Bryan Adams reveals real meaning behind “Summer of ’69.” (Yes. It’s a sex thing…)

Bryan Adams has shed light on the real meaning behind his iconic 1984 hit Summer Of ’69. 

Many believed the sunshine anthem recalled the rocker’s heady summers in 1969, however the Canadian star has now revealed the truth. 

The singer, 64, admitted he was going to call the song Best Days Of My Life but opted instead to reference the sex position 69 – something he previously stated fans would be ‘thick’ not to realize.

He told the Sunday Times: ‘Well, I was going to call the song Best Days of My Life but mentioning ’69’ felt a bit more provocative. Isn’t this talk a bit sexy for breakfast time?’

When asked about ‘the best days of his life’, he added: ‘Oh, the best days are now, always now. When I wrote that song I was trying hard to imagine or fantasize what life would hold, but I’m there now and, you know, it’s great.’

In 2008, Bryan confessed: ‘There is a slight misconception it’s about a year, but it’s not… “69” has nothing to do about a year, it has to do with a sexual position.

‘At the end of the song, the lyric says that “it’s me and my baby in a 69”. You’d have to be pretty thick in the ears if you couldn’t get that lyric.’

He later said: ‘I only ever wrote that title because it made me laugh’.

It makes us laugh too…
