Watch a Young Bruce Springsteen Play Songs That Were Left Off 'Darkness on the Edge of Town'

Watch a Young Bruce Springsteen Play Songs That Were Left Off 'Darkness on the Edge of Town' | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

On Sept. 20, 1978, Springsteen played one of the greatest shows of his long career. Watch it all right here. On this night, the Capitol Theatre clapped and whooped along, drunk on Springsteen’s charisma and Garry Tallent’s pouncing bass line. Watch the Boss freeze the room at the 1:47 mark with a full 20-second pause that all but unhinges the fans from the space-time continuum, before dropping back in with “Romeo and Juliet…”


 “Because the Night” was another love song Springsteen had written for Darkness on the Edge of Town and ultimately decided not to include on the album. Meanwhile, in an adjacent studio at the Record Plant in New York City, Patti Smith was working on her new album with producer Jimmy Iovine. Iovine was also working as an engineer with Springsteen, and Springsteen wound up giving the song to Smith, who changed some of the lyrics but kept the structure. Her “Because the Night” became the lead single from 1978’s Easter and reached No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart—the biggest hit of Smith’s career..

Watch Eddie Vedder Play "Corduroy" Outside Wrigley Field With Some Random Buskers

Watch Eddie Vedder Play "Corduroy" Outside Wrigley Field With Some Random Buskers | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

The guy in the shorts and the Cubs hat is no ordinary fan. Eddie Vedder stumbled onto a couple of street musicians after Friday night’s game at Wrigley Field and decided to join them for some impromptu Pearl Jam, er, jams. According to a report in ChiCity Sports via Rolling Stone, Vedder picked up a guitar and started playing Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy” with the drummer who was sitting there. From the look of the video, it appears most of the fans and other passersby didn’t realize that the guy in the shorts and the Cubs cap playing Pearl Jam songs was actually Eddie Vedder. And why would they?

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Oasis - "Talk Tonight"

"Talk Tonight" is a song written by the band's lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was released as a B-Side on the UK #1 single "Some Might Say"along with "Acquiesce" and "Headshrinker" and appears on the B-side compilation album, The Masterplan. "Talk Tonight" is one of many acoustic B-side tracks sung by Noel, and was at the time, the most vulnerable song he had ever attempted. It was inspired by the near-breakup of the band in Los Angeles in autumn 1994, when Noel walked out without telling anyone and headed for San Francisco.
