Songfacts®:

  • This was the title track to the album released simultaneously with Human Touch. It probably would have sold better, but Springsteen alienated many fans by releasing both albums the same day at full price.
  • A live version was released as a single in England.
  • In 2007, this was used in the film Lucky You, a box office flop starring Drew Barrymore and Robert Duvall. >>

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn May 9th 1992, Bruce Springsteen performed "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)," "Lucky Town" and "Living Proof" on Saturday Night Live - his first network television appearance. Tom Hanks was the guest host that night.
  • Al from Hollister, CaGreat song.
    Love listening to this before I hop on my scoot for a nice long ride out to a watering hole.
  • Jaybee from Rochester, NyI love this song- Great guitar on it, although I don;t know who the guy in the video is (too screechy for me.
    good sound. Live version is very cool and I often play an acoustic version in my living room.
  • Martin from Chichester, United KingdomToo right. When i purchased this album i assumed it would be quite a diappointment... i was ready for that hearing lots of negative thoughts on this and human touch.
    However not just a few stand outs like lucky town... for me this is a very good album with beautiful songs- book of dreams/if i should fall behind/my beautiful reward an real uplifters like better days.
  • Gene from San Diego, CaTell the previous person I hate him. Great song. In fact, tell the previous person to go **** himself. No offense. Really, this album and Human Touch were great albums. Just extremely underrated.
  • Rob from Santa Monica, CaThis was released as a serious Bruce backlash was taking hold. I remember singing along, "I'm going down to Sucky Town, down to Sucky Town."
