Sneak Peek: Bruce Springsteen’s Working on a Dream

I feel like I’ve been a little misleading to you, my faithful readers, with my posts so far. For example, I don’t really like Britney Spears that much. And “Together” is the only Janet Jackson song I own.

So let me tell you what I do like: Bruce Springsteen. I love him. Truly, madly, deeply. He represents everything that’s good about America, and is the only thing good about New Jersey. Having Bruce blast at you from the alarm clock makes mornings worth getting up for.

Despite the fact that I’m on vacation and don’t need no stinkin’ alarm clock, I woke up this morning thinking about the Boss. Maybe it’s because of the ad I saw last night for his Super Bowl performance, or because I wake up every morning thinking about Bruce, but either way I got the itch. So I went out and found everything I could about his upcoming album Working on a Dream.

The most exciting thing I found was’s 30-second samples for each of the songs. (Personally, I think 30-second samples are worthless…. but they’re new BRUCE! WOOO!)


Then, I thought maybe I’d share “The Wrestler.” It’s a bonus track on the new album, and was featured in the recently-released film The Wrestler. It’s depressing, but it’s a helluva song.

This video’s been up for a while, but it’s done a great job of getting me really excited for the new album:

My Lucky Day (Live in the Studio)

And the title track from the new record, which was free on iTunes for a while, is available for purchase here. (19 blogpoints to whoever can tell me what “Pepsi points” are.)


Working on a Dream comes out January 27, 2009. Until then, enjoy this.

    I’d give you those blogpoints, but you already won a year’s supply.
