Bruce Springsteen: Jungleland Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Get "Jungleland" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
In Harlem late last night
And the Magic Rat drove his sleek machine
Over the Jersey state line
Barefoot girl sitting on the hood of a Dodge
Drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain
The Rat pulls into town rolls up...

A great song with CLARENCE CLEMONS [r.i.p] ''The Big Man'' in Bruce Springsteen and the E street Band's saxophone player who came at the right time in a awesome way that completed the band on the overall to create a out of this world sound that dug deep in the heart and soul of the individual within this song that feels in being one with the city ghetto streets culture that you were living in back then or even now to experience it as a living poetry. These souls in this song are struggling to survive and to find love in their faith for redemption within each other and not to be forgotten like some lost gods of the past that were being pushed out of existence that wanted to make a stand for their rights. Growing up within the city streets in crime,gangs,homelessness,drugs,etc., can give you more of a appreciation for a song like this one that hits home. Inside where, there are also visions of ''the west side story'' in this song played out metaphorically with all the different forms of characters, along with the internal struggle to face yourself and your shadows by being in a western version of the classical Apollyon and Dionisian clash showdown to struggle in the balance to fight for your love that it's not quite dead down in ''Jungleland''
