There is something about Bruce Springsteen’s “Incident on 57th Street” that makes it ethereal. How you can pen such a profound and meaningful song in your early 20s, as Springsteen was when he released 1973’s The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, is nothing short of phenomenal. It’s that cinematic style of writing he engaged in so early on and let a story unfold that makes us feel like we are there, living it with the characters, Spanish Johnny, and Puerto Rican Jane.
The whole freaking song is a masterpiece. From the delicate piano in the opening bars, and the bending notes on that Telecaster, to the lyrics, music, imagery, and storytelling, all of it is nothing short of spectacular. And that solo to take the song out, absolutely incredible. If the song isn’t considered out of this world, it should.
