So I was walking through the grocery store this evening picking up a few things that The Wife emailed me to bring home. After I’d gone through my list and gleefully singing, “A loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter!” on my way to checkout, I came across the beer aisle. If you’ve read my stuff or follow me on Twitter you know I’m a big fan of beer so I have a tendency to stop and gaze at the beer aisle with the reverence that it so justly deserves.
As folks do when they’re faced with something they want to remember, I snapped a picture so I could remember the beautiful sight, and put it on Instagram & Twitter with the following message: “So this is what Bryan Adams was singing about…”
Quite honestly I was going for the Bryan Adams classic Heaven, but my followers almost immediately pointed out that there were a couple of other options that would have worked as well. @TonyMazur suggested that this may be the Summer of 69 aisle, @spiedrahater correctly guessed Heaven, and @lexus1scott brilliantly observed that if those bottles broke, they would definitely Cut Like A Knife.
Doing a quick check of the Bryan Adams song catalog, it appears that the man likes to sing about the beer aisle quite a bit:
- All For Love
- Cloud Number Nine
- (Everything I Do) I Do It For You <– My personal favorite
- Here I AM
- I’m Ready
- Let’s Make It A Night To Remember
- One Night Love Affair
- Please Forgive Me
- Thought I’d Dies And Gone To Heaven
- You’ve Been A Friend To Me
I’ve got to say that I have a new found respect for Bryan Adams. It takes a certain kind of badassery to be singing about the beer aisle all of these years and disguising them as love songs. Well done sir. Tonight I tip a Molsen in your honor. Take off eh!
