    I just had to make mention of this Springsteen wanna be...

    John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. From top to bottom, this song just WREAKS of The Boss.

    Or does it just wreak?



    This song reminds me of a very particular and GREAT time on my life so I'm always torn about how I should feel about it. While I see it as a rip-off, I must acknowledge that I would probably accept it had it been a Springsteen tune on the Born In the USA album that was released around the same time.

    What do you guys think? Get rid of it or get over it?

    I like that tune, always have, and I say that as someone who is NOT a fan of most of Springsteen's work, but I can see how someone might make a connection to On The Dark Side to the Born in the USA album. One thing of note, On the Dark Side (as well as the entire Eddie and the Cruisers soundtrack) came out about nine months before Born in the USA did.

    Perhaps it was "the boss" that was copying John Cafferty. :heheh:

    Eddie And The Cruisers was a movie that was set in New Jersey at the Jersey Shore. The whole movie has glimpses of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

    Over 50 posts, and no one mentions these?

    For shame.

    I like the first one quite a bit (hated it when it was first out) and the second one reminds me of Futurama.

    I had only heard this song once, on a radio station out of Toronto, Ontario and loved it.

    The next time I heard it was about 5 years later, which is how long it took me to find out who the band was, what the song title was, and actually find a copy of the album (on CD).
