Breaking Benjamin

Genre: heavy rock/radio metal

Discovered: Co-worker mentioned she liked them before their breakout hit "So Cold", but I didn't get into their music until that song.

Bryan Adams

Genre: rock and roll

Discovered: MTV

Other: Adams: "I think [‘Summer of ’69’ is] timeless because it’s about making love in the summertime. There is a slight misconception it’s about a year, but it’s not. ‘69’ has nothing to do about a year, it has to do with a sexual position…At the end of the song, the lyric says that it’s me and my baby in a 69. You’d have to be pretty thick in the ears if you couldn’t get that lyric."

HIGH FIVE:

1. Summer Of '69
2. This Time
3. Cuts Like A Knife
4. One Night Love Affair
5. There Will Never Be Another Tonight

I remember him saying on MTV back in the day it was about a fictitious year that represents the freedom and bla bla bla whatever. I’m sure the record label made him say that to keep the prudes from complaining about him being a smut peddler.

I always liked this song:

Heat of the Night" is a song written by Canadian rock musician Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance and performed by Adams. The song became the most successful song from Adams's album Into the Fire in 1987. It was released as the first single from Into the Fireand reached number 6 on the U.S. BillboardHot 100 and number 2 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
