Bruce Springsteen – “Streets of Philadelphia” Music from “Philadelphia” 
Primitive Radio Gods – “Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand” Rocket 
Let’s just be clear: lay down a keyboard track, throw some crappy electronic beats over that ish and put some mumbly vocals in the background and I will love that song forever.
It should also be noted: not only did Chris O’Connor of PRG rely heavily on B.B. King’s “How Blue Can You Get” (Live at the Regal ), but the title is baldly stolen from Bruce Cockburn’s “Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand” (Further Adventures Of ). Still, I just love this song. Maybe we’ll have some meta posts later about creativity and originality (or the lack thereof) in modern popular music.
