People the Big Muddy is about 1.9 miles from where I'm sitting. Be kind.

Sorry, that song has always really bugged me.  It hurts me very much that it even exists.  

I absolutely get it’s 100% metaphorical, but I just cannot listen to it.  Ever.

Words of a forever lost love and an achingly beautiful melody to it is all I need. I've been there and so many others have...Seeing your lost love with her/his new love. It hurts like hell in your heart and this song and its sentiment and that melody with beautiful harmonies by Bobby Hatfield of The Righteous Brothers makes me feel the very same way but it heals me through a feeling of sympathy rather than destroys me.
It's a masterpiece in my eyes.

I get all of that.  No argument about the sentiment or melody.  

It’s the title.  Sorry, I just can’t  listen to it.

This is actually a very difficult choice,

since you can only vote for one song!*

 

 

 

 

 

* Kidding of course, I really like the HT/LT albums :)

It's very close now between Pony Boy and Real Man for not only the worst HT song but maybe also for what is the worst Bruce Springsteen song in general.

To speed things up, they should both be ditched at the end of this round even if not on equal votes. Whichever is left is next anyway.

BTW, Real Man is worst. The worst, I say.

What is wrong with you people that you don't recognise Pony Boy as an intimate glimpse into Bruce's new life as a father?  :angry:
I'm sure he only meant it as a little gift, a private moment shared with fans.  It shouldn't be compared with any other of his songs.  It should be seen as a bonus track, a sort of Easter egg.

If the bottom two of HT were ditched in each of the first four rounds, the two albums would then finish at the same time.

Exactly.  It’s such a sweet, lovely song IMO.
