Gosh this makes me feel old !

On this day in 1991 Bryan Adams went to No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Everything I Do I Do It For You'.
From the film Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves, it stayed at No.1 for a record breaking 16 weeks, and was also a No.1 in the US and 16 other countries.
It really does seem only like only yesterday and that after seeing the film I dragged our poor young kids around Sherwood Forest to see where it was all supposed to have happened and the now defunct Robin Hood centre in the city of Nottingham.

Thinking about it and the size of our kids now, it really was twenty years ago.

When I was a kid you used to be able to go in the Major Oak which really fired my imagination about Robin Hood hiding in there--but I think that's not been allowed for many years now. The thing from that film that's always stuck in my head is him landing somewhere near Dover setting off to travel and saying "Tonight we will dine with my father in Nottingham"  

This did it for me - the end of all the legends!

I know, it was number one when we got married in 1991 - doesn't feel like 20 years ago.

I did quite like Mel Brooks micky take - Robin Hood, Men in Tights.
