Bryan Adams – Run To You (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th January 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

R E Q U E S T

“Run to You” is a rock song written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance for Adams’ fourth studio album, Reckless. It was the first single released from the album and is still one of Adams’s most recognizable and popular songs. The song topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song has appeared on all of Adams’ compilation albums. The single was certified Gold in Canada in 1985.

“Run to You” was released in October 1984 and became one of the most successful songs from Reckless on the American rock charts and arguably one of Adams most recognizable and popular songs. “Run to You” was released worldwide on October 18, 1984. The song reached the top ten on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and was Adams first number one hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and number six on the Billboard Hot 100. “Run to You” reached the top twenty on the Canadian singles chart and remained there for seven weeks. “Run to You” reached the highest Canadian chart positions Adams had attained at the time of release and became his second top twenty single in Canada. “Run to You” was released the following month in Ireland and peaked at number 8 and reached number eleven on the UK Singles Chart. It was his second single to chart in Europe.

Stewart Mason from Allmusic said “Run to You” was the first of the album’s six Top 30 hits, and in retrospect, “one of the weakest of the lot. Although the song has a thundering chorus, the kind that sounds truly excellent blasting through FM speakers, there is quite literally not much else to the song: of the song’s nearly four-minute length, over half of the song is devoted to repeats of the chorus and an unimaginative instrumental breakdown that leads into a seemingly endless vamp on the chorus to fade.” The long instrumental is indicative of the theme of the music video where the protagonist is serenading his guitar as the object of his affection.

The music video was shot in London, England and later Los Angeles.[9] Directed by Steve Barron, it was nominated for the 1985 MTV Video Music Awards in five different categories: Best Direction, Best Special Effects, Best Art Direction, Best Editing and Best Cinematography. While the song didn’t win any of the awards, it has received more MTV Video Music Award nominations than any other of Adams’ songs. The English actress Lysette Anthony appears in the video.

Bryan Adams – Diana/The Bryan Adamix (Canada 12″ EP)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th October 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

R E Q U E S T

“Diana” is a song performed by Bryan Adams. Written by Adams and Jim Vallance, the track appears as the B-side to “Heaven” and is one of the most prominent of Bryan Adams’ non-album songs.

The song was written in March 1984 in Vancouver, Canada. It was intended as a light, comedic song about the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer. The song was not included on Adams’ Reckless album because Adams was worried about offending the royal couple. Nevertheless, the song was later released as a b-side on the single, “Heaven”.

The lyrics of the song admire Diana, a celebrity who the narrator first saw in a magazine, then later on TV. The narrator professes his love for Diana, and indicates that her current husband (never mentioned by name) is not good enough for her. The narrator begs Diana to leave her husband, indicating that she wouldn’t have to be part of the “social scene” if she were with him.

Though the song is assumed to be about Diana and Prince Charles, the song never explicitly identifies the characters as such. Furthermore, is it never mentioned what Diana does (other than being a well-known celebrity), nor is Charles mentioned by name or title. A royal connection is made, though, in that Diana is identified by the narrator as “the queen of all my dreams”.

According to co-writer Jim Vallance, when the British press obtained a copy of the record, they “attempted to fabricate a scandal” by saying that Adams had inappropriate feelings for Diana and had insulted Prince Charles

Adams often performed the song during his live concerts up until the day of Diana’s death after which he retired the song permanently

A&M Records released the song in 1985 as 12″ EP in Canada. The EP contains Adams hit “Summer Of ’69″ and a megamix titled “The Bryan Adamix” which was remixed by Sanny X.

Bryan Adams – Let Me Take You Dancing (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 6th December 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

Re-Rip Remastered

I originally posted this rare 12″ a while back, but the links eventually went dead. Since then I have gotten many emails asking to re-post it. So I thought I would do better than that and just re-rip it using my new needle. Also, I am offer it in 24bit lossless for the first time. Enjoy!
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

“Let Me Take You Dancing” is a song recorded by Bryan Adams. It was written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance and was later remixed by John Luongo. It is notable for being Adams’ first solo single and his first ever release as a solo artist when he was 18.

The record is a disco track due to the remix. It was one of the first songs that Adams and Vallance wrote together and was based on a rag-time piano riff that Vallance had written. The writing took place during February 1978 and the song was recorded at Pinewood Studios by Geoff Turner The song was originally released as a pop song, but was taken by his record company and remixed.

Although the single experienced some minor radio success, respected remixer John Luongo was recruited to remix the song to make it sound like a proper disco track ready for release in the USA. The song went to #22 on the U.S’ Billboard Hot Dance/Disco Chart and also peaked at #18 on the Canadian Singles Chart.

For the remix to be a success, Luongo deemed it necessary to increase the tempo of the song. Unfortunately due to the lack of time compression technology at that time, it was impossible to increase the tempo of the song without increasing the pitch of Adams’ vocals. Adams was disappointed with the speeded-up sound.

Co-writer Jim Vallance stated that “I don’t doubt the single’s success contributed to Bryan eventually being signed directly to the label [A&M Records]“. However, to this day Adams has distanced himself from the single and has only performed it live on a handful of occasions. This is entirely because when Luongo remixed the record, he failed to ask Adams to re-sing the song. The result was the record sounds nothing like Adams’s voice due to how much the recording was sped up.
