I Went...SIRIUS...All The Way Home (again)

(a short jaunt)

"Lucky Town" - Bruce Springsteen / "Lucky Town" (1992)  
Here performing at Stockholm 1993-05-28

There's a reason you find so many of this particular CD in the used bins.  It's Bruce with a new band behind him...not the E. Street.  Most fans didn't take a shine to that idea.  Plus the songs just aren't very memorable.  But man, do I love the title track.  Of all the songs from the album, this one sounds the most like "The Boss" we all love.  On the wet streets getting his hands dirty.  It kicks ass.  I remember seeing him on SNL performing this song with his new guitar man dipping and weaving all over the place sounding terrific and honoring the privilege.  And I appreciated the effort.

"Bad Bad Boy" - Nazareth / "Razamanaz" (1973)

The song is what it is.  It's hilarious.  And it rawks!  Dan McCafferty's vocals will make your throat hurt. Kind of a faceless band, but they know how to jam.  Fun album.

"I’m Actin' Different" - Joe Walsh / "Ordinary Average Guy" (1991)

I remember this song coming on the radio.  And then the song finishing.  But I can't remember a dang thing about it.  I don't remember nothing.  It wasn't unpleasant.  It just didn't..."do it"...for me.


Good stuff.
