“Summer of ’69” is a song recorded by the Canadian musician Bryan Adams from his fourth album, Reckless.
The song is about a dilemma between settling down or trying to become a rock star.
The song was written by Adams and his longtime songwriting collaborator Jim Vallance. “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. “Summer of ’69” is an up-tempo rock song. According to later claims by Adams, the title is a reference to the sex position, not the year, but Vallance disputes this.
