me and her we had us some fun.

Speaking of Americana, I have been ridiculously obsessed with the Bruce Springsteen record Nebraska recently, but that album kind of exists on the opposite end of the spectrum from Bob Seger. There's really nothing cheesy about Nebraska at all (even though Bruce can lay on the schmaltz from time to time,) it is just a beautiful, haunting record. As much as I enjoy the rocking E Street Band songs like Born To Run, I prefer these stripped-down tunes about downtrodden midwestern Americans attempting to carve out a living, sometimes on the wrong side of the law.
