first time i heard bruce springsteen i was all whatever
and then they put point blank on and i was all omg
and these were the days before people said omg
so i turned it up.
they were playing the river all the way through for some reason.
maybe it was sunday.
people say i dont listen to the radio, oh let me tell you something
i listen to the radio.
anyways point blank came on and then drive all night at some point
now i know what youd say, that we currently live in the golden age of radio
where every station has something amazing and fantastic and ground breaking
but back then it wasnt like that at all.
these were the days when there was only 4 channels on tv.
youd think radio would be amazing, but no. which is one reason mtv blew doors
and radio copied it like cray cray
which doesnt mean it improved it.
for if you recall, mtv embraced dancing in the dark way more than no surrender
it preferred glory days over even the live version of born in the usa.
mtv wanted that dumb red bandana on bruces head
they wanted one on clarence too.
bruce didnt know what to do about it so he played around and did what they said
and the only time it was any good was on im on fire.
but seriously how do you screw up hey little baby is yr daddy home
did he go and leave you
i got a bad desire
happy sixty fifth birthday,
amazing singer, guitarist, songwriter
and right up there with prince
as the greatest performer in rock.
