Don't get me wrong, I like them as well, but they are definitely a notch lower than everything else on the album.

I really enjoy both Stolen Car versions. For the longest time, I considered the version on Tracks superior, and the story is definitely fleshed out more there with the extra verses, but lately I've returned to the original album version - it really is a gorgeous piece of music.

I found a vinyl copy of The River the other day and snapped it up. With a deluxe remastered treatment still at least a year away, I figured it was worth the short term investment, considering how shitty the quality of the CD release is. Can't wait to do a comparison...

Point Blank.

It's really hard to type while the cat is licking my hands.

I love my vinyl copies of The River and Nebraska.

As for the poll, I'm voting off Hungry Heart. I remember hearing it for the first time and thinking "Bruce did THIS? Blargh."

Which song did he write for the Ramones? I keep thinking it was Hungry Heart.

It was.

And it boggles the mind that it could possibly go this early, ahead of songs like Crush On You and I'm A Rocker.

I knew The River would have interesting results, but I didn't see that coming.

Yeah, it's cheesy, but it's way better than a lot of the songs on here. Oh well.
