Racing in the Streets

The Boss. There is only one. Bruce Springsteen has released new live material. It is amazing.

I have written many times about how Brice Springsteen was my first hero. It was 1978. I listened to ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ and I was forever lost. He was my working class hero. Inlistened to those lyrics, over and over again. Until I knew by heart. Still do. Maybe I always did, because it always felt like Bruce do. wrote about me. That is what a storyteller does.

Here is one of tha grande songs from the best album ever made, Racing in the Streets -Live 2009.

Some guys they just give up living

And start dying little by little piece by piece

Some guys come home from work and wash up

Then go racin’ in the street

Tonight tonight the strip’s just right

I wanna blow ’em all out of their seats

Calling out around the world

Cause summer’s here and the time is right

We’re goin’ racin’ in the street’
