    Default Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" Canada's favourite driving song

    Adams' Summer of '69 tops poll as favourite driving song

    Canadian Press

    Published: Tuesday, August 08, 2006

    MONTREAL -- A new poll suggests Bryan Adams' Summer of '69 is top of the pops when it comes to Canada's favourite driving song.

    The Decima Research survey of 1,000 Canadians has the song beating out Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and Steppenwolf's classic Born to be Wild.

    Summer of '69, which came out in the mid-1980s, topped the list for anglophones and francophones, as well as for men and women.

    The respondents were given a list of seven songs chosen by a panel of music journalists.
    The poll was conducted July 12-19 and is considered accurate within 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

    I like this song but the poll is kinda crappy cuz they only surveyed 1000 ppl, I'm sure they could've done better than that...

    I love this song! It gives me that nostalgic feeling whenever it comes on the radio.

    Why I just have to crank up the volume, and sing my heart out.
    Rock the fuck on!

    It's nostalgic for me, too, as I had a crush on my Canadian English teacher when I was like 15 and he taught me this song (the lyrics).

    Beats that horrible Tom Cochrane song "life is a highway"

    I want him to die.

    Yes he's from Vancouver. My sister took a pic of his studios' building for me when she travelled there
    Bryan Adams is the reason I really started to learn English in the first place, the program at school was not so good but I wanted so bad to know the lyrics of his songs so I could sing along.
    I have all his albums and then some more (vinyle bootlegs!). Love him, love his broken voice, love his music (especially until the early 90s), love the causes he gives his time to! He's the only "celeb" I ever got a picture of in my room as a teenager.

    Go Bryan!

    I was responding to Grimm by the way if Tom Cochrane was a Canadian. I knew Bryan was from Vancouver, I live here!

    He's the funny-looking midget-y dude that sings the song Grimm mentioned. To me he looks like a country music singer...
