  1. Has Bruce ever mentioned The Deer Hunter in the context of this song?
  2. Now would be a great time for them to upload a bunch of unseen footage on YouTube...
  3. I’ve grown used to it but I think he’s referring to there being no instrument separation. Everything just sounds all muffled with instruments sounding on top of each other.
  4. So my wife came to me the other day and said “do you know how you can listen to a song thousands of times until one day you really hear it and it hits you how great it really is? That just happened with me and Shut Out The Light”. I was proud, of course, but it also made me think that although it’s always been one of my favourites, it’s got to be on my top 10 favourite Bruce songs. One of Bruce’s finest songwriting moments.
  5. I get the historical significance of the song, but I never understood why Bruce likes it so much. The D&D tour version was a beauty, but other than that, it’s not more than good, really.
  6. The best backing vocals on Bruce songs are usually done by Bruce. Or Stevie.
  7. What a band these guys are. And I don’t believe in God, but if there is one or multiple, may Roy Bittan be blessed. He’s got to be one of my favourite musicians ever.
  8. Award shows are nothing but marketing tools. They respond to the industry’s needs. Why would anyone still care about them?
  9. That’s fine. I wasn’t trying to have this argument with you again. I was just tell you no one needs to have the song explained to them. That comes across as quite condescending.
  10. And rightly so. There’s no “but” after “no means no”. Oh, and Rizla, I don't think anyone here needs to have the song explained to them.
  11. Pretty dreadful. Sounds like an old gameboy.
  12. I think that, because she knows my starting point, she’s very appreciative of whatever little I deliver.
