Tunnel Of Love

TUNNEL OF LOVE 5:06 TUNNEL / ESSENTIAL: 2003 / 1987 single

Note: In late June or early July, Springsteen called Toby Scott to the Carriage House to record the final song for the still unnamed album, 'Tunnel Of Love'. Bruce played all instruments, including drums, even though the complex pattern for the drum box was programmed by Scott. Next, Toby was sent to get "carnival sounds", which were recorded at Point Pleasant Amusement Park, New Jersey. The first take failed to get the proper screams and sounds, so when he returned a few days later, he enlisted the help of the owner, and successfully recorded a train full of young teenagers on the "mouse" roller coaster. After choreographing the screaming, he brought the tape back, which filled the spots where Bruce wanted the amusement sounds. Overdubs were added by Nils Lofgren (lead guitar), Roy Bittan (synthesizers), Max Weinberg (percussion) and Patti Scialfa (vocals). Now, 'Lucky Man' was removed from the unnamed album's sequence to make room for the title cut of the coming fall release, 'Tunnel Of Love', and became the b-side of the first single, 'Brilliant Disguise'.
