Glass Tiger – Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone) (Germany 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” is a song by Canadian rock band Glass Tiger. It was released in January 1986 as the lead from their debut album, The Thin Red Line. The song reached number-one in Canada and number 2 in the United States. The song features backing vocals by rock singer Bryan Adams.

In 1985, Glass Tiger chose Jim Vallance to produce the band’s debut album. At the time, Vallance was primarily known as a songwriter, having written most frequently (and successfully) with Bryan Adams. He also had some previous production experience, having produced one album apiece by Adams, Doug and the Slugs and CANO in the early 1980s. The band’s lead vocalist Alan Frew recalled: “It worked out great because we were all at the same stage of development. He didn’t change the sound of the band at all. He let us experiment but wasn’t afraid to get heavy-handed when he had to.” Vallance composed “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” with the band, while Adams provided backing vocals. Frew – “On the very first day that we met Jim Vallance, he picked us up at the airport and to break the ice asked us what we were listening to. One was Tears For Fears. We went to his house and drank tea and listened to some tunes. ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’ came on and we really liked the shuffle beat. So we went into the studio and based on this shuffle beat, we wrote ‘Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)’. First day, first song.”

“Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” topped the Canadian Singles Chart in March 1986, and spent two weeks at number 1. The single was certified platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association in July. The song entered the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in July, peaked at number 2 in October – kept from number 1 by Janet Jackson’s “When I Think of You” – and spent 24 weeks on the chart. It reached number 1 on the Singles Sales chart and number 6 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart. The song also peaked at number 17 on the Mainstream Rock chart, number 30 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and number 34 on the Billboard Year-End singles chart of 1986. The single reached the top 15 in Australia, number 27 in New Zealand, number 29 in the United Kingdom, and number 40 in the Netherlands.

Frew credited the song’s chart performance to “solid record company involvement” and the band’s international appeal. “We aren’t rewriting musical history by any means,” he added. “But our melody lines are strong and mature enough to appeal to the English-speaking world.” The song won the 1986 Juno Award for Single of the Year, and was named top Canadian single in the Rock Express magazine readers’ poll awards in 1987. In 1996, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada honored the song for airing more than 100,000 times on Canadian radio.

The “Death Mix” did not appear on CD the re-issue of the bands debut album.

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.
