The lights go out and it’s just the three of us: you, me, and all that stuff we’re so scared of
Ought to be easy, ought to be simple enough
Man meets woman and they fall in love
But the house is haunted and the ride gets rough
You’ve got to learn with what you can’t rise above
SONG OF THE DAY: NO SURRENDER - JOEL PLASKETT
Covering The Boss.
I love when my favourite things combine. I also love how he tries to put some of the Boss raspyness into his voice.
here’s to you, east coast.

Oh good, I’m not the only one thinking of this song with the current weather.
This and “4th of July, Asbury Park.” Especially when seeing pictures of Asbury Park in Sandy.
Title: 4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy), live
Artist: Bruce Springsteen
“4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy),” Bruce Springsteen, live
Required listening today.
I wish I got to see mid-70s era Bruce (and Clarence, tear.) But I will definitely settle for 2012 Bruce. But if he doesn’t play Thunder Road, I’m going to be majorly bummed. The downside to having so much material.
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that’s me and I want you only
Well I got this guitar
And I learned how to make it talk
And my car’s out back
If you’re ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
And I know you’re lonely
For words that I ain’t spoken
It’s a town full of losers
And I’m pulling out of here to win.
Skip to 3:35 if you wish. I almost cried.
The Boss is finally coming back to Toronto. I need to find a way to afford this.
I’ve been reading this book. Which mostly means I constantly have “Badlands” stuck in my head.
I remember watching this when it first aired live. The song still gives me goosebumps every time.

Despite remaining off the road for the past two years, Bruce Springsteen has been showing up all over the place. Last month, the Boss strummed a few chords from “Born To Run” on a New Jersey beach and now video has surface of him busking with a guitar in Boston’s Public Garden. Reportedly in town to drop his son off at college, it seems Bruce decided to have a little fun and borrowed a local busker’s guitar. We’re pretty sure his son was not surprised—even move-in day is still another day in the Springsteen household.

Sometimes I don’t think it’s possible for me to love this man any more than I already do. Then things like this happen.
