“I wanted one thing on the record that was the perfect pop universe. You know, that day when it’s all right there; it’s the world that only exists in pop songs, and once in a while you stumble on it. It’s the longing, the unrequited longing for that perfect world. Pop is funny. It’s a tease. It’s an important one, but it’s a tease, and therein resides its beauty and its joke.”
Bruce Springsteen acerca de “Girls in Their Summer Clothes”, canción de Magic (2007), en un reportaje de A. O. Scott, The New York Times, hoy.
