This is the last thing that I'm going to say about Can-Con. If you live in Canada, work with Canadian songwriters, Canadian producers then you are Canadian. Period.

This is a true story, but funny. A bride asked for her favourite song, Bryan Adams 'Everything I do…' - The theme from Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves (a joke itself) to be played at her wedding.
The day before, the church organist was taken ill and the previous incumbent, an elderly gentleman, stood in. As the bride came in, the organist saw 'Theme from Robin Hood' and played the bouncy tune from the 1950's TV series on Robin Hood, which goes with the words 'Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen...'

A lot of people know that, before he made it big in music, Bryan Adams worked as a dishwasher in the Vancouver area.
Many don't know that before this job, he worked as a refrigerator. . . .

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Straight From The Heart"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
You say it's easy but who's to say, that we'd be able to keep it this way.
Why They're Nonsensical:
These lyrics may not seem very sensible, but in fact they are. If you listen to the following line it is quite clear that "but who's to say" is asking the question not of the previous line "you say it's easy" but of the following "that we'd be able to keep it this way". Therefore it makes perfect sense!

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"(Everything I Do) I Do It For You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you
I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you
Ya I'd die for you
You know it's true
Everything I do
I do it for you
Why They're Insincere:
Yeah, right Mr Adams, it's a great song.... but can we trust you or are you a liar? I'd lie for you, okay you could do, but don't believe then we know it's true every word you are singing
Submitted by: Lars Qui Rit

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"A Night to Remember"
The Dirty Lyrics:
I love the way ya move tonight
Beads of sweat drippin down your skin
Me lying here - n you lyin there
Our shadows on the wall and our hands everywhere
Why They're Dirty:
Okay, the lyrics pretty much sum up the message, but the imagery is strong. Plus Adams' raspy vocals adds to the song's sex appeal
Submitted by: Waterbabe
"Summer of 69"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Those were the best days of my life
The summer of 69
Why They're Dirty:
I went to one of his concerts and he mentioned that 69 does not refer to the year, but it does refer to the sexual position. He was probably referring to the summer he lost his virginity, and no it wasn't 1969.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Run To You"
The Lyrics:
I got my mind made up, I need to feel your touch…
This should definitely be “I have got my mind made up…”
Submitted by: Johnny Shepperd
"(Everything I Do) I Do It For You"
The Lyrics:
Everything I do, I do it for you (same as title)
The "it" is unnecessary, since "Everything I do" IS the "it" in question. (In other words, "Everything I do" is the clause which is defines what "I do for you." This line should simply be "Everything I do I do for you."

Music With a Warning Label:

"So Far So Good"
The "warning" is really on the CD itself. It's a picture disc made up to resemble a truck tire in appearance (a monster tire is on the cover too). There's the artist and album names, the track list and copyright info, written in a circumscribe format. After the record label credits and warning (copying prohibited, ...) there's a simple sentence: Do not inflate above 50 p.s.i. This "warning" is an example of humor more than anything else.
