*New Music* My Version of Bruce Springsteen’s “Where the Bands Are”

Today’s new music is Bruce Springsteen’s unabashedly nostalgic paean to listening to bands and playing in bands. This is my version of “Where the Bands Are”. Play this one loud! 🙂
228. E Street Band

Where the Bands Are

I hear the guitars ringin’ out
Ringin’ out down Union Street
I hear the lead singer shoutin’ out, girl
I wanna be a slave to the beat
Yeah, tonight I wanna break my chains
Somebody break my heart
Somebody shake my brains
Downtown there’s something that I wanna hear
There’s a sound, little girl, keeps ringing in my ear

I wanna be where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are
Where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are

I get off from work and I grab something to eat
I turn the corner and I drive down your street
Little gray houses darling looks like nowhere
But hey I know you’re hiding in there
Come on out for just a little while
You know that heart of stone, girl
It just ain’t your style
Tonight I wanna feel the beat of the crowd
And when I tell you that I love you
I wanna have to shout it out loud
Shout it out loud
Shout it out loud

I wanna be where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are
Where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are

I hear the guitars ringin’ out again
Ringin’ on down Union Street
I hear the lead singer shoutin’ out and girl
I wanna be a slave to the beat
And I want something that’ll break my chains
Something to break my heart
Something to shake my brains
There’s a rocker’s special on tonight
So meet me on down
‘Neath the neon lights

I wanna be where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are
Where the bands are
I wanna be where the bands are
