Power Lines

i seem to choose how i like songs based on if there is a "power line" in it or not. traditionally i like heavy metal, rock, or alternative- but i have my huge exceptions when it comes to songs i like lyrics of. i am such a sentimental sap, i need to hear certain things at certain times of my life ( like a soundtrack i suppose) so those songs will resonate with me big time.

i would get into the songs that do it for me, but i don't think i would have the room!

i will share what i consider to be a "power line" though...

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN  I'm on Fire :

" some times it feels like someone took a knife baby, edgy and dull and cut a six inch valley through the middle of my soul. at night i wake up with my sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head".

don't believe me? go listen to it, it might do something for ya...

You held me captive from the moment I spied your title, I adore your verbiage in this piece....:)

One of my favorites.



There's a guy named "Cousin Cole" that remixed it and added a sortof techno beat. It's really cool too if you can tolerate remixes.

never been a huge springsteen fan but i respect his ablity to form great word pictures..and this is one of my favs from him..

i was just a lil girl in the 80's (depending on exactly when it came out...) so i plead innocence?? lol

We all noticed those lyrics when the song first came out back in the 80's. An allusion to wet dreams.....

nope. won't do it. Hate him. always have. like you though. :D

i'm not his biggest fan, but the words just resonated with me. they still do. chills everytime :)

cool lyrics yes - but I hate springsteen.
