Release number three from Bruce’s upcoming album. Might be my favorite one so far.
Feels like a road song…. in a good way
I may get some pushback on this choice. A bit of a guilty pleasure. I love the riff and it’s great played really loud.
First 2 songs off of Bruce’s upcoming solo album are pretty much unlike anything he’s ever done and this one, like the first single, get better with each listen. Bruce‘s Roy Orbison fascination is on full display in this song.
Great covet of a Jimmy Buffet classic.
Classic Springsteen song but with a twist. Video below is from last night’s Little Steven Summer of Sorcery tour stop in Asbury Park, NJ, when during the encore, who should come out on stage but…. Amazing how that happens!
Sadly, I was not there, this is pulled off YouTube. I love though how the song kicks in right at the moment when Bruce comes out. Also love the classic Bruce/Steve back and forth at the end!
One of my favorite songs from an artist who inexplicably is still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
