Bryan Adams – Summer Of ’69

Summer Of ’69 (l’estate del ’69) è una canzone rock / pop rock di Bryan Adams (famoso cantante rock canadese).

Pubblicata nel 1985, ebbe un grande successo negli USA e negli anni divenne una canzone estremamente popolare in tutto il resto del mondo.

In base a quanto dichiarato da Bryan Adamns (e in modo evidente anche dai testi) si tratta una canzone sui temi dell’adolescenza, la “lunga estate” e le prime esperienza con l’amore e con il sesso (Bryan a dichiarato che “69” era in realtà un riferimento alla posizione sessuale e non all’anno. Il co-scrittore della canzone, Jim Vallance, afferma invece che è un derivato dall’influenza della canzone “Running on empty” di Jackson Browne che fa riferimenti al e1965 e al 1969, nonchè il film “quell’estate del ’42).

Taylor Swift & Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69

Nel 2018, durante il suo “reputation tour” Taylor Swift ha eseguito la canzone assieme a Bryan Adams.

Non si tratta della prima performance di Taylor Swift con questo pezzo, che aveva già cantato in precedenza nel 2011

Bryan Adams – Summer of ’69, testo e parole

Testo inglese – originale

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it ’til my fingers bled
Was the summer of ’69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
I should’ve known we’d never get far

Oh, when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I’d always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in complainin’
When you’ve got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that’s when I met you, yeah

Standin’ on your mama’s porch
You told me that you’d wait forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah
Back in the summer of ’69, oh

Man we were killin’ time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin’ can last forever, forever, no! Yeah!

And now the times are changin’
Look at everything that’s come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Standin’ on your mama’s porch
You told me that it’d last forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah Back in the summer of ’69, oh
It was the summer of ’69, oh, yeah
Me and my baby in ’69, oh
It was the summer, the summer, the summer of ’69, yeah
