She's The One

I was reminded this afternoon of what an amazing writer and performer Bruce Springsteen is. 

This may be my favorite song off "Born to Run" for reasons that include the Bo-Diddley beat, the forward rush, the glorious chiming in the first bars, the cheeky change-ups in the four-chord repetition at the end (how much fun can you have? Ask the man who plugged triplets into the chord pattern), and the grand and mountainous romanticism of the words. I love the version on "Born to Run," but I just ran into this version on YouTube and it is fantastic. Despite the poor video quality, you can see what an incredible live performance the band puts on. (For another thing, she said shallowly, both Bruce and Little Stephen were, at this point, incredibly attractive. To me, at least.)

So, yeah. Here, have this.
