On the Today show, a Bruce Springsteen performance! I don't often listen to Springsteen these days, but back in the day I was a fanatical Bruce fan. Don't tell my mother, but I camped out in line for tickets, thumbed to shows (ok, it was a looong time ago, and yes, i did the same for dead shows). I have occasionally scheduled a business trip around a concert, truth be told. Hearing his music this morning made me smile-it's so much a part of my teens and early twenties. My roommates and I were famous for blasting springsteen, sinatra and elvis at all hours. We had a huge collection of bootleg music (remember that--Trading cassette tapes of bad quality recordings?).
Now, listening to Bruce, I suddenly feel like I should be drinking beer from a plastic cup and dancing myself hot and sweating in a dive bar at the shore..
I gotta download a few more bruce songs!!!!!!
