‘Nebraska.’

This one is kind of gruesome. Or maybe ‘cold’ is a better word, here.

‘Thunder Road.’

I still like this live version the best. I wish I could connect with an audience like that, that effortlessly.

Geez, Clarence Clemons died three years ago.

“Johnny 99.”

Johnny 99, Bruce Springsteen

Seriously, Nebraska is a hell of a lot less annoying an album once you force yourself to see it as folk.

“No Surrender.”

…Thirty years since that version. More than half my life ago.

“I’m On Fire.”

I suspect that there will be a theme involving warmth around here for a bit.

“Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town.”

Yes.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am afraid that it is that time again.

Time for The Song. (more…)

“Thunder Road.”

Thunder Road, Bruce Springsteen

That’s the live version and the link is to the studio version, but… you gotta respect the crowd skills.  Well, you don’t actually have to, but… you should. I know just enough about how Bruce does this to know that I will, never be able to duplicate it.

“Rosalita (Come Out Tonight).”

I seriously wish Bruce Springsteen would just write songs more like this, and less like he’s trying to be Arlo Guthrie or something.

“No Surrender.”

…And, geez, I’m back to liking this version again.  Maybe it’s the time of the year that’s the trigger?

“Shenandoah.”

So, this morning I’m drinking my brunch in an Irish bar waiting for the rest of the family to finish up going to church…

IT WAS A GLORIOUS MOMENT OF PURE, CRYSTALLINE AWESOME, ACTUALLY.  THANKS FOR ASKING.

…anyway, so this comes up on the jukebox.

Shenandoah, Bruce Springsteen

And I think to myself, Yup.  That tears it.  Next time, go with the Ploughman’s Platter.

Well, that and Dammit, this bar needs Wi-fi so that I can watch that Lawrence Welk thing.

“Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town.”

Yeah.  You all knew that this was inevitable.  No sense in hanging it over your heads.

Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town, Bruce Springsteen

Still, this is a tradition among my people.
