It's rawkin'!
Plain and simple.
His vocals are reminiscent of a 60 something year old man (how old is he?)
"Hi ho silver, carry me from nowhere" (or is that deliver me from nowhere) some song from Nebraska or well, I don't remember the title, but it's definataly acoustic.

Radio Nowhere seems like a rockin version of something that could easily be haunting and searching in acoustic mode.

I gotta say Bruce, I like the crashing drums, the version I got seems like the guitar sound is new but it's 2007 and the sonics could easily be from, well my first thought was a sound like "Lucky Town" with some serious distortion.

Is there anybody alive out there? You ask, and well you've said that so many times.
You're complaining about wanting to hear some rhythm and yet you got it.

Your voice sounds straight outta "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" era with some "The River" sound as well as rawking "Nebraska" era.

The sax solo is too quick to come in, as if placed there, intentionally but there it is, no flow.

Who knows, maybe this is an outtake, thanks rec.music.artists.springsteen for the lead!
My version cuts out at the fade out, I just want to hear some rhythm, I ! cut.

So, the audience is supposed to fill this in.

The lyrics are much too simple, not uplifting like "The Rising" but can you imagine the audience trying to sing "I just want to hear some rhythm"?

Buried in the rhythm guitar intro is a solo somewhere before Springsteen sings.
This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there.

Oh man do I hope you can explain why this seems like a slap in the face to those who followed you for years, built careers knowing the influence of Springsteen and God knows how many artists including myself might think this is "I'm better than you".

This song oughta not be included whatsoever. It's an out take, plain and simple. Great drumming, a sax solo that is just, there, nothing too special.
Don't get me wrong, this is rings around anything I could build, or maybe I could do better, I don't know.

Bruce Springsteen, I don't know who convinced you to put this song together, but it's definitely not a "Baby, I can't find the station, to bring back our love formation, our honest relation, radio nowhere, can't find you anywhere" (I made that part up).

He's sounded the same for 15-20 years....

I understand your position, but believe me, it is a lot worse on this song.

There's nothing that grabs me about this track.

At first believe it or not, I thought of Queen's "Radio Ga Ga".

Radio what's new, someone still love's you



I just want to hear some rhythym.

There is a aire of similarity, thus as if radio is disappearing.

Some write that "Radio Nowhere" is an attack upon talk radio, I degress upon that attack, neither saying it is or is not until Bruce Springsteen, clarifies the subject of "Radio Nowhere".

In other words your ears don't work (Radio Ga Ga????) and you can't figure out what the lyrics mean until someone explains it to you?
