One night love affair,which were the notable ones,left me enthralled.

And baby,you're all I want
When you're lyin' here in my arms
I'm finding it hard to believe
We're in heaven...
And love is all I need
And I'm finally there in your heart
It isn't too hard to see
We're in heaven

When he crooned thus in Heaven,its hard not to fall in love with this man's voice.
When he goes all romantic in..

I swear to you
I will always be there for you
there's nothing I won't do..

If you're a girl,and if you have a guy singing this to you..

To really love a woman
To understand her
You gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought
See every dream
And give her wings when she wants to fly
And when you find yourself
Lying helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman

Its hard to not be floored.
But as much as you love Bryan Adams for his soft rock,its hard not to love him for his off-the-edge songs.The most famous one being 18 till I die..

I wanna be young the rest of my life
never say no - try anything twice
til the angels come and ask me to fly
I'm gonna be 18 til I die

The most amazing quailty about a Bryan Adams song is,how refreshing each song is from the other.
And the most endearing quality about Bryan Adams,the celebrity is,that apart from making amazing music,he's a brilliant song-writer,he's impressive with the guitars.
And a fact that many don't know,he's an acclaimed photgrapher,and a dedicated philanthropist,working for many a cause.
If you love music,you should be giving Bryan Adams a hear.
Isn't it a mere coincidence that the post coincides with Bryan Adams announcing that he will be touring India in February.The last time he had come,and I couldn't make it coz I had no tickets,and exams on my head,I had promised myself that there's no way,I'm letting him go the next time he comes.And I will stick to my promise this time around.
