Bryan Adams – Yeah vs. Baby (2 of 2)
You say Yeah, I say Baby.
Bryan Adams says both. A lot.
Without further preamble, here’s how many times he says each from program two of Waking Up the Neighbours:
Adams’ look (t-shirt, jeans, low-maintenance haircut, real six string) in the video for There Will Never Be Another Tonight has informed my personal sense of style for much of the last 24 years. A look that’s never really in or out of style, not unlike BA himself.
Though the Yeahs won all but one song, the Babys racked up the highest single-song score (12) on this cassette side. That’s gotta count for something in a contest that means nothing!
On more serious songs like Don’t Drop That Bomb On Me, the Yeahs remain contextually appropriate; the Babys, wisely omitted.
Overindulgent stats recap/visual summary of both sides:
|Distribution by Side||Side One||Side Two|
|Total Yeahs &/or Babys Per Side||81||70|
I was impressed with the reasonably balanced distribution between the two sides. And speaking of impressive, while fitting in 48 babys (or 3.2 babys per song) is certainly noteworthy, the Yeahs hit triple-digits with a staggering 103 appearances!
Main takeaway message:
I had a lot of fun revisiting this album, as I always do when listening to BA.
Yeah & Baby.
