THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - RADIO NOWHERE

"Radio Nowhere" by Bruce Springsteen
"Radio Nowhere" is the first single released from Bruce Springsteen's 2007 studio album Magic.

"Radio Nowhere" was awarded Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and Best Rock Song at the Grammy Awards of 2008. The song is an up-tempo, electric guitar-driven, modern rocker that features the work of E Street Band members Max Weinberg on drums, Garry Tallent on bass guitar, Clarence Clemons on saxophone, Steven Van Zandt, Clemons and Patti Scialfa on background vocals, and Nils Lofgren on a guitar part underneath Clemons's sax solo.

The opening guitar riff and chord progression are somewhat reminiscent of Tommy Tutone's 1982 hit "867-5309/Jenny" with Tommy Tutone lead singer Tommy Heath quoted as saying: "Everybody’s calling me about it," and that, "I think it's close enough that if I wanted to [take legal action], I could work with it."

Dedicated to "Big Man" Clarence Clemmons...
