Please forgive me - Bryan Adams

When I bought this single, I hadn't actually heard it. I might have thought twice before buying it if I had, I think. 'Please forgive me' was written by Bryan Adams and Robert John 'Mutt' Lange and treads a much too often trodden path. According to an article in Wikipedia: 'the passion Adams sings the song with is breathtaking'. I would say instead that the lack of originality in this song is breathtaking, but there you go.

The single reached number 2 in the UK, number 7 in the USA and number 1 in Australia. The single reached number 3 in the Dutch Top 40.

EDIT:: As you can read in the reactions below, I've had a request to remove the divshare box with this post. I guess even Bryan Adams himself thinks these two tracks shouldn't be listened to. In this case, he's certainly right, so I'm happy to oblige.

My collection: 7" single no. 2038
Found: Virgin Megastore, London, October 22, 1993
Cost: 1 pound
Tracks: 'Please forgive me' / 'Can't stop this thing we started (live)'

  2. As the author of CanadianBands.com, I would like to commend you for posting an honest review of this song. It doesn't surprise me to see web sheriff is complaining about your honesty tho. It seems they only approve of hot air up adams' ass.
    My partner and I have recently been harassed by them because I will not succumb to pressure and agree to be censored. He recorded a disco single, and played with Sweeney Todd - those are the facts.
    But again, thank you for the honesty. Unbiased, open and honest opinions are sorely lacking when it comes to artists who've apparently forgotten they're no better than anyone else. Keep up the good work.
