"Stuck Between Stations"

Not the David Bowie song, but the one by "the greatest bar band in the world," The Hold Steady. (Though Google informs me that there are several contenders for that title.)

And I tip my cap to Wikipedia, whose article on The Hold Steady informed me that there is a label for a good chunk of the music I most like: "Heartland rock". Two of the primary influences were Dylan and Van Morrison. Four primary exemplars are Springsteen, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, and John Mellencamp. And among the musicians grouped under the label are (depending on the source): BoDeans, Lone Justice, John Hiatt, The Hold Steady, John Cafferty, Little Steven, Southside Johnny, Los Lobos, Bruce Hornsby, Neil Young, Tom Cochrane, The Killers, and Iron City Houserockers. A pretty good group.
