  • John from Tucson, AzThe live version he did on the 1988 tour linking this song and She's The One together was awesome. Definitely one of Bruce's lost little gems.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyThat sneaky Bruce, the first time I put the Tunnel Of Love cassette in my player and hit the 'Play' button I thought that the left channel of my stereo was suddenly defective, there was no sound coming from the left speaker. But 28 seconds into the song here came Bruce's harmonica. Of course I was greatly relieved!!!
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaRight On Pat...The excess of the 80's...
  • Pat from Las Vegas, NvSummary: money can't buy happiness, even if you're Bruce Springsteen. He knew it, too.
