The musical gods are with me this week

The gods of music have been kind to me all week.

First, I saw three incredible shows by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, with the last one, Thursday night, incredible beyond words.

Then, while out at happy hour at the Shell on Long Beach Island yesterday, a brief rain shower chased Monte and the All-Stars off the stage before they could butcher Rosalita. What they do to that song should be illegal. Two minutes of raindrops saved me from eight minutes of suffering.

Finally, I was way too tired to go out last night, and I missed out on a pretty good band, Laura Lea & Tripp Fabulous. But I’m happy I missed out on their cover of Mr. Jones by Counting Crows. As much as I like Laura Lea’s voice, that song is awful, brutal, hideous, whiny, irritating and foul beyond saving by anyone.

Thank you, gods of music.

    Mr. Jones is great! You don’t know what you’re talking about…

    What is there not to like about Mr. Jones other than “Maria” is in it! Everybody knows that writing 4 billion songs with “Maria” in it makes her the Boss’ girl!

    I think Maria is only in one recent Bruce song. Mary is the Boss’ girl. As am I. He really wants me, not Patty. He just doesn’t know it yet. 😉

    So far the count is:

    Mary……10 times
    Maria……7 times
    Patty……0 times
    ansky…..0 times
    Sue……..0 times
    Melinda…0 times

    Hang in there you’re tied for third!!!!!!
