Springsteen's "Magic"al titles
So, the track list has been released for the upcoming Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band album due out this fall. It will be titled Magic. Judgving from the song titles, it should be classic. There are a couple clunkers ("I'll Work For Your Love"?), but for the most part they are classic Bruce. "Radio Nowhere" sounds like a companion to that other media wasteland cut, "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)." "Last to Die" sounds like a sequel to "Tougher Than the Rest." "Gypsy Biker" sounds like something out of the ragged glory of early E-Street. Any time you mix gypsies and bikers you can't go wrong. Hopefully Crazy Davey and the Magic Rat make cameos. Finally, "Devil's Arcade." Wow. That sounds like a powerful blend of the outlook on "Devils and Dust" with a rambshackle mix of the wildest imagery. I can't wait.
