Brillant! | Reviewer: Not Young, Not Old. | 1/31/13
The dynamics of this song are amazing. The third verse where he sings "Oh yeah, your papa says he knows that I don't have any money. Well, tell him this is his last chance to get his daughter in a fine romance, because a record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance!" is pure brilliance!
Rosie | Reviewer: Anne "Rosie" Benigno | 1/30/13
A man who was a friend of myself and my husband of over 30 years called me Rosie for decades. I always knew it was based on the song but never looked up the lyrics until tonite although I saw Bruce and company perform it more than once. John passed on 1/25/2013. I will always think of him when I hear Rosalita:)
the break | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/14/11
this song was the finale for years and the best part live was the break in the middle where bruce introduced the e st band. you always wondered what he was going to say when he got to clemons: "the master of disaster, the kahuna of surf n soul...!"
Springsteen and Beam--2010 Boss | Reviewer: Double GEE | 1/4/10
The BOSS had a concert on Paladia New Years Eve Eve....we caught it a bit after it started. Then continued drinking Jim Beam Red Stag waiting for ROSALITA...drinking, waiting, drinking in between every song change--well he never played it. Got Drunk. Very very rarely drink 2 days in a row--and now New Years Eve was fast approaching at our Bar. Anywhooo's Sang Rosalita New Years Eve and was very happy with my performance--IT IS A VERY HARD SONG TO SING--All the way through--correctly--even the BOSS takes some of the highest and BEST parts and cuts them short for his live versions. I Didn't. So welcome 2010--ROSALITA STILL ROCKS--crowd loved it. Selah.
Our Abyssinian Cat Named Rosalita | Reviewer: daveinboca | 2/6/09
About 25 years ago, my wife & I bought an Abyssinian cat from a cattery in McLean, VA, sired by Spartacus and spayed because she was TOO STUCK UP to be exhibited at cat shows with mere mortals. We named her Rosalita originally because she disappeared for a week in our apartment, but reappeared while the song was playing on the FM radio! A writer named Christopher Hitchens used to drink at our house and would stare at Rosalita for a half-hour at a time and pronounce her "the most beautiful creature I have ever seen."
But Rosalita was much much more, a bird-catcher & leaper of phenomenal skills---she would jump off our third-story outdoor porch to the ground unharmed and then evade capture in skunk/cat/possum traps for weeks at a time, stealing the bait, but avoiding the trapdoor. She ran out of her nine lives about twenty-plus later when she chased a bird into heavy traffic and paid dearly for the mistake....! We still have the pictures and every time I hear the song, I see Rosalita making twelve foot standing leaps UP to our window sill to get into the house with a bird in her mouth---she was an Olympian in the cat world...!
Fenway | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/14/08
seeing bruce do rosalita two nights in a row really made up for lost time for me anyway. seen bruce several and until the fenway nights had never seen him do it. iguess he put the tuneto bed for years on account of well, its a fucking hard song to play for starters and he was sick of constant requests for it. but yes live its otherworldly.
...And now for my mother, the greatest love song I ever wrote! | Reviewer: Perry | 11/16/07
Rosalita! Great song from Springsteen's pre-Born To Run years. So honest and simple - that hand clap bit gets me everytime! The live version BLOWS THE STUDIO VERSION AWAY. Clemons sax rocks too!
Rosalita! | Reviewer: Jedd | 11/15/07
Driving into work it played on Sirius Satellite radio...crystal clear...I think it's one of Bruce's best songs.
Feets Start Tappin | Reviewer: George Douglas | 10/17/07
There are about five songs which never fail to shake me out of the blues and get me "jumpin and jivin" (OK, I'm old-so sue me) and Rosalita is my main "happy tune" . It has shaken me out of the doldrums more than once. My feets start tappin', my ass starts shakin' and my voice starts singin along full throttle not matter how many people start complainin' (I can't sing).
Thank you, Bruce and the Band, for ROSALITA- it's responsible for whatever mental health I still possess. God love ya!
