Bryan Adams, “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”
“There’s nowhere unless you’re there,” bleats Bryan Adams, sounding like a cross between an asthmatic mountain goat and, uh, Bryan Adams. How true that was in the summer of 1991, when this soul-crushing theme song from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was inescapable, topping the charts worldwide. (Its 16 straight weeks at Number One in Britain was an all-time U.K chart record.) Bonus demerits for the video, which features many clips of Kevin Costner, looking dewy-eyed and “romantic,” and wearing tights.
