Bryan Adams Song Meanings and Interpretations
2 years ago
It's about the summer of '69' -the time that he was with that freak of a girl that always wanted to do it '69' style. -(a guy & a girl in the 'north/south' position) And "got my first 6 string" -meaning he lost his virginity for the first time. "we were young and restless" -man how much more obvious could it get with the sexual reference. And then when he says "sometimes when I play that old 6 string" -now when he does the 'four knuckle shuffle' by him self he fantasizes about her and their '69er' escapades.
Ah such a classic. Perhaps the song that got Adams established. Nevertheless, it's about his personal story of his first guitar and a temporary girlfriend, happening during the notorious summer of 69. 1969. So many stories. Would've been much fun if we were teenagers then.
Pop culture teaches us that you need to chase, spoil, treat like a queen a woman. The long term goal is to please her on one hand and admittedly have her on the other. Real life teaches us that on many (MANY) occasions you have to say no, not call back, not doing all her favors, in order the above goal to be achieved. Why doesn't pop culture consent that?
