Wow. Springsteen and the band went on Fallon last night, played the title track off the new album and caught fire. This is the most at home the band has appeared with new material in a long time. I can’t wait for the D.C. show. (I’ve found a taker for the New Jersey tickets.) This performance has me hoping we end up very close to the floor’s front. This song didn’t do much for me when it appeared near the end of the last tour, an ’09 tribute to the old Giants Stadium. But reworked some sonically, Wrecking Ball may be among my favorites off the new album.
I also think the title and tone are a good fit. It’s not the best song title I’ve heard this week. Winning that competition is Zoe Muth’s If I Can’t Trust You With a Quarter (How Can I Trust You With My Heart?). Thanks, No Depression, for that video introduction. But Wrecking Ball hits hard.
