Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Real Man”

Bruce Springsteen – Todd Rundgren

The video for this song from Human Touch looks like it was shot through a telescope or half a set of binoculars, but the sound is pretty good. Hard to get my mind around the fact that it was nearly 24 years ago.


Todd Rundgren has always been a one-man band, and he just revels in it in this clip from the Midnight Special. He already multi-tracked himself for the album cut, so for this performance he just took out the lead vocal track and sang it himself “live”.

Bell-bottoms and puffy sleeves, singing about being a “real man”. I wholeheartedly agree – being a “real” man is whatever you want it to be!
