We’ve been looking at new cars recently and it occurred to me I might have to change the name of this feature soon. I mean, Hybrid SUV mix doesn’t have quite the same ring to it but I’ll work on it. Today is supposed to be No Fat Friday but there isn’t much to tell. I’m down five pounds but nothing exciting has happened so I’ll just keep plugging along and fill you in when there are any revelations.
Today, back to music.
The Husband often teases me that I’m older than my years when it comes to music. I’ll have some great memory about a song and it’s impact on my life and he’ll remind me we were 3 when the song was out so probably my memory is skewed a bit. That’s the byproduct of older siblings I guess. Not a bad one if you ask me.
Here are a few Bruce Springsteen songs “kids of my generation” probably don’t know quite as well. Plus, one I just heard for the first time on XM Radio that I am ashamed I’d never heard before.
Happy Friday, here’s my favorite Bruce.
Jackson Cage: Live at the Capital Center in DC. I can almost guarantee my sister was at this show. She pulled out in a big red van full of cool kids, as I sat literally pressed against the bay window wishing I was older.
Out in the Street: Perhaps my favorite ever (if I were forced at gunpoint to choose a favorite). I’m pretty sure this is the on The Husband made most fun of me for. It’s release date is 1980. We were six. Did Bruce do Sesame Street? He should have.
Sherry Darling: I mean, c’mon. So good. Clarence! Sleeveless Denim! What’s better?!?! (BTW, this albumn-from when I was one-also has Born to Run and Thunder Road so obviously I’m correct in loving the early stuff.)
Tenth Avenue Freeze Out: If you only click on one video, choose this one. It’s Old Bruce (and old band) doing, well, old Bruce. Amazing. This is the guy who occasionally shows up at our little cheap-o gym and it’s obvious here (holy arms). This song gave me aspirations to be a back-up singer. I can croon Tenth Avenue Freeze Out with the best of them!
You Can Look: Try not to love it.
You’re Missing: And the new one to me. I don’t know how I missed this. I guess because I’m partial to “old Bruce” I haven’t heard whole new albums. My mistake. This is fantastic.
