On the 21st of each month, I share my current favourite song. It can be an old song or a new song, and I choose to share it to give inspiration to anyone who is looking for some new music, and enjoys the kind of music that I share here at the blog.
This months choice is one of the most popular songs of the 90’s (Everything I Do) I Do it for You by the one and only Bryan Adams. This song has always been one of my favourties and ever since I watched the film it featured in (Robin Hood Prince of Thieves), I had always wanted to learn to play it on the piano (something that I managed to achieve this year!). The song is a perfect love song, with heart touching vocals, the perfect blend of soft rock, and a noteworthy key change that elevates the song to a higher level and lyrically makes its strongest points, before closing with its diminuendo.
The ballad is famous for spending 16 weeks at number one in the UK charts and for simply refusing to budge, from the top spot. I have always been a fan of Bryan and I feel lucky that I got to see him perform live at Wembley during his 18 ’til I Die tour in the 90’s. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert!
While this maybe the official music video for the song (that I am sharing below), the actual official chart video included scenes of the movie as well as Bryan performing the song with his band in a forest. This particular music video still plays on music channels, but sadly can’t be found at YouTube.
I am also including my piano solo of the song below. I would love to hear your thoughts on my piano solo and if this particular song features in your favourites list too!
