Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Living Proof”

Bruce Springsteen – Robert Cray

I went down into the desert city
Just tryin’ so hard to shed my skin
I crawled deep into some kind of darkness
Lookin’ to burn out every trace of who I’d been
You do some sad sad things baby
When it’s you you’re tryin’ to lose
You do some sad and hurtful things
I’ve seen living proof

The Boss takes us through the fire in this song from Lucky Town.

Robert Cray usually plays straight-ahead blues. But in this track from 1999’s Take Your Shoes Off, the organ from Jim Pugh makes the blues soulful and jazzy.
