Bryan Adams Soundtrack Appreciation Day

Bryan Adams: King of the Movie Theme Smash Hit.

Rivaled only by the Queen of Pop Soundtrack Hits, fellow canuck, Celine Dion.

"Heaven" from A Night in Heaven. A gay song from a gayer movie. As it is lacking in film footage, I think this video is probably from the Reckless album release a couple years later.

"(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The golden standard of Theme Songs. Remember how they played the video right after the end of the movie? Alan Rickman was clutch city in this.

"All For Love" from The Three Musketeers. Performed by A.S.S. - Adams, Stewart, and Sting. Sadly, the video fails to incorporate film footage of Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherland, and instead opts for the standard "impromptu circle jerk" theme.

"Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?" from Don Juan DeMarco. I remember that this song made me want to have babies when it came out. I learned how to play it on guitar in the hopes of someday being able to woo a woman with it. No such luck, though, and I was forced to stick to my strict regimen of chronic masturbation. Depp's in the video.

And just for shits:

It cuts like a knife, but it feels so fucking right. So much goodness.

I'm gonna go drink one for ol' B.A. now.

Step 1: Affect Bryan Adams' vocal timbre with a combination of vocal fry and buggery.
Step 2: Master the the endless distorted guitar trill and whammy bar combination.
Step 3: Perform Cuts Like a Knife in a way Ted Leo would be jealous of.
Step 4: Recruit Army of Skanks to march on Vince.
