BLINDED BY THE LIGHT

Live 22 Nov 2009 version


[Spoken intro to Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. album performance:]

Good evening and thank you for filling these seats tonight! We've had a great, great, great couple of years -- we started in October 2007, the Magic record, and uh, really it's been just about the best time in, uh, our band's work life, and I want... Thank you for supporting our new music, our old music, our tours. As we got towards the end of the tour, we're trying to think of things we could do that would make our last nights special for our fans and for us, so we started to play our albums, and uh, of course we played Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Born To Run, we played the Wild and the Innocent, we played The River... but tonight! One time only! This was the miracle. (laughs) This was the record that took everything from way below zero to... one! And uh, big, big, big moment, big time. Um, hard to believe, but there was a guy at CBS Records named John Hammond, one of the great legends of uh, the then, the music production, who uh, invited me and my friend in straight off the streets of New York after my pal did what a lot of what must have been incredible talking (laughs), and uh, these were some of the songs we played that day as I sat across his desk, with just my acoustic guitar. So tonight, I'm gonna dedicate this to the man who got me in the door; Mike Appel's here tonight -- Mike, this is for you!

[BLINDED BY THE LIGHT:]

Ready, Nils?
We've never done it! I hope we can do it!
Go ahead
One, two, one two three four


Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground
Hey!
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
Some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
Now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot, throws his lover in the sand
Some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers, "Daddy's within earshot, save the buckshot, turn up the band"

And she was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tight, she'll make it alright

Some brimstone baritone anti-cyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
He says, "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in the funny bone, that's where they expect it least"
Some new-mown chaperone is standin' in the corner all alone watchin' the young girls dance
Some fresh-sown moonstone was messin' with his frozen zone to remind him of the feeling of romance

Yeah, he was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
He got down but she never got tight, he's gonna make it alright

Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
She said, "I'll turn you on sonny, to something strong if you'll play that song with the funky break"
And Go-cart Mozart was checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
And little Early-Pearly came by in her curly-wurly, asked me if I needed a ride
Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent some dude with a calling card, says, "Do what you like, don't do it here"
I jumped up, turned around, spit in the air, fell on the ground
Asked him which was the way back home
He said, "Take a right at the light, keep goin' straight until night, and then, boys, you're on your own"
Go!

In Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a side car hummin' a lunar tune
Yeah, and the avatar said, "Blow the bar but first, first remove the cookie jar!
Teach those boys to laugh too soon"
Some kidnapped handicap was complainin' that he caught the clap on some mousetrap he bought last night
Well, I unsnapped his skull cap, between his ears I saw a gap and figured he'd be all right

He was just blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Whoa, but mama that's where the fun is
Ooh, yeah
(I was blinded) I was blinded
(I was blinded) I was blinded
(I was blinded) I was blinded
(I was blinded) I was blinded
I was blinded, I was blinded
I was blinded, I was blinded
I was blinded, I was blinded
I was blinded, I was blinded
I was blinded, I was blinded
I was blinded

Official Live Downloads

Prior to the High Hopes Tour, Bruce Springsteen's management announced a new service allowing fans to download concert recordings approximately 48 hours after each show. The initial plan required fans to purchase a special USB wristband, which could then be used to download a single High Hopes Tour show of the purchaser's choice and also functions as a regular reusable USB flash drive. The wristband, which could be purchased online or at the concert venue, was priced at $40. Following some negative response from fans over the high cost for the wristband, Springsteen's management subsequently announced a separate cheaper option for purchasing shows directly, without the need for the wristband. The shows were available for purchase and download via Live Nation, Bruce Springsteen's concert promoter, priced at $9.99 for MP3 and $14.99 for FLAC. Audio recordings for 31 of the 34 High Hopes Tour dates (all except 16 Feb 2014, 06 Apr 2014, and 03 May 2014) were released as such and they were available until 30 Jun 2014.

On 17 Nov 2014, Live.BruceSpringsteen.net was launched. It's a new addition to the official website, serving as an online store offering high-quality live concert recordings as well as high-resolution digital releases of Springsteen's album catalog. The download store is powered by Nugs.net in cooperation with Columbia Records. Audio recordings for 30 of the 34 High Hopes Tour dates (all except 16 Feb 2014, 06 Apr 2014, 03 May 2014, and 18 May 2014) were re-released on the new download store in multiple formats, including MP3, lossless CD-quality FLAC or ALAC, and 24-bit HD FLAC or ALAC, as well as audio CD-R with custom artwork.
