Track Review: Bruce Springsteen – “Working on a Dream”

Whistle while you work. While you work on a dream. Or something like that. The Boss is back, and this is the title track from his new album, which comes out January 27. Bruce first unleashed this at an Obama rally around election time, and that seems appropriate for this optimistic tune. For a lot of people 2009 seems to have both arrived early (on Election Day) and still not be here (until Inauguration Day). “Working on a Dream” is the melody to fill that gap. The punchy bass at the beginning sets the perfect tone. The whistling interlude makes me smile.
