Michael Buble was inspired to become a singer by Bryan Adams' 1984 album 'Reckless'

Michael Buble was inspired to become a singer by Bryan Adams.

The 'Feeling Good' singer looked up to his fellow Canadian vocalist when he first started out, in particular his 1984 album 'Reckless'.

He told NationalPost.com: "I was nine years old when I bought this album, it wasn't even a CD, it was a cassette, and I remember going: 'This is a guy from Vancouver; if he can make it, maybe I can, too.' 'Reckless' has the greatest songs: 'Heaven', 'Cuts Like a Knife', 'Run to You', 'One Night Love Affair', so many. I remember studying the album cover, like - someday."

Michael, 37, also remembers writing his first hit, 'Home', and the buzz it gave him, although he admits it faded a little over time.

He added: "One thing I do remember is I wrote a song called 'Home', and I remember thinking, 'God, this is a good song. I wrote a good song.'

"Then I remember the 57th million time I sang it, thinking: 'I don't know if I want to sing this another 57 million times.' Then, of course, I sang it a billion times again."

Michael's new album 'To Be Loved' is out now.
