If you didn’t understand the Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band experience before this video, you would immediately after.
There are certain Bruce Springsteen songs that may not have changed the world but somehow changed us. You know the ones. These are songs that may not have been the most popular tracks on a record. These songs may not have received much or any radio airplay. These are the songs that for one reason or another found their way into your heart and spoke directly to you. You know the ones!
Another great post by our good friend Mike Macaluso. This time a cover of the Animals “It’s My Life. The Animals were a huge influence on Bruce. When Bruce addressed the 2012 SXSW convention he stated that much of his early content was influenced by The Animals, including the main riff of Badlands, taken from the song “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.
This was a performance where everyone present felt that they were being delivered everything and we all left somehow changed. This experience paved a new path to an old soul. It was a sincere connection, brilliant, honest and untouchable.
Springsteen “The River” performed November 24th 1980 at the Capital Center in Landover, Maryland.
