Top 100 Singles of 1991 in Canada

I Do It for You Bryan AdamsAccording to RPM Magazine, the biggest song of 1991 in Canada was “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You” by North Vancouver’s Bryan Adams. It was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and spent 9 consecutive weeks at #1. “I Do It For You” is one of the most successful songs of all-time globally. It is estimated that the single sold in excess of 15 million copies worldwide. Fourteen songs from the year-end top 100 chart below involve Canadian artists which have been bolded in red. Note that a mistake made in the chart was that #90 and #94 were given the same entry. The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from radio airplay and nationwide sales data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years.
