Suicide Springsteen

Suicide's first self-titled record and Springsteen's Nebraska are two of my favorite albums. Both are spare albums - Nebraska's sweaty, minimalist acoustics and Suicide's cold, minimalist electronics. Both albums' lyrics mirror the musical content, filled with songs of isolation, desparation, and sadness. They're hard albums to listen to, but ultimately two very beautiful pieces of art, and excellent night-driving music. If you don't own both in some format, I highly suggest you get on that.

All that being said, here's this thing:

Suicide - Ghost Rider
Bruce Springsteen - State Trooper
