oooooh, yah

I've just heard that Arcade Fire song, Keep The Car Running, and couldn't help thinking that it's the most Bruce Springsteen/Eddie and the Cruisers sounding song I have ever heard — outside of a Bruce Springsteen or Eddie and The Cruisers song. It is uncannily that song that goes, On the dark side, oh-yah... — only seriously more serious.

So I googled "Arcade Fire + dark side" and to my surprise, or not, as it's an obvious rip-off, found that I'm not the only person who's made this connection.

I've decided that I like "On the Darkside" better. I mean, dude's a greaser - which is so much cooler than being arty, wanna' be french canadians. Plus, his version features hand claps.
