a parody of "Hungry Heart" by Bruce Springsteen
Sorry, I had to edit out a mistake on the recording and re-upload it to soundclick. I was shocked and saddened to find out that Malcolm Higgins - one of's most talented parody lyricists had passed away. As a tribute to him, I recorded some of the songs that he wrote. I hope that these songs go to #1 on Soundclick and Malcolm can look down from the heavens and smile.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Shut Out The Light - Single B-Side - 1984"
The Lyrics:
Well deep in a dark forest, a forest filled with rain. Beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name. In the cold black water Johnson Lineir stands.
This song is from Tracks, which isn't a very popular album, but has all of the songs Bruce didn't think would work out in an album. He later made 18 Tracks, which were 18 songs from Tracks that he considered the best. Bruce says "beyond a stretch of Maryland pines there's a river without a name". He is probably talking about somewhere near the ocean, since pines are mainly near the shore. This also isn't just a few pines, it's a whole forest of them "filled with rain". This character known as Johnson Lineir is a Vietnam veteran and is not on the edge of town, but really he is within himself. This B-Side was paired up with Bruce's A-Side of Born in the U.S.A, since they are both about Vietnam veterans and their stories. All of Bruce's songs have a story to tell, but Shut Out The Light is one of his true hidden gems.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Born In the U.S.A. (album)"
the album cover got criticism from some pundits because the picture focuses on Bruce's jeans - IOW, the picture zeros in on his fanny. Also because Bruce is standing in front of a giant U.S. flag (and he's facing it, we only see him from the rear), some nimrods suggested that he was taking a whizz on Old Glory. Just because you were born in the U.S.A. doesn't mean you have any sence.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Born In the U.S.A. "
That iconic album came out in 1984, like most albums at the time in LP and cassette form. However, a new format was slowly gaining ground. Japanese sonic engineers had been experimenting with sound/music 'compression' onto small encoded disks that get read by laser beams. The audio is encoded as a series of zeros and ones on a digital format and laser beam 'reads' this and you get better sonic clarity than anywhere else. That's right, it's the Compact Digital Disk. They first came out in 1981 and the following year became more available for popular artists. Some acts like Stevie Wonder and ELO also were starting to use digital tape recordings for even better quality. At first all 'CDs' were manufactured in Japan. Makes sence since the CD was invented by Japanese sonic engineers. Soon enough the first CD pressing plant opened up in America as the market widened. The first album to be manufactured in an American CD plant ironically enough 'Born In the U.S.A.' by Bruce Springsteen. That's right folks, the first US CD format issues of 'Born In the U.S.A.' were truly BORN IN THE U.S.A. and were not imported from Japanese factories like all the previous titles on CD. This was a historic first.

Music With a Warning Label:

"Devils And Dust"
There's the track "Reno" which is a story about someone who visits a flophouse in Reno. The hooker names her prices for certain sex acts ( you pay more to put it "up the *ss"). Then there's a reference to fellatio (maybe). In either case there's no "Parental Advisory" emblem on the CD but on the back cover there is a brief warning statement that says there's "adult content".
