  1. I have an extra ticket. "Face value". Let me know if you want it.
  2. I know many of you will find this inexplicable, but it is possible to love and respect the man and his music, but be opposed to his political views. Bruce is a poetic musical genius sent to us from above, but a useful idiot dope with his politics (IMHO).
  3. Thanks for posting this. I knew Alex Cooley and love the fact there's a typo. I bid and won it on ebay!
  4. Dude - it's Bruce Springsteen. there should be nothing "secret" about if you were trying to open a museum about him. Further, your lame screen name and lack of understanding of his album names show you're not exactly someone who is deeply passionate. Why don't you give up the ruse and tell us what your real intentions were. Woke up and realized that you could make a quick buck by getting a famous person's handwritten artifacts and putting them on Ebay I'm guessing. Nice try. If I'm wrong, then tell us more about this awesome super-secret museum you're creating. If not, get lost!
  5. I can not stop watching the video for this song. Outside of Brilliant Disguise, IMHO this is his best video ever. The man defines PRESENCE and dignity in every shot of this. His stiff movement, eye contact, and lack of eye contact is precise and the way he lip synchs is perfect. Everything about this video seems so authentic and well executed. Anyone else besides me this impressed with it?
  6. I'll start... "A coyote with someone’s Chihuahua in its teeth skitters 'cross my veranda in the night" Could anyone else in this world sing a line like that and make it sounds so good? (rhetorical question. No) What are your favorite examples of this?
  7. Great post. I feel you brother. Have the same reaction to this record. I'm 48 - been divorced for a few years and feeling old and hopeless/hopeful at the same time. This is my "old man" record too. The video for Western Stars is an homage to being old, weathered and still cool as hell. He moves and carries himself like a stiff old man and it's somehow beautiful and inspirational.
  8. I have been amazed at how CLEAR the vocals are on all three tracks. Starting with The Rising production, the vocals got clearer and elevated from the music, but there seems to be an even newer technology used for this album. The vocals are so clear it's jarring.
  9. Thanks to everyone who voted for my version of Empty Sky. So close to getting that awesome t-shirt! This song means a lot to me as I was present at the World Trade Center the morning of 9/11. Anything I ever sing from The Rising album is coming 100% straight from the heart.
  10. I'm clearly in the minority here as I don't really think it's a good/memorable song. The chorus and overall feel of like Hello Sunshine and TGMM immediately hooked me and I wanted to listen to them over and over. This one - not so much.
  11. Agree with all of this. This album is such a weird mix, and the title track is among his worst IMO (used for political stuff too ugh) . But the collection of songs you reference are so layered and synched up in terms of theme. The weirdness of Queen of Supermarket and Outlaw Pete overshadowed a lot here too.
  12. I'm 48 years old and thus am starting to realize that this could be the most romantic line ever written. Particularly for those of us that are too damn tired to drive all night to buy shoes. That is all.
