BRYAN ADAMS – Summer Of 69

Posted: November 1st, 2004, by Chris S

This is the worst song ever recorded. Even worse than “Another Day In Paradise” by Phil Collins. In my temp job I listen to Classic Gold all day and they play this fucking shitrag every single day. Sometimes twice.

When the gravel-throated Canadian sings “I got my first real six string” I have taken to running at high speed into the toilets to conceal my utter embarassment on his behalf. Yesterday I returned a little early and heard the bit about the boys from the band trying “real hard” and I involuntarily began trying to remove my head with a plastic sandwich knife.

I hate this song more than war and if I ever met Bryan Adams I would kick his fucking arse for writing it.

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.
