I am down the Shore this week, so I thought I would choose something by the favorite, Bruce Springsteen. I realize “Girls in Their Summer Clothes” would probably be more appropriate, but it is not one of my favorites. “Fire” on the other hand is one of his best. The staccato guitar is fantastic, exceeded only by some incredible lyrics like these:

Sometimes its like someone took a knife baby
Edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
Through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the
Middle of my head
