Bruce Springsteen “New York City Serenade” – Listen

This, as you’ll have noticed, is not a new song.  It is though that rare thing, something we can all agree on as a perfect masterpiece, perhaps the very pinnacle of the output by the man we call The Boss.  Well…in support of full honesty we have to warn those who might actually be new to the song and have particular aversions that it contains saxophone, strings and rock poetry.  Majestically overblown it was the closer to the second album from Springsteen, ‘The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle.

Bruce Springsteen is 71 today – Happy Birthday Bruce!

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
