  1. I read this post the other day, and this particular part here stuck in my head and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. This right here is exactly what I’ve been trying to say for all of these years, but never quite had the right words. I think this might just be one of the best summaries of my/our love for Bruce that I’ve ever known. So I really do appreciate you sharing this with us BillyB, as it’s something I’m always going to remember and think about whenever I listen to Bruce now. I wasn’t on the Lake back then to know Mark, but through this thread and your regular posts honouring his memory, I really feel like I do now.
  2. I’ve listened to it a lot now, and it’s growing on me. Still completely stuck in my head. I’ve figured the only thing that bugs me about it is the way Bruce says ‘my’ in the chorus. I wish that was in a higher key (is that the right term?) but apart from that, I really do bloody like it. My friend who came with me to see Bruce on Broadway back in June last year even said she likes it, which is pretty high praise as she’s a long way off my level of love for Bruce. So that makes me happy. Bruce’s vocals in this song, although I know it’s not to everyone’s taste on here, make me wonder if perhaps it’s more accessible.. well maybe that’s not the right word.. appealing(?) song to non Bruce fans. If anything, I think this is a pretty nice, radio friendly song with a potentially deep meaning to some. The two songs released so far really do contrast, but I believe that they are a good sign of a very strong album to come, in my opinion.
  3. Yeah, I know you’re right. Sometimes it’s hard not to dwell on things though, as much as I try. If there’s anything I know, it’s that I’m in no way the only person my age that feels like this. But yes, it’s just one of those things. Gotta keep moving!
  4. I’d 100% sell a kidney to hear the saxophone from live versions of Hungry Heart live right now
  5. Oh I love that, thank you. Definite Orbison vibes. What year was this? Maybe it was recorded around that time, he sounds really good. Then again, I thought he sounded really good on Broadway too, so I think it just shows he’s still got really good control of his voice
  6. Be True - Detroit ‘88 Doesn’t this song just make you want to dance/fall in love?
  7. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with Bruce’s vocals on this. I was kind of expecting him to shy away from anything too daring on the new album which is fine, but he’s gone all out with this track. Definitely not the gruff Bruce we’ve become so used to, and I kinda like the change.
  8. Also kudos to New Jersey dot com for getting the song name wrong
  9. Interesting to see a mention of Roy Orbison, I was actually thinking of that myself.. especially because I know have ‘there goes my baby there goes my heart’ from Only the Lonely in my head after listening to the new song. Also the strings can be seen as a nod to this song too
  10. Not that I’m comparing this album to Greetings, but I guess if you only listened to Blinded by the Light and The Angel.. that’s quite a contrast too (albeit not in sequence). So I’m sure Bruce knows what he’s doing here!
  11. I really can’t believe the stark contrast between this and Hello Sunshine, especially considering they’re next to each other on the album. It makes me wonder about the overall sequence and flow of the album
  12. Well I mean you are on a Bruce Springsteen forum... full of Bruce Springsteen fans
  13. Exactly. And it gets better as the song goes on!
