Everyone has them, the songs we’re not meant to like, the songs that Kurt Cobain, Sid Vicious et al died so that we wouldn’t have to listen to.
And quite often they may be made by people whose work we cannot otherwise stand.
This track is a case in point. I am very happy never to have to hear ‘Everything I do, I Do It For You’ by Bryan Adams ever again.
So why is it, that this track, which I should despise beyond all measure, almost as muchas anything by his compatriots Celine Dion and Nickleback * involuntary shudder* is great?
