Rocker Rich Lynch Rearranges Broadway Marquee And Emerges With The Timely "Ow, A Bad Singer's Pony Rent"

(Nashville, TN) - Musician Rich Lynch spent most of his life in New Jersey before moving to Nashville, Tennessee in order to pursue a full-time recording career. So, he was well familiar with that state's favorite son Bruce Springsteen and like millions of others he counted himself a fan and admirer.

"I've definitely seen Bruce in concert over thirty times since the 80's," Lynch recalled, adding, "and, I've shook his hand on at least three occasions."

Rich Lynch the fan never imagined he would write a song about him that could be considered anything less than reverential. But, then Bruce announced an 80-show run of dates on Broadway in New York City.

"I read a lot of the feedback on Springsteen forums and his own social media outlets," Lynch said describing the genesis for his latest track produced in Music City. "A lot of fans were disappointed in the extremely high tickets prices and they were expressing their feelings on these public websites."

But, seeing some comments on message boards wasn't enough to trigger the process of lining up studio time to create a new modern rock anthem. There was another factor that was provided by the title of the show itself.

"Something was bothering me about the name of the production," Lynch recalled revealing how he came up with the name for his latest online single. "I'm a creative person and often I'll employ unusual methods to help inspire my songwriting."

Lynch printed out an image of the marquee that read "Springsteen On Broadway" and using a scissors and some tape he cut out each individual letter and started rearranging them until he found a perfect anagram containing the unlikely but strangely fitting phrase:

"Ow, A Bad Singer's Pony Rent".

"Once I stopped laughing I realized there might be something here," Lynch told reporters about that spark of inspiration that fueled the new number. "I quickly crafted three verses dealing with the universal subjects of greed, lost integrity and the dangers of blind faith and then the chorus basically wrote itself. The demo was done within 48 hours."

Lynch isn’t alone in thinking The Boss might've have gone too far in his latest career move that seemingly alienates his traditional blue-collar base while playing up to the wealthy he once ridiculed in song.

"I found support for this song in a Philly.com opinion piece called ‘Profiteering On Broadway’ that was published in September when the show was announced," Lynch said. "In the article the author described how the people most likely sitting in the front row would be the Banker’s Hill types that Bruce had once railed against on his late career Wrecking Ball album."

Taking a cue from the Traveling Wilburys and their "Tweeter and the Monkey Man" there are a number of Bruce references on the track that help illustrate the disillusionment expressed by many of his longtime followers.

"For me, I'm a songwriter and an observer of life as it goes on around me," Lynch said of his role as a modern day bard. "This song isn't necessarily from my point of view but it does tell the side of disillusioned fans."

To get the job done Lynch approached former Crossfire Choir frontman Jay Pounders to produce the effort and brought the always in demand Nashville guitarist Nick Johnson on board to add a strong classic rock vibe to the nearly 4 minute slice of protesting pop rock.

"I think Jay and Nick did a fantastic job and we can't wait to do more," Lynch said complimenting his musical mates. "I think Pounders might've have found a new Nashville rock sound with this one. He's probably going to be a very busy man real soon."
