I really can't say enough about what a great song Bruce Springsteen's "Girls In Their Summer Clothes" is (although I've written about it already).

If you love it also, you'll be interested that he's just released a digital EP, which includes a "winter remix" of the song by Magic producer Brendan O'Brien, a live recording of the song from the current tour, and the video which was directed by Mark Pellington, who also directed Bruce's "Lonesome Day" video. It's similar to that video - a gorgeously shot film of Bruce walking around what seems like Asbury Park, and there's footage of good looking girls of many ages, they don't look like models, it seems like that's just who was around that day. This EP doesn't shake the planet, but it's nice to have other variations on the song. The "winter remix" is so subtly different you barely notice it. I'd love to hear a Brian Wilson remix, or Phil Spector (if he wasn't otherwise occupied).

Of course, I heard about this first on Backstreets, the best Springsteen web site around (and I include Bruce's official site in that statement).
