Song of the Day TBT Bruce Springsteen – Open All Night

From 1982’s classic Nebraska, probably the most “upbeat” song on the album.  There’s a bootleg album out there called Nebraska Live where Bruce in introducing this song, tells a hilarious story about having to go to traffic court and after listening the guy in front of him plead his case for why he was doing 60mph on a residential street (he was drunk and thought it was the highway!) and then its Bruce’s turn, he says “well, Judge…” and then rips into a great version of the song.  Anyway, I digress.  I used to love to blast this song on my car stereo on those nighttime commutes between DC and Philly.
