and personally thats fine by me. ive come to realize that ive moved on, and i dont need anything more from u2. theyve given me so much great music from the 80s and 90s, i dont need more.
ain't that the truth, I feel the exact same way.

Hey, I'm already looking for a new appartment, so if you want to come over...

Oh, and to stay on topic, I haven't talked about Bruce covering songs. He and the E-Street Band can really make a song their own. In this time many are talking about/playing Bruce's version of War (originally by Eddie Starr, IIRC), but he also has many other great covers. My personal favourite is Raise Your Hand (don't know who did it originally) and there's a great version of it on the Live 1975-1985 box set. His 'Detroit Medley' is also a treat (mainly a medley of Devil With A Blue Dress On, CC Rider, Good Golly Miss Molly and Jenny Take A Ride With Me). If you ever get the chance to get the Winterland Night bootleg, don't miss it! Besides great renditions of these 2 covers there's also a nice version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town (hey, the show was at 15 December) with a funny introduction to it (as I said before, Bruce is a great storyteller).

I think I'm going into a Bruce-phase again (sorry U2...)

C ya!

Marty

I'm going to play Born To Run in honour of this thread.

War is by Edwin Starr, not Eddie Star, by the way. Great song.

WAR!? WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?

Great post, Marty. I think I agree with every word! Born in the USA was a difficult record for me (and still is) but the songs definitely have more depth than they appear to on the surface. Plus, I cried during a drum solo during that song on that tour, and I hate drum solos and I never liked that song, so what the hell was that all about?




maybe that was for Zoo Confessionals
