As I sit here and listen to the lyrical brilliance of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" by Bruce Springsteen, it occurs to me that I must be missing sooo many great songs that tell equally visual tales. The whole album itself is amazing, but very low-key so if you want to dance or feel good, forget about it; you got the wrong number. If you want to be transported into people's lives and struggles by a song however, run out and get this recording. Get "Nebraska" too while you're at it. So: If anyone has any other good examples of songs (or whole albums) that tell stories, I'd love to hear them. Here's a small sample of mine: - Bruce Springsteen's: The Ghost Of Tom Joad, the whole album but particularly: Highway 29, Dry Lightning, & Straight Time. - Gordon Lightfoot's: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. - Mark Knopfler's: Sailing to Philadelphia. - Kenny Rogers: Coward of the County (I know, I know, a guilty pleasure ) N.
