Three Things I Learned from Watching Bryan Adams' "Heaven"



(Each week, KC Pitch music editor Jason Harper and I will watch a music video and share three things we've learned after viewing it. Jason's up first, with Bryan Adams' "Heaven." If you have any suggestions of things we should watch, email him or email me. -- Annie Zaleski)

Bryan Adams, "Heaven"

1. I don't remember any of the 413,000 other power ballads that sound exactly like this song.

2. If you're going to get pulled over for drunk driving while on a date, it's actually safe to have it happen outside of a theater where Bryan Adams is playing, because if your date wanders off and falls in love with Bryan Adams while he's singing "Heaven," the acne-scarred Canadian sex bomb will not be able to steal your date after the show because the door to the outside will be chained shut and there will be a blizzard in the alley.

3. If you're a man and need to run somewhere on foot, don't do it while wearing a flappy-sleeved white T-shirt tucked into high-waisted jeans.
