Video Spotlight - "Talk To Me", Live At Virginia Beach



"Beach music!"

Yes, as we reach the apex of the summer, my mind goes back to that wonderful night in April, the last time I was able to see Springsteen live.  This performance of "Talk To Me" was a true highlight of the night, punctuated by Bruce's bizarre magazine rant.  Even though it was the tour premiere of the song, the routine felt so natural that it made "Talk To Me" feel like a concert staple.  Either way, it made me take notice of a song that I hadn't paid much attention to in the past (and, it further supports the popular opinion that The Promise disc two is much superior to disc one).  It's a fun and bouncy song, perfect for those long summer nights.
