Was Kurt Vile on this track, or was this after he left?

I forgot about that Hooters song. Good one.

Another great one, I love this song and Mark Knopfler, but it seems to be more about charting the Mason-Dixon line than about Philly.

I love this vid. Did you know Springsteen cut the vocals live for the video while filming. The studio version had different vocals.

I always thought the montage at the beginning of the "Philadelphia" film (some of it shows up in this vid) was a great representation of the city.

This is a timely topic - The Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville will have a concert with Philadelphia musicians playing Philadelphia themed songs on October 19.
Point Entertainment presents David Uosikkinen’s IN THE POCKET: Essential Songs of Philadelphia | The Colonial Theatre

The Hooters' drummer put this project together and it sounds pretty cool, I think.
