"(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams. Written by Adams, Michael Kamen and Robert John "Mutt" Lange, featured on two albums simultaneously on its release, the soundtrack album from the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and on Adams' sixth studio solo album Waking Up the Neighbours (1991). The song was an enormous chart success internationally, particularly in the United Kingdom, where it spent sixteen consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart (the longest in British chart history), seven weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and nine weeks atop the Canadian Singles Chart in Adams's native Canada.[1][2] Billboard ranked it as the No. 1 song for 1991.[3] At the time of its seven-week stint in America, it was the longest running #1 since The Police's "Every Breath You Take" spent eight weeks at #1 during the summer of 1983. It was a number one hit on many charts and went on to sell more than 15 million copies worldwide, making it Adams' most successful song and one of the best-selling singles of all time.[4]

Adams, Kamen and Lange won a Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television at the Grammy Awards of 1992,[5] and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song but lost to "Beauty and the Beast".[6] Subsequently, the song has been covered by hundreds of singers and artists around the world.
