In his home country Bryan Adams is considered a wise and exotic old rock musician. There is an aspect of my lyric course where each student has to eventually share a song that changed their life. Student today told us his choice was Bryan Adam’s Summer of ’69. So odd that he is from the other side of the ocean and this is his choice for cathartic song experience. After the class ends he and a couple others stuck around and I asked if he knew the writer was someone else named Jim Vallance who probably was 18 or 19 in the summer of 1969, whereas Bryan Adams maybe was seven. He is amazed I would know such incredible information. I guess that is life, enjoy the comedy of reality.
