"You fall in love with lonely.... you end up that way."
hey that's a good line …..
I look forward to hearing the new one--- I was a HUGE Springsteen fan years ago--I thought his 70"s output was tremendous ! Those albums were incredible.
I fell out of favor with him when he decided to become Woody Guthrie......
And definitely stopped listening when he decided to become the voice of the people and downtrodden........his politics ruined the music for me.
That being said, many of his albums since then have had great cuts, but I have found it hard to stomach an entire albums worth
I would love to see him just make music again for the FUN of it....
Listening to "Hello Sunshine" and struck by how much it harkens back to countrypolitan music of the 1970s with touches of Glen Campbell and Charlie Rich in the vocals and musical vibe. Springsteen's voice, must admit, sounds good.
I think it's more about him recognizing the futility of wallowing in despair, getting too comfortable with the isolation, and trying to find moments of happiness.Quote
seems to be song about A guy that has been heartbroken on many occasions to the point of depression that he just wants to be alone and finds himself in a deep depression and keeps searching for that window of light.
By title you would think it is a happy-go lucky song. Of course it's not. The singing and orchestra combo with steel guitar and piano is strikingly beautiful. Bruce sings remarkably on this song.
Yes it has a hint of "Everybody's Talkin" and Glen Campbell but this is a different song that is also lyrically perfect and impacts all of us in one way or another.
Re RollingFreak's comment on my comment, I had no idea Springsteen noted he was looking at a Glen Campbell/Jimmy Webb type thing. Interesting. I can only wonder now how the rest of the album will sound.
