Musical Friday: Everything I Do

Dear friends,

As this week was a week dedicated to posts about Robin Hood, I think it would be appropriate if this weeks Musical Friday would host one of the most popular songs of the soundtrack of Prince of Thieves. I  always loved this song and when I was wee lass I used to sing this and "All for Love" (from The 3 Musketeers) all around the clock :) I knew the lyrics by heart and I found Brian Adams fascinating - I shall not mention the crush on Celine Dion either ;)and by the way they both come from Canada...
"(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" is a soft rock power ballad performed by Canadian rock singer Bryan Adams and co-written with Michael Kamen and Robert John "Mutt" Lange, featured on the soundtrack album from the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and on Adams' album Waking Up the Neighbours. It was an enormous chart success internationally, particularly in the United Kingdom, where it spent sixteen consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart (the longest in British chart history), seven weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and nine weeks atop the Canadian Singles Chart in Adams's native Canada. It was a number one hit on many charts and went on to sell more than 15 million copies worldwide, making it Adams' most successful song and one of the best-selling singles of all time.
***
Adams, Kamen and Lange won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television at the Grammy Awards of 1992, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song but lost to "Beauty & the Beast". Subsequently, the song has been covered by numerous singers around the world.
 Everything I Do (I Do It For You) - Brian Adams

Look into my eyes, you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart, search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do, I do it for you

Look into your heart, you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am, take my life
I would give it all, I would sacrifice

Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more
You know it's true
Everything I do, I do it for you
Oh yeah

There's no love, like your love
And no other, could give more love
There's nowhere, unless you're there
All the time, all the way, yeah

Look into your heart, baby

Oh, you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it, there's nothin' I want more
Yeah, I would fight for you, I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you, yeah I'd die for you

You know it's true
Everything I do, oh, I do it for you

Everything I do, darling
And we'll see it through
Oh we'll see it through
Oh yeah

Yeah!

Look into your heart
You can't tell me it ain't worth dying for
Oh yeah

I'll be there, yeah
I'll walk the wire
Oh, yeah

I'm going all the way, all they way, yeah

Yours truly,
A LadyBug In Love With The Legend Of Robin Hood
