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. 

Favorite Line:

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. 

The music opened this morning with Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark”. 

Favorite Line: 

You can’t start a fire
You can’t start a fire without a spark
This gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancing in the dark

“I Saw Her Standing There”, The Beatles

I had to stick with The Beatles signing this song, but there is a fun version of it where Paul McCartney makes Bruce Springsteen look like a starstruck fan, which is true. It can be found here.

Bruce Springsteen with back to back appearances closes out 75 days of tracking the first song played. With that he and the E Street band move into second place.  This time it was “Girls With The Summer Clothes”, it’s appropriate  with 80 degree days. Sounds and feels like summer to me.  

Favorite Line:  

Lovers they walk by
Holdin’ hands two by two

Through 75 days.

Friday opens with the Boss and “Pink Cadillac”  Can’t go wrong with a little innuendo, or a lot for that matter.  This one could easily have found itself in My Top 100 Songs, but it didn’t cross my plate when I was forming the list. 

Favorite Line:

They say Eve tempted Adam with an apple
But man I ain’t going for that
I know it was her… Pink Cadillac
