Text “Children’s Song”:

Diamond saddle, ruby eye
Someone’s got a rocking horse that they ride
Ride the tangled river down to the sea
Ride that river and then come on home to me
‘Cause, oh my little ones, you gotta learn to walk before you run
First step’s hard, the rest will come
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time

There’s gold in the river, silver in the hills
Some cups will empty, some cups will fill
Sometimes you’ll be standing tall and free
Sometimes you’ll be praying down on your knees

But, oh my little ones, you gotta learn to walk before you run
First step’s hard, the rest will come
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time

Birds are singing, the clock strikes noon
You sit and dream ‘neath the skin of the moon
You wish upon some distant star
‘Till you find out who you are

One of these mornings, a day will come
All your riding will be done
All the horses that once rode to your command
They’ll speak a language you no longer understand

But, oh my little ones, you gotta learn to walk before you run
First step’s hard, the rest will come
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time

You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time
Time, time, time
Time, time, time
You’ve got time, time, time
Time, time, time

Das Rolling Stone Magazine schreibt:

When Patti Scialfa was asked to contribute a song to Every Mother Counts (Starcon), a compilation CD that will raise money to help improve child and maternal health in developing countries, she was stumped. Luckily her husband, Bruce Springsteen, had an idea.”He reminded me of this song I wrote when our kids were really little,” Scialfa recalls. “I was a little ambivalent about it — I felt that, vocally, it wasn’t in my wheelhouse — so I always just put it off.”

Update: 7. Dezember ’10: Bruce Springsteen Live in Asbury Park, NJ

Bruce Springsteen wird mit seiner E Street Band am Dienstag Nachmittag (7. Dezember 2010 – gegen 15.00 Uhr Ortszeit) in Asbury Park, NJ auftreten, um einige Fans mit Songs des neuen Albums “The Promise” zu erfreuen. Das Mini-Konzert im “Carousel House” wird mitgefilmt und wird in naher Zukunft auf der Homepage des Künstler BruceSpringsteen.net zu sehen sein.


Bühnenaufbau – 7. Dezember 2010

Die amerikanische Fanseite Backstreets.com verschickte am Freitag (3. Dezember 2010) folgende Nachricht an seine Mitglieder:

It’s all cold down along the beach…
The wind’s whippin’ down the boardwalk…

And if you don’t mind braving that kind of weather, we want to give you a chance to be there when Bruce Springsteen does a video shoot on the Jersey Shore next week!

Extra! Extra!
On Tuesday, December 7, Bruce will be convening the E Street Band on the Jersey Shore to play tracks from The Promise for a special future webcast. And unlike the Darkness ’09 film, they don’t want to play to nobody… so we’ve got the chance to send a small number of fans to be extras for the filming.

Bear in mind, this won’t be a concert, exactly — it’s a shoot, with all the stops and starts that usually entails. And it’s likely gonna be a cold, windy December afternoon, not in the cozy confines of previous Shore venues like the Paramount Theatre or Convention Hall. But it’ll also be a unique opportunity to see Bruce and the Band in action and up close, working up performance debuts of songs from The Promise, and to be part of the small crowd in an intimate space when they capture it on film.
We’ll be selecting a handful of fans by random drawing to be part of the audience, each able to bring one guest. To enter the drawing, all you need to do is send us an email (see details below). Please only enter IF:

  • You’re able to get yourself and your guest to the Jersey Shore on Tuesday, December 7, in the mid-afternoon.
  • You’re sure you can be there — we want to get as many fans in as possible and may not be able to adjust for no-shows.
  • You can make it on short notice — all winners may not be notified until late Monday evening.
  • You can stand the weather!

If that’s you and you’d like to enter for a chance to be there, please send an email to thepromise@backstreets.com with the following information.

For the subject line, type the name of the musician (a longtime Jackson Browne associate) who played violin on The Promise’s version of “Racing in the Street.”

In the body of the email, include your name and address (as it appears on your picture ID), as well as your cell phone (or other contact number) and preferred email address, for any and all notifications about Tuesday.

Entries must be received by Sunday, December 5, at 2 p.m. ET to be eligible for the drawing. One entry per email address, please. Those selected to attend (plus one guest) will be contacted by email as soon as possible (but again, it could be up to Monday night) with full details. We’ll post a notice on the News page to let you know when all notifications have gone out.

Good luck, we’ll hope to see you there!

“Stand Up for Heroes 2010” – mit Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen spielte gestern auf der “Stand Up for Heroes” Benefizgala im New Yorker “Beacon Theatre” drei Songs. Begleitet von der Max Weinberg Big Band und Roy Bittan performte er vor ausverkauftem Haus “Open All Night” und “Kitty’s Back”. Als Zugabe gab der “Boss” mit Ehefrau Patti Scialfa “If I Should Fall Behind” zum Besten.

Im Anschluss wurde Bruce Springsteens Gitarre für 140.000  versteigert.

Die Einnahmen werden der “Bob Woodruff Foundation” gestiftet. Die gemeinnützige Organisation unterstützt Menschen, die in Kriegen verletzt wurden.

Showbiz441.com berichtet:

Bruce Springsteen Personal Guitar: $140,000 at Live Auction
But mostly Bruce rocked the Beacon Theater last night, with the Max Weinberg Big Band behind him. They did three songs — “Open All Night,” a duet with Mrs. S–Patti Scialfa, and a major, rocking, spectacular “Kitty’s Back” with something like eight horn players and just sheer wildness.

But nothing was wilder than Cristina Carlino, the woman who started Philosophy (soaps, fragrances) bidding a winning $140,000 for the guitar Springsteen used during the show. – Quelle
