The early candidates included Kate Bush, Annie Lennox and Lisa Stansfield. But, ultimately, two artists competed for the opportunity to write lyrics for Maid Marian's song in the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves: Peter Cetera and Bryan Adams. "In all honesty, Cetera's was too pretty," said Michael Kamen, the film's composer. "I write sweet melodies, and sometimes they need someone to deliver them with enough authority to make sure that you don't fall asleep." Adams, who hadn't released an album in four years, won thanks to his rough voice and heart-tugging lyrics about Marian and Robin's romance.
