Sparks Fly On E Street: Bruce Springsteen, "I'm A Rocker" (1980)

Share this:

“I’m A Rocker” definitely lands on the light-hearted and fun side of The River. Nothin’ fancy here. It’s just Bruce hammering out the Rocker-As-Superhero story to his lady friend, while a wall of guitar, organ, and sax set up an enormous clatter.

I wanted to show a video from the River tour, because the organ sound tended to amp up the fun with the Farfisa cheese…but I picked this one from 2002 because, well, it’s fun to see Bruce bashing his foot on the piano.
