Father's Day 2010: The Wish

The piles are starting to form a landscape -- Ravenstahl, Corbett, Onorato, Nutting, Coonelly and others overdue for smacks -- but on Father's Day all receive a pass, a chance to spend a peaceful day with their children. There will be plenty of time, and material, another day.

The Infinonytune for Father's Day is not a predictable pick, unless you expected a Christmas song written for mom. But one line of the lyric -- "if Pa's eyes were windows into a world so deadly and true, you couldn't stop me from looking but you kept me from crawlin' through" -- distills fatherhood without blinking, which is fitting.

Even if you have every studio release, Bruce Springsteen has written and performed dozens of great songs you never heard of. The Infinonytune this Father's Day is one of them. Enjoy it.
