    Susan Tedeschi before she got together with Derek Trucks. Reminiscent of a young Janis Joplin.

    The man doing the hip shimmy shake is my dance spirit kindred...**hands above my head shimmy shimmy shake*** Funny I should adore this song being a Christian but I do.

    the world is NOT Godless I know there is a God. But a cool vibey song nonetheless. without further adoo….

    It is a nice vibe song probably because it sounds almost like "My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison but using the trumpet for color rather than an electric guitar. Maybe they intended it that way considering the name the song and of the band.

    Interesting note. Harrison's song itself was purported to take the melody line from the Chiffon's "He's So Fine". George said it was unintentional, but I think he payed anyway.

    Re: What are you listening to?

    My favorite Pink Floyd song from back in my stoner days. With a nickel of panama red, a bottle of Boone's Farm Apple Blossom Hill Seeds Bucket Whatever and a really good bong I think I can remember listening to this song for 8 hrs straight once without getting up too far from the floor. I wanted to either open or close the curtains, but they were like 5 feet away which was impossibly ridiculous to need to travel without getting a ham and cheese sandwich for it, so I figured it was best to focus on what was important to preserve perspective until I could travel in a different direction and get a ham and cheese sandwich when it was absolutely necessary.

    Best to take another hit, another pull, and watch what was going on with the ceiling, because it was too cool, whatever it was doing up there.

    Re: What are you listening to?

    Rocked up version of Jimmy Cliff's song. I always found Springsteen's interpretation and covers of other artists pretty interesting. Clarence's sax flourish in this one really hits home for me.

    Springsteen never had a #1 hit, although this Springsteen original covered by another band did reach #1. Do you know what it is?

    "Blinded By The Light" Manfred Mann?? Maybe Patti Smith "Because The Night"??

    The Boss didn't write that way. He was more of a poet in the Dylan/Guthrie vein and his music didn't really follow formula necessary for "The Top Of Pops" although I thought "Dancing In The Dark" was geared to be a hit single.

    To me, Dylan, Springsteen, Paul Simon and Jim Morrison were the most important poets of the last 50 odd years. The music was somewhat incidental.

    +1

    I've been going further back lately, revisiting some of the transitional era Pink Floyd. Post-Syd Barrett but pre-Dark Side when they were still finding their way. Not quite laser focused in their song writing or identity yet, but showing promise of the band they would become.

    The brass ensemble in this one is awesome.

    Good list that could also include Kurt Cobain, and I always thought that to Bruce at least, that the music was as important to him as the poetry. He loved, at least early on to be a bandleader.

    The original Who are still my favorite band. Saw them 5 times, albeit twice without Keith Moon.

    I had four of their singles, but I didn't really become a fanatic until one summer day at Boy Scout camp. I was taking a merit badge written test and the instructors (older scouts) had a turntable rigged up using extension cords to get power to the tent we were in. They put on the Who's new album, "Tommy" and I was so mesmerized I couldn't concentrate on the test and failed. Went out and got the record when I got back home and never missed a new release until they stopped in '82.

    Re: What are you listening to?

    Just will always remembering sitting on the lawn at Niawanda Park in Tonawanda watching fireworks on the 4th of July listening to Blinded By The Light by the Manfred Mann Band. My childhood wasn't so bad. It's funny how the little things that are special stick with you through the years.

    Re: What are you listening to?

    Saw one concert at Rich Stadium. George Thorogood & the Destroyers - Journey - The Rolling Stones. 1981. Awesome. Was raining. Thorogood said he was going to play until the rain went away. He did it. Journey came out, played about 8 songs and left acting like whiny little divas and got booed off the stage. Then the Stones rocked the house down. Another of life's little happy memories for me.

    The soundtrack of our lives. There's tons of songs that get me flashing to times and people in the past. I can even see the places and faces in my minds eye.

    If any of you get a chance, catch "Springsteen On Broadway". A powerful example of that very thing interlaced with Bruce on acoustic or piano.

    Funny, this last summer my brother and I would go cycling and our goal....Niawanda Park. It's about 10 miles from his house and we would rest watching the river and get a custard at Mississippi Muds before we headed back.
