Ithat ever an understatement...Springsteen's version was a serious flop. He wrote that way back in '72....and he still has album's coming out (next one in about 8 weeks, actually)....not bad for a guy pushing 60.

That explains why I never heard it (I'm certainly "old" enough to have it had recieved any airtime).

Toirtis, I think it's time for a hint!

Well, well...that was indeed a toughie Toirtis

Here's a selection from the archives...get out your vinyl.

"...you like your life in a free-form style
you'll take an inch but you'd love a mile
there never seems to be quite enough
floating around to fill your lovin' cup..."

Dang...now it's stuck in my head...LOL
