Though it’s different from his other albums, I’ve always liked Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. It hardly sold as many albums as his later works but that’s not necessarily a good judge of quality anyway.
After the latest ridiculous claim by Fox News (Solar only works in Germany because it gets more sunlight than US) I was thinking about the blinding sun of non-Mediterranean Europe. Sort of like this morning.
Last weekend I slipped out for a quick ride on the bike and yes, it was actually sunny when I left. I was so excited to see the sun that I looked around for my sunglasses so I wouldn’t have to squint. Naturally I was about 10 minutes into my 90 minute ride when the skies turned black and it rained.
I damned near crashed into another cyclist when I was going under a bridge because it was so dark with my sunglasses on and he was dressed in black with a black bike. (I can’t see very well without my prescription glasses.) Ah yes, sunny Europe.
