Song Spotlight: "Wonderland" by Nils Lofgren


A good friend of the blog named Tom recently tipped us off to the song “Wonderland” by Nils Lofgren. The song is off his album of the same name from 1983. It’s a lovely track that has a real Paul Simon feel to it. The original album isn’t on iTunes, but you can also hear Wonderland on the album Nils Lofgren: Ultimate Collection.

We’ve highlighted Nils Lofgren’s solo performances in the past, and comparing this song with “Miss You C”, you can see that Nils’ voice has gotten even gruffer than Bruce’s has over the years. There’s also a live acoustic version of "Wonderland" available on his live album which strikes me as even better than the studio version. Both are included below for your listening pleasure.
