In the summer of 1979, Springsteen practically wore out his cassette of Raspberries' Best. "They were great little pop records – I loved the production, and when I went into the studio, a lot of the things we did were like that," he recalled. "Two-, three-, four-minute pop songs, coming one after another." One of the best of his power-pop nuggets is this outtake from The River – few other artists would toss aside such a perfectly catchy chorus.
