    really liked this song the first time I heard it. Although I think its one of those that's best without the video or any distraction.



    Who can understand the final words of the chorus without googling the lyrics?

The Boss is very successful at tapping into a certain section, emotion and spirit in american working class society.
    Apparently Bruce began to struggle with his connection to working class life by the mid-80s, when he had become fabulously wealthy. He began to write some songs about his angst, when he was stopped by some wise counsel from longtime friend Steve Van Zandt. Little Steven said "people don't want you to write about your life, they want you to write about theirs".

    Not sure if there are any Drum and Bugle Corps followers here, but this is sure to get the attention of any Brass enthusiast. Just mind-blowing power behind these horns.

    P.S. Beware headphone users.

    Is that because the salary isn't adequate?

    It sounded exactly like that, material included (though he performed the songs separately). He just has one of those special voices.

    Beautiful. Glad you're one of those who gets it. If his show was anything like the performance you posted it had to be extraordinary. Maybe the diff between seeing acoustic Neil Young and seeing him with Crazy Horse.

    One for S2

    Guess who I got to see perform tonight mate? His first ever show in Australia. he was jet lagged & rambled a bit here & there, but the voice was stunning. it wasn't the full 'Lift to Experience' deal, but it was still worth going out on a Tuesday evening to see. Went with a friend and he love it too.

    Sounded a lot like this.
