Now that it’s warm out and I’ve been cooking various red meats for dinner, on the stove, and I just listened to “Night Falls on Hoboken” for the first time in years because the CD copy in my car has an actual hole in it, this cover, one of my favorite covers, no actually just my favorite cover entirely, means too much to me. I’ve never spent an extended period of time in New Jersey in my life, but for some reason their summers — “New Jersey Summers” — strangely affect me. I think of sparklers and hamburgers. It’s not even summer yet.
