Well, it's not the "Monster Mash" but Bruce Springsteen has decided to give us all a little Halloween treat that is tastier than even the sweetest miniature-sized Almond Joy--a video for a brand new song.
The bluesy haunt of "A Night with the Jersey Devil" is very un-Bruce, but his wild stomping howl (think Nick Cave, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, or Tom Waits) is a nice fit to a song that tells the tale about an evil creature that haunts South Jersey. The locals refer to it as
Jon Bon Jovi the New Jersey Devil.
Dim the lights, lock the door, don't go into those woods, and watch it here.
