Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?


Bryan Adams

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was featured in the movie Don Juan DeMarco, starring Johnny Depp. It was the last of three huge hits Adams did for movies. In 1991, he recorded "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" for Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, and in 1993 he sang with Rod Stewart and Sting on "All For Love" for The 3 Musketeers.
In the US, this was a #1 hit for five weeks.
Paco De Lucia played the Flamenco guitar. He comes from a Spanish family famous for their guitarists, and has also worked with Chick Corea.
Various women's groups contacted Adams when this came out, which led to his publishing a book of photos featuring Canadian women, with proceeds going to breast cancer research. Some of the women in the 1999 book are Shania Twain, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion, and Neve Campbell.
This was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song, but lost to "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas.

He plays it in "The House of fools", where he also play a part. Good film - I recommend it
- Joanna, Kielce
Oh good lord this is a bad song. I now know that when travelling overseas all I have to do to impress a woman is to say that I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really love them. Then they will be mine. Really this song could use about 250 more really's in it and then it would have the lyrical power.

Yeah, one of the most beautiful songs I´ve ever heard, even here in Mexico, we have a folk version with "mariachi", which was as successful as the original one.

Okay, how wrong could you be!! Honestly!! Bryan had a friend that was dying of breast cancer so he got the idea to raise money for the cause. She, Donna, is on the front cover - "Made in Canada". He then went on to do one in the uk for the Haven breast cancer charity called "Haven". He has just finished another one with Calvin Klein with US women. Hope this clears things up for u. Check out it has the books there.

Truly one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
- Pavitra, Cape Town, South Africa
This is one of the best compliments that one can ever say to a woman.

A band so baffling, even their names were contrived. Check your score in the Ramones version of Fact or Fiction.

The "All I Want" singer went through a long depression, playing some shows when he didn't want to be alive.
