  1. Very cool. That’s definitely the sound. Such a nuanced thing that totally makes the sedated mood of that song!
  2. After listening to this song today for probably the millionth time in my life, I discovered an interesting musical element in it that feels like the key to giving the song it’s mournful quality. It’s a sound that run beneath the majority of the song quietly and makes a sound like “oooo” at the end of each beat. It is there quietly for most of the song - except for in parts like “she won’t take the train" the quiet parts, and at the very end piece. You can hear the sound I'm talking about most clearly right after he says Billy at the start of the song. Once you hear it try listening for it throughout the whole song and it’s kind of cool. There is definitely a vibe to this song, and I think that subtle sound gives the song its soul. Hear it? Anyone have any ideas what instrument would have made this sound?
  3. I just don't get it. These guys birthed these songs and played them hundreds of times flawlessly and consistently. Their livelihood was these songs. A few years go by and they forget their parts? Makes no sense.
  4. This is the most awkward thing I've seen. So many questions... Why was Bruce going through the motions to pull the whole band back together at this point in time when there would be no on stage reunion for another four long years? For everyone except Bruce, this was their livelihood. Why tease all them with this "rehearsal"? Why is everybody acting like they've forgotten how to play these songs. I play cover songs and can do them in my sleep after many years of playing. How could the band "forget" how these songs go? You can just feel how awkward everyone feels wondering if this is the start of the band getting back together. Painful
  5. Great points. I would add however that some of the songs share that point of view but then point in the direction of the character rising above it i.e. Badlands, Racing in the streets etc.
  6. Yes! That’s the secret to growing old gracefully.That’s the secret to growing old gracefully
  7. This is just such an amazing line about the feel of growing older. Also picturing it within the message of One Step Up signifying a stale relationship. Brilliant.
  8. Can someone post a link to BITUSA starting without them? Have to hear this!
  9. I have an extra ticket. "Face value". Let me know if you want it.
  10. 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).
  11. Thanks for posting this. I knew Alex Cooley and love the fact there's a typo. I bid and won it on ebay!
  12. 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!
  13. 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?
  14. I'll do Empty Sky for the contest. Thanks!
