Being from New Jersey, I have always been enamored by Bruce Springsteen and his music. To me, his concerts were a family reunion, and he was an unwavering source of good. Also, his music seemed like a video game on expert mode- You knew what you had to do, but everything seemed.....harder.
Knowing that Bruce wrote Hungry Heart with The Ramones in mind, I recorded the song in a way kinda like The Ramones, but more like Radiator Hospital. This was super fun, and lead to a week or so of me tackling his songs in trying to make them more tangible. I tried 4 or 5 different songs, but these two were my best.
No proceeds will go to me but rather, to Council On American-Islamic Relations.
