In this case it’s Bruce Springsteen, whose 2012 album Wrecking Ball continued a strong run of material that started in the late 2000s. As with its predecessors, Magic and Working On a Dream, I really enjoyed this album upon its release but stopped listening after awhile.
I don’t know if this is the official video or some expertly crafted fan video. It does feature Springsteen himself toward the end. Quality entertainment.
He made it through the Battle Rounds by out-performing Brittany Butler on ‘On Broadway.’ No memory of that one, either.
Miley Cyrus – ‘Wrecking Ball’
Here is another song I came to through the controversial video and radio play. However, getting beyond Miley’s shedding of Hannah Montana and her controversial antics at various appearances, most notably the MTV music awards, the fact of the matter is, at least in my opinion, this is a damn good song.
Continuing a phenomenon I first chronicled in a post on Ben Folds Five’s ‘Smoke,’ my wife has taken to a song to which I hadn’t previously paid much attention.
This time around it’s the title track of Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball. She discovered it in random rotation on her car stereo and then adopted it for her running playlist, enjoying the way its momentum urges her to keep the pace up for just a little while longer.
