How Bruce Springsteen Helped Me Face My Childhood Bullies

Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Sarah recently wrote a story for Consequence Of Sound’s Aux.Out section about how she learned to love a post-irony music world via Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness At The Edge Of Town.

There is, to be fair, a lot more to it than just shunting off old Beck songs. In the story, and in real life, she confronted some school bullies from her past.

The end result: singing “Badlands” at the top of her lungs.

My latest “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

This week we learned how long it took Bruce Springsteen to get his just rewards, revisited Jim Morrison getting arrested onstage and Ray Charles getting strangled onstage (seriously, he didn’t see it coming).

To learn more about these things and to read a bunch of other stuff that made music history, click here.

11 Morbid Car Crash Songs

Car Crash Songs

One of the many songs that Sarah slays the old men with at karaoke is The Shangri-Las “Leader Of The Pack,” a tragic tale of love gone wrong by way of motorcycle accident.

Because that sort of morbidity is fundamentally appealing to her, Sarah found 10 other really sad musically driving tales and turned them into a list for Spinner.

To relive the harrowing moments from Meat Loaf, Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen and more, just click here.

This Week In Music History — June 3 – 9

Bruce Springsteen

My “This Week In Music History” feature went out again this week over at the Spinner.

The Risky Fuel household has become all turned around on Bruce Springsteen‘s Born In The U.S.A. album in recent months and it just so happened that the anniversary of this record’s release was this week. 2 Live Crew, on the other hand, were banned in the U.S.A., when a judge declared them obscene (don’t worry, it mostly made them more popular). Oh, and remember when Left Eye from TLC burned down Andre Rison’s house? Yeah.
