Bryan Adams is a Canadian singer-songwriter who started his musical career at the age of 15 with the group "Sweeney Todd". Group with which he will record the album "If wishes were horses".
In 1978, he met Jim Vallance, composer by trade and who allowed him to produce his first album. The album was released in 1980 and it was a success.
The second album "You want it you go it", released in 1981 and contains the title "Lonely nights" which quickly became a radio hit.
It was in 1983 that everything accelerated when the album "Cuts like a knife" came out which contained the mega hit "Straight from the heart", as well as two other minor hits such as "Cuts like a knife" and " This time ”.
The next album, called "Reckless", was released in 1984 and became a real hit, especially in the USA. There are the top hits "Somebody", "It’s only love", "Run to you" and "Summer of 69". To which we will add the mega hit “Heaven” which will remain the biggest success of this album.
After three years of successive world tours, the album "Into the fire" was released in 1987, from which the flagship singles "Heat of the night" and "Hearts on fire" would be extracted.
The final consecration came four years later in 1991 with the release of the album "Waking up the neighbors", which was a huge hit in continental Europe and Australia. Album containing the intergalactic hit "(Everything I do) I do it for you". Single made oh so famous by the soundtrack of the film "Robin Hood, Prince of thieves" with Kevin Costner.
Other albums will be released thereafter but without having the same success as the previous ones, which will not prevent Bryan Adams from remaining in the musical history of the 80s as the most gifted Canadian singer and having known the greatest number of hits during this decade.

1978 ... the totally surrealist beginnings ! Yes, yes, it is the same who is at the origin of this title and who a few years later will become one of the greatest rock singers of the end of the 20th century ...
1980 ... for a first title sung by the artist, the least we can say is that it is particularly successful. Very promising !
1980 ... a 1980 year of break-in and which shows above all an obvious potential. All that remains is to unroll and above all ramp up !
1981 ... a first top hit to launch a career which will prove to be one of the most brilliant of the 80s, but also of the 90s ...
1981 ... the "Adams" style is set up slowly but surely. What is certain is that will be rock, very rock ...
1983 ... a very versatile artist, he will prove himself as good in the very strong as in the much more Intimist side. The proof with this pretty ballad which allows him to obtain his first major hit
1983 ... sound quality that increases piece by piece. The hits begin to follow one another and we imagine that the best is yet to come ...
1983 ... an uninterrupted series of hits in 1983, a year that turned out to be truly exceptional for him. We couldn't dream of a better launching pad ...
1983 ... he signs here a new ballad of very large caliber, all on a background of Celtic inspiration. MA-GIC !
1984 ... but it is THIS title that will change everything and really reveal him in the eyes of the general public. His first big planetary hit. HU-GE !
1985 ... 1983 was an exceptional year...1985 will be even stronger. Yes, if, it is possible with the key an avalanche of very large caliber titles. Amazing !
1985 ... after the top hits, it's time for MEGA hits. We start with an Ultimate Slow where the gentle power of the artist does wonders
1985 ... the rock side takes over ... Hunt the natural it gallops. A title that hits the target again : new mega hit !
1985 ... it's rock, rock and rock. But once again a title with a certain inspiration and which works perfectly
1985 ... when 2 stars of the moment meet, what happens...? Obviously, something phew...! The proof with this title completely boosted !
1985 ... a year 1985 which ends in apotheosis with this special Christmas song. Even in this very specific register, he can do amazing things !
1987 ... after a white year 1986, back to basics in this new year : it must knock !
1987 ... in the same vein. As long as it works, there's no reason to change your style. But it is not necessarily this strong style that brings him the most, it's clear ...
1987 ... the tempo slows down again. Phew, that feels good ... A little sweetness cannot hurt ... quite the contrary
1991 ... new cut of several years. It becomes a habit ... And which allows him a literally shattering return with this WONDER. One of the most beautiful ballads of the decade, if not the last 30 years. An original soundtrack for a now cult film, namely "Robin Hood, prince of thieves" with Kevin Costner. MO-NU-MENT !
1991 ... a new decade that is taking off again ! New top mega hit, just to keep the pressure on ...
1991 ... a third mega hit to end an incredible new year for the artist. There are years with nothing and years with a multitude of huge titles. It's like that !
1992 ... change of vintage and restart on the wheel caps. An inspiration in perpetual boiling and constantly renewed !
1992 ... as much the end of the 1980s was laborious, as the beginning of the 90s is at least breathtaking. He literally walks on water, there is no other word !
1992 ... and we set out again in the Intimist. He now reaches a level of excellence in this area which makes him one of the best in the world ...
1993 ... his 2nd biggest planetary hit. Once again on a ballad of emotional wealth of very very large caliber. Like what, we can be a 'rocker' and have feelings ...
1993 ... look at this mind-blowing starry skewer. The 'Dream Team', there are no other possible qualifiers. And the result is necessarily up to par !
1995 ... new soundtrack this time for the film "Don Juan DeMarco" with Johnny Depp. And once again, it's the big success of the year !
