i wanna be sedated
(updated with another, better video)
Springsteen. Boston. The boyfriend is watching the setlist and says, “Ever heard of a song called, ‘I Wanna Go Out With You’?”
I shake my head no, and go back to watching the game.
15 minutes later, he pauses before saying, “Well, it says here that they just played “I Wanna Be Sedated”.
“It says it right here.”
“Apparently it was a sign request.”
I get an email from Lisa. “if this is true I’m sure I’ll hear you hit the floor from here”
I am having trouble breathing.
“I want an OBJECTIVE SOURCE to come out of that concert RIGHT NOW,” I say. “Why can’t there be someone reporting who actually KNOWS SOMETHING, this night of all nights.”
I check Facebook, Twitter, email. Nothing. At all. Anywhere. I’m getting a setlist report from someone who probably likes Joe Grushecky and I have to wait.
I email Lisa back: “But what if it sucked? That would be worse.”
Except it didn’t.
PLEASE BRUCESPRINGSTEEN.NET PUT THIS ON THE SITE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
And I’m bringing a sign for “Safe European Home” to Philly. With lyrics and chords. We’re getting a Clash song if it kills me, dammit.
I’m not surprised. I’m not surprised. I’m just – OH MY GOD THIS WOULD HAVE STOPPED ME FROM GETTING MY ASS KICKED 30 YEARS AGO, DUDE, if you’d only just owned up back then.
here’s another one:
