The Boss, aka Bruce Springsteen, performed a song last night that we just can’t get out of our heads. It’s called “Forward, And Away We Go.” According to USA Today, “Springsteen said Obama called him up — we’re not sure whether he was joking — and said he wanted to close the ‘campaign song gap’ with Republican rival Mitt Romney.” So the boss wrote this short ditty. Have a listen and make sure to shout the name of your favorite Jewish newspaper after each stanza — “Forward!”

It might not surprise you that celebrities were tweeting pre-, post- and even mid-Seder. Some typed clever quips, while others sent out heartfelt thoughts, including greetings for Easter, which coincides this year with the first days of Passover. Here are some of The Shmooze’s favorite Pesach posts of 140 characters or less:
Susan Orlean (on a pre-Passover flight): On this flight we eat only unleavened peanuts and snack mix, to remember how hastily we went through security.
Joan Rivers: Heading to Melissa’s for Passover. Seders in L.A. are so showbiz – until Elijah arrives, we’ve hired a seat filler from the Oscars.
