Phanan said as a romantic I should enjoy Born To Run. Is he right?

Very right. The whole album's a young love tale. The good and the bad. The lyrics are as romantic as it gets.

No, but Girls In Their Summer Clothes and Radio Nowhere are good songs.

And wait, Coldplay?!

I have that on CD. I'll send the tracks to anyone who wants it within the next couple of days.

The closing track was in my DI list.

Okay cool. What album is Jungleland on? I thought it was incredibly beautiful.

I'm willing to give Coldplay a shot. Lip service is not very convincing to me. I mean, if I just listened to what people had said, I'd love Radiohead, right?

Any suggestions from you?

Oh, and I forgot that I liked that one too. 3 good songs and I've never bothered to listen to it all the way through.

I totally disagree with Ax about sax not working in rock. Springsteen, Bowie, and Pink Floyd have all used sax.

Everyone I was thinking for the CD exchange in B&C that we could make a CD representing 3-5 artists others should know. Then if someone likes what they hear you tell them which albums to get. Sort of a musical exchange. Would you guys participate in that?

I'll also include the bonus track, which is dedicated to a friend of Springsteen's who died, and is really a beautiful, simple tune.
