Human Touch

Rick Springfield

As you can probably tell by now, I have a bit of a man-crush on Rick Springfield. (In the interest of full disclosure I was briefly very enthusiastic about the term "Bromance" to mean "man-crush," however it has been hijacked by some "reality" TV show in MTV, so I will not be using it.) In fact I think he is the most frequently present artist on the playlist. (I am not willing to research this claim.)

I'd like to, if I may, try to summarize the plot of the video to this song:

In the Year 1986, the world was under threat of becoming dangerously awesome due to Rick Springfield's music. In the interests of preserving humanity he was frozen on the I.S.S. Jessie's Girl, until such time as his awesomeness became necessary. In 2016, the computer (apparently named Sally), awoke Rick to help save the world. Awesomeness had reached an all time low (I'm pretty sure the problem was somehow related to the Sub-Prime Mortgage Crisis). The world needed Captain Springfield and his crew. So, they valiantly awoke from their slumber and performed a dance number, sure to keep the world awesome for at least another 30 years. Then as radiation levels got too high, they return to their cryogenic chambers to await the next deficiency in awesomeness...does that sound right?



This ain't a Bromance...

...sounds more like an episode of Mystery Science Fiction Theater 3000!!!

Another tune with the same title, dead sexy, too:

Now...

Now I love Rick Springfield as much as the next guy...but he's not in Bruce's category...

Good on ya

Well played.

speaking of the Boss

Just read a review of "Working on a Dream". The reviewer compares Mr. Springsteen's latest disc, which will be released next week, to the Beatles "White Album". Interesting. Also, there's a nice tribute to Danny Federici; his son plays accordian on one of the tracks.
