Bangalore Days – Nam Ooru Bengaluru

“Summer of ’69” is a song recorded by Canadian recording artist Bryan Adams, from his fourth studio album, Reckless (1984). The song was written by Adams and Jim Vallance, a long-time writing partner of Adams. “Summer of ’69” was produced by Adams and Bob Clearmountain. It was released in June 1985 under A&M Records as the fourth single from Reckless. As with most Adams songs, “Summer of ’69” is an up-tempo rock song.

The song was released with two B-side tracks; “Kids Wanna Rock” and “The Best Was Yet to Come”, which had previously appeared on the albums Reckless and Cuts Like a Knife respectively. “Summer of ’69” received favourable reviews from music critics. The single had a strong effect on music charts internationally, with its highest peak being number four in the Netherlands, and its least successful charting country being Germany. The track was promoted with a music video, which was filmed by Steve Barron. The video features Adams and his backing band in a variety of settings, including running from the police. (Source)
