Bruce Springsteen

July 24, 2009

Is he even human? WHat is this awesome power that Bruce Springsteen has? Who gave him all that power, and how did he learn to use that power to make the four-minute miracles he has?

I just started getting heavily into Bruce Springsteen last year…mostly because modern rock depresses me with how bad it is. So, I began listening to Bruce, and since then I haven’t looked back. Watch the below video for me, really quickly, then read the rest of this post.

You just don’t get lyrics like that anymore! “You ain’t a beauty, but, hey, you’re alright.” Instead you get the over dubbed crap that is spewed out of machines and smattered on a cd, and titled, “In Da Club.” Where did the english language go? Somehow, Bruce managed to mold and sculpt the english language into a miracle, lay it beautifully on top of a melody, and it sing it from the depths of his soul every time.

There is a reason Springsteen is a legend. Not only is he devastatingly good-looking, (thats really only a side note) but he’s also an amazingly talented writer, singer and musician. Hell, I’ve seen his interviews, and he’s funny too! This post is essentially a shout out to Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen, and its basically a public showing of my devotion to him and his music.

Thank you, Bruce Springsteen, for being awesome. You rock.

    Rush turned me on years and years ago to Jonathan Richman, speaking of great musical presences in our lives. It’s time you got on board!

    Always been mesmerised by the tear in his voice…and his simple rockn’roll songs with so much power in it…no need to read 300 pages thick supposedly interesting books, Jonathan Richman tells the same (feelings)in less than 5 minutes.

    When the cool of the pond makes you drop down on it / When the smell of the lawn makes you flop down on it / When the teenage car gets the cop down on it / that time is here for one more year…”

    Bruce Springsteen is that rare thing in rock & roll: a true original. He drew upon a lot of great influences: rockabilly, r&b, Motown, blues, gospel, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan — and made something unique out of it all. And there’s almost no Beatles influence. Bruce is entirely American. Awesome. A Rock & Roll Hall of Fame immortal, indeed.
