One of the Boss' most annoying. Perhaps second only to the awful "Pink Cadillac."

What? Are you implying that a multi-millionaire rock star isn't in touch with the common working man? Impossible!
Bruce is what you might call a \"nervous singer\" in that he can never let more that 4 or 8 bars go without singing. It\'s as if he can\'t stand \"silences\" during a song.

isn't it funny how appropriate bruce springsteens initials are b.s. :lol: :lol:

A voice built for the slapback reverb. :cool:
Saw Bruce do this at the ACC in Toronto a few years back: it came right after \"Out in the Street\" and \"10th avenue freezeout\" - highlight of the show.

LOVE IT!!!!
