An excellent use of the term “Backstreets” as used in American suburbs | unclassified tempo map of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band 1970s song

There is an enthusiasm throughout that song that though Bruce and his love interest aren’t what we would call today “rich”, life was pretty damn good driving around freely on hidden backstreets at night just being with people you liked.

Yesterday the writers at the Young and the Restless used the American suburb term “backstreets” in a way Bruce Springsteen did when he wrote about the streets of New Jersey.

The best scene in the movie according to the late Roger Ebert was the theme where Rocky proves he has the fortitude not not quit and *goes the distance*.  That great scene simply doesn’t work without a piece of music so perfect that Stallone cried when he heard it, knowing it was the clinching element to make a movie of inspiration, enthusiasm and power.

the zone | America |”Today’s The Day” |UNCLASSIFIED tempo map

I had liked the song and heard it before – to the point that when I went to breakfast I could feel the song more than the fear or anything else. And I was in what we all now call “THE ZONE.

The song Today’s The Day is my secret song in regard to the entire reason I discovered what I did.

The summer this song was popular, I was at a summer “sleep away” camp, and unlike when I was 9 years old and had gone to a sleep-away camp where 4 of my cousins were also going, two of them familiar with the ropes.

When I was ten I spent the summer at a summer camp in Connecticut in an atmosphere with which I was unfamiliar. Most other campers were from New England private schools, where I am from, like my wife and my parents , from New Jersey public school.

The camp and being homesick made me uncomfortable more than I ever would have admitted at a *tough* ten year old (!) would ever admit. The truth was I was uncomfortable meeting a couple of hundred new kids, no one close to me.

One day my fear ended. It happened because this song was playing on my clock radio alarm as I woke up. I had liked the song and heard it before – to the point that when I went to breakfast I could feel the song more than the fear or anything else. And I was in what we all now call “THE ZONE.” The day was perfect, I never hesitated, I tried to get nervous and I couldn’t, I just couldn’t miss. I remember telling myself: but for the song in morning, the whole summer would have been different. If I get older and no one has figured out how to use the power of matching an individual’s “zone” with a song that fit in that zone, I would need to try to do something myself.

“I bought a toothbrush, some some toothpaste, a flannel for my face” TEMPTED, Squeeze, Unclassified tempo map

It was the first song I heard when I arrived at my college in 1981, and indeed, leaving my little town of Harrington Park behind I felt I had made a mistake, I always loved the part of the song where Squeeze’s lead singer sings what I wanted in November 1981 when he sings the classic, “I said to my reflection, ‘let’s get out of this place!’.

“Tempted” plays at a speed where one usually finds songs filled with enthusiasm.
