I don't know about that, but it's probably my favorite Bruce song, and one of my favs, like, evar.

The more you know...

Oh, I love the song. It's one of the best things Bruce done imo.
Forgot to say, to me sounding like Dylan is a compliment. I don't know, I've heard it now again after a long time and felt it could fit perfectly somewhere in Desire.

Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to sleep on the beach all night
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promise to unsnap their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get off
Might be my favorite verse ever written. Song makes me get all dizzy and romantic just thinking about it, especially being a seashore Jersey rat myself.

Amazing, near-perfect song...but it doesn't hold a candle to "Incident on 57th Street."

Why must you tempt my claims with enticing counter-proposals?

Incident is another one of my favorites. Has there been a more epic fucking song? Probably, but I don't want to hear it.

But like I said, 4th of July really hits home for me. Can't get enough.

The whole lyric is just perfect to me. Simple and beautiful. And again, it just plays like a short film in my head.

I love Incident. I have a few live versions on my iPod. Love all of them.

Actually, I'm just finishing to hear The Wild, The Innocent & the E Street Shuffle again for the first time in a long time - months I guess. Gotta tell ya, I feel bad for having left aside this album for such a long time.

Hold the fuck on. When were you a Jersey shore rat? I'm supposed to be our resident Jersey shore rat!

Bruce's first three albums have a stunningly high percentage of epic quality to them.

I had absolutely no idea you were from South Jersey. Huh. Fascinating. I'm, of course, from PA, but I'm down the South Jersey shore for a majority of every summer.

Are you in one of the coast towns or inland a little bit?

I'll be back in Cape May County in less than two weeks.
