The Red Button

Cruel Girl why you gotta treat me like a fool girl... The Red Button - Cruel Girl

I recently discovered this nugget from the The Red Button, an American pop band featuring well known song writer Seth Swirsky and Mike Ruekberg. This song was featured on Little Steven's Underground Garage.  From 2007, not 1967, this is Cruel Girl.

Greetings From Louisville, KY

Together we moved like spirits in the night (all night), in the night (all night)... Bruce Springsteen - Spirits in the Night

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played a three hour show in Louisville, KY saturday night at the KFC Yum! Center.  The show was classic Springsteen, who seemed to be in a really good spirit.  He was refreshlingly non-political and just focused on making it a fun night for all.

The music came from mainly his most recent album Wrecking Ball, while culling from 70's and 80's classics Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ thru Born in the U.S.A. and also 2002's The Rising.
Highlights included: (1) Hungry Heart, which included the audience sing along as well as Springsteen body surfing on the crowd from stage to main stage (2) Tenth Avenue Freeze Out with a fitting tribute to Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici; (3) Growing Up with help from an excited teenage boy (4) Waitin' On a Sunny Day with a sing along with three young boys and (5) The River, Rosalita, She's the One, Born To Run, Dancing in the Dark, Badlands, etc...

All in all, an excellent show; Bruce made the show fun for all who attended.

Down The River to the Wrecking Ball

Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound; I can feel my heart begin to pound... Bruce Springsteen - No Surrender

I am going to see Bruce Springsteen at the YUM Center in Louisville, KY this weekend.  This will be my 14th Springsteen concert.  It all started in 1980 on The River Tour.  After that show I was hooked!!  Since that time I collected all his music and up until his recent 2 tours, I had seed them all; failing to see him only on the Seeger Sessions and Working On a Dream Tours, in which he came nowhere near my town.  I have seen Bruce in 2 states and 4 different venues.  Here's the list:

  • 1980 - The River Tour (1 show)
  • 1984 - Born in the U.S.A. Tour (3 shows)
  • 1988 - Tunnel of Love Tour (1 show)
  • 1992 - Human Touch/Lucky Town Tour (1 show)
  • 1996 - The Ghost of Tom Joad Solo Tour (1 show)
  • 2000 - The Reunion Tour (2 shows)
