Music Monday-Bruce Springsteen "Jungleland & Rosalita"

Originally, I had another song lined up for today's Music Monday.  However, with the sad news yesterday of the passing of the Big Man, Clarence Clemons from a stroke at the age of 69, I felt it appropriate to pay tribute to Clemons by picking a Bruce Springsteen tune.  Clemons was an integral member of Springsteen's E Street Band.  His saxophone playing added a signature tonality to the Springsteen sound.  While I am sure Springsteen would have been successful no matter what, I believe that Clemons and the rest of the original E Street Band spurred the Boss to greater success.  Here is the Big Man and the Boss at their best with "Jungleland".  RIP Clarence.

And one more just for fun, "Rosalita"

  4. Well, those made me feel plumb stupid. For both songs are very familiar to me, but if you would have asked me what their names were beforehand, I couldn't have told you. Of course, that could also be another hint that I getting older by the minute. For I was quite shocked to hear that Clarence Clemons was 69.

  5. great song for the week!
