I was listening to Bruce Springsteen's performance of Rosalita (Come On Out Tonight), part of the Maine Point performance from 1975 and the line about the record company just giving him a big advance had an impact with me. It's been some years since we heard about anyone being given any kind of 'big advance' (the last one I can recall was EMI's squandering of £8million on Robbie Williams back in 2002). Even the idea of 'record companies' now sounds a little quaint and old-fashioned in this age of mass-media conglomerates. I'm not a huge Bruce fan, but I'd imagine this song (which only makes sense when sung by a youngish man, anyway) has long been dropped from his live set. Any other examples of songs that give away their age with one line?
