The Worst Springsteen Song EVER

Hey, Jeff Bradley here.

That's me, at a Bruce show last summer at Giants Stadium. I've been to over 100 in my lifetime, starting back in 1980 at MSG. I consider myself a worthy judge of all things Springsteen...and like most zealots I've cut Bruce much slack through the years. For example, I kept Devils and Dust in my car's CD player for a good month before finally telling a friend (privately), "it kinda sucks, except for maybe four songs."

Anyway, I'm taking off the gloves today. And here's what I'm sayin'...

See ya, Cover Me. Adios, 57 Channels and Nothing On.

You're now safe, Big Muddy, Last to Die and Gypsy Biker.

You're off the hook boys...as of January 27th, there's a new worst Bruce song.

Here it is, folks.

Queen of the Supermarket

There's a wonderful world where all you desire
And everything you've longed for is at your fingertips
Where the bittersweet taste of life is at your lips
Where aisles and aisles of dreams await you
And the cool promise of ecstasy fills the air
At the end of each working day she's waiting there

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
As the evening sky turns blue
A dream awaits in aisle number two

With my shopping cart I move through the heart
Of a sea of fools so blissfully unaware
That they're in the presence of something wonderful and rare
The way she moves behind the counter
Beneath her white apron her secret remains hers
As she bags the groceries her eyes so bored
And sure she's unobserved

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
There's nothing I can say
Each night I take my groceries and I drift away
And I drift away

Guidance from the gods above
At night I pray for the strength to tell her
When I love I love I love I love her so
Take my place in the check-out line
For one moment her eyes meet mine
I'm lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted up

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
Though her company cap covers her hair
Nothing can hide the beauty waiting there
The beauty waiting there

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket

As I lift my groceries in to my car
I turn back for a moment and catch a smile
That blows this whole fucking place apart

I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
I'm in love with the Queen of the Supermarket
