The music opened earlier with “Born In The USA” by Bruce Springsteen. This song always reminds me of my Dad talking about a high school friend that never left that jungle alive.
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
I got a picture of him in her arms now
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you, can cool my desire
“I’m On Fire”, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
“I’m on Fire”, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band
I’m updating the top 100 songs list. When it comes to songs off of Springsteen’s “Born In The USA” album, the live versions need to come from ‘84-’86 even if they look like some nearly scrambled form of HBO at your grandmother’s house way back when.
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory, well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of
Glory days yeah they’ll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl’s eye
Glory days, glory days
“Glory Days” Bruce Springsteen
The first song this morning either comes from Atlantic City or Nebraska, I’m not 100% certain. However I do know Bruce, Lil’ Stevie and Clarence blew up the Chicken Man last night. You know the one over on E Street.
Pandora opened with the Boss “Working on the Highway”. This box set was my favorite album for a number of years(even when they made the mistake of not including “Glory Days”. I’m really surprised that they didn’t release a similar version from say 85-95, 95-05, 05-15.
Some heading home to their families, some looking to get hurt
Some going down to Stovell wearing trouble on their shirts
I had a brother at Khe Sahn fighting off the Viet Cong
They’re still there, he’s all gone, gone gone gone
“Born In The USA”, Bruce Springsteen
