30 Day Song Challenge - The Sequel: Day 01

The folks who brought us the 30 Day Song Challenge a few years ago (I did it on Facebook but never got round to copying it over to EKN) have launched a follow-up, imaginatively named 30 Day Song Challenge - The Sequel. So without more ado, here is Day 01.

Day 01 – a song you like from a band you don't like

Took me a while to think of a band I really didn't like but in whose output I could find something worthwhile (so not U2 then....). I don't like Bruce Springsteen. However, I like this number inordinately. Isn't life strange? Perhaps it's because he actually bothers to sing rather than shouting. I mean, I love Dancing In The Dark as a song, but I think Bruce utterly ruins it by turning it into a shouty anthem for drunken pogoing. This one, he doesn't ruin, which fills me with even more contempt, because he can sing sensitively: he just doesn't usually make the effort.
