Random fact about song
Adams had a few hits before this was released, his biggest being "Straight From The Heart," but this song and the rest of the Reckless album made him a star. Vallance reflects: "Looking back, I think 'Summer Of '69' was Bryan and I at our best. We hadn't had any real 'success' yet... that would come when Reckless went to #1 on the charts and sold 12 million copies... but that was a year away. In January 1984 Bryan and I were still writing songs for all the right reasons, for the pure love and joy of it. We had nothing to prove, and even less to lose. We wrote songs to please ourselves. Everything started to unravel after Reckless."

Summer of '69 lyrics:


I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
It was the summer of '69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit Joey got married
Shoulda known we'd never get far

Oh when I look back now
The summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenin's down at the drive in
And that's when I met you

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Back in the summer of '69

Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no

And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about ya n wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that it'd last forever
and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Back in the summer of '69

hey

it was in the summer of '69

Me and my baby in '69

It was in summer
summer, the summer of '69

    You're right, at 3 minutes in you can hear him say "me and my baby in a 69"!! This totally changes the song's meaning for me after all this time... how can I ever live with myself ever again!

    Yep always thought it was strange, but looking at this and listening again, OK yes see the point