1996 ... one would have thought that after an 80s decade at the top, the 90s would be one of decline. What a denial. And it's even quite the opposite !
1996 ... the alternation continues inexorably. One time he plays it heavy rock, one time he plays it ballad 'take out the handkerchiefs'. And it works...inexorably !
1996 ... a nice ballad in the stars which transports us into worlds of softness and finesse. What more !
1996 ... another exceptional year with a multitude of hits and above all this dream duo which once again brings together 2 huge stars for a sumptuous result
1996 ... a last hit to end the year in the best possible way. Well, this time, we put away the handkerchiefs and we take out the guitars. It couldn't go on like this indefinitely, that's for sure !
1997 ... and the years go by and nothing changes ... Always at the top, always as effective. A real war machine !
1998 ... a decade in the 90s that saw him garner even more mega hits than the 80s. This is extremely rare for an artist who started his career at the end of the 70s !
1998 ... 20 years after its beginnings, still there the guy ! It's not beautiful ! And surely not there by chance, that's for sure !
1998 ... new spicy duo this time with one of the Spice Girls, just that. Good pick because she is surely the most rock of the 5. The result is therefore up to par !
1999 ... impossible to stop it ... Another decade which ends in beauty by starting with a new planetary hit of big caliber
1999 ... this time, it is indeed the end ... of the decade for titles. But this is not the end of the adventure for the artist, far from it ...
2000 ... the proof, he is back a year later in the company of the young generation. An association to say the least unexpected but anyway successful given the level of success achieved in the Charts ...
2000 ... the beginning of the 2000 decade which confirms that the artist is still in the race with a level of success still sufficient to keep him in the leading pack without too much difficulty. Hope it lasts ...
2002 ... a small air hole in 2001 and here he is again in brilliant shape in 2002. He will add here a new prestigious star to a prize list which already has quite a lot of it. Unfortunately it may well be the last ...
2004 ... another leap forward until the year 2004, it is definitely one in two years now. Afterwards, if it's the better to come back each time, why not ...
2004 ... for the moment all is well in the Adams galaxy and the artist continues to unroll quietly. It will still be necessary to watch the competition a little so as not to be left behind ...
2005 ... what we feared is happening, that is to say that the artist did not pay attention to the latest musical developments of the moment and the competition is seriously starting to take the lead...
2005 ... the dropout in the Charts will be violent from this year 2005. A dropout to say the least unexpected and that the singer will be unable to stop in the years to come ...
2005 ... the production of titles is to say the least bloated in this year 2005 but it is rather the level of inspiration which is not enough any more to keep him at the head of the race. Attention danger...
2008 ... new air hole which will last 3 years this time, it becomes a mania. Three years of break which will still benefit him since he will succeed in returning to the front of the stage with this new title. The worst is avoided ...
2008 ... the relapse will be severe just behind. The artist is seriously starting to stall compared to the competition and above all seems to have reached his limits ...
2009 ... it is above all that he cannot adapt to the latest musical trends of the moment and he pays a high price for it. He remains braced on its fundamentals of previous decades and this inevitably marginalizes him more and more ...
2010 ... the adventure continues in this new decade of 2010 but the delay taken on the competition is now impossible to fill. Hard law of the trade ...
2010 ... we find him in charming company at the Olympic Games in Vancouver where he provides the song for the opening ceremony with Nelly Furtado. A nice title but which unfortunately will not change the situation...
2011 ... come on, he tries the good old Christmas title to see if it could not put him back on its feet. There will be no miracle with this title either ...
2012 ... he finally decides to stick to the latest musical trends of the moment. But it is already too late and the younger generation will pay little attention to it ...
2013 ... nothing beats a good old duo with a buddy to try to save the furniture. And on this one, it will work pretty well. Thanks who, thanks Michael !
2014 ... the adventure continues at all costs and the singer himself in any case continues to believe in it. Rightly or wrongly, that's something else ...
2015 ... the level of success has been at the bottom of the daisies for several years but it still manages to land small hits one shot in Canada, one shot in the United States. It's already that...
2015 ... despite an overall minimalist level of success, he seems to continue to take obvious pleasure in this story. Isn't that the main thing ...
2015 ... a BIG year 2015 with a plethora of titles. Quality is always the order of the day but not enough to hope for a comeback at the head of the race, it is clear ...
2016 ... the year 2016 will not really look like the year 2015. Only one title on the clock this year and which will also go under the radar. Times are hard...
2017 ... business picks up at a minimum the following year with this title of more than certain quality. You should know that with him nothing is ever finished. Spread the word...
2019 ... during this decade his only stalemate on the year side will take place during the year 2018. We find him in this very last year of the decade 2010 in a firm that we will qualify as relative. Relative but sufficient to keep him afloat a minimum ...
2021 ... and here he is in this decade of 2020, who would have believed it ? He is entering his 6th decade of career here, a real feat no matter what, even if the level of success achieved now has nothing to do with his 'great' years !
2021 ... and once again he is far from being ridiculous ! He continues his adventure in his own way and as he sees fit and whoever he wants. To be continued ...
