Springsteen Video of the Week - I'm Goin' Down


 
Who doesn't love a good Bruce tale?  While the picture quality is very poor in this video, the stoy Bruce provides highly makes up for it.  Normally, in his extended speeches before songs, Springsteen will turn to his childhood and upbringing for inspiration.  However, in this video, he takes a more comedic route.  I'm always leary when a musician tries his hand at comedy, as the laughs often are strained or groaned.  However, the little speech before "I'm Going Down" is simple, relatable, and chuckle-inducing.  Like Bruce, I'll dedicate this post to all you lovers out there.
