I hope it’s something quiet and minor and peaceful and slow.

How much do these guys want to be Bruce, suck at being Bruce, but are still hopelessly delightful? A lot. It’s not Born to Run, and it’s not Born in the USA, but it certainly is New Jersey. And it’s not like anyone will ever come close to touching Bruce anyway. Arcade Fire, I’m looking at you.

  1. yeah, I love this album. Especially this song. I feel like people who are supposed to know better aren’t supposed to like it, but I don’t care. It’s great. But I also like the Sam’s Town album by the Killers.

    I don’t think TGA wants to be Bruce…I just think they unapologetically wear him on their sleeves. But it’s not just Bruce, it’s the whole “high top sneakers and sailor tattoos” thing…somehow, something you’d think people born in the 70 and 80s can only know is some ironic way comes out very sincere, uplifting, and, as you say, delightful.
