Gospel Telecaster

May 2, 2008

Here’s the song that turned me around.  I used to be kind of neutral toward Bruce Springsteen.  I thought he was overrated and overhyped, but undeniably talented.

Then I heard this song and I “got it.”  Bruce is the man.  He has stated that there is a common thread between front porch music, whorehouse music, field music, bar room music and church music.  Here he bridges the gap with a proclamation of hope and good news.

I dare anyone else to write a gospel song this good, this effective, this chillbump-inducing.

That’s a Fender Custom Shop Telecaster with Joe Barden pickups.  Anyone who feels like buying me one just like it can feel free to indicate so in the comments or by email.
