Happy Birthday, Bruce Springsteen!

September 23, 2013

“Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim
The walls of my room are closing in
There’s a war outside still raging
You say it ain’t ours anymore to win
I want to sleep beneath
Peaceful skies in my lover’s bed
With a wide open country in my eyes
And these romantic dreams in my head”

Bruce Frederick Springsteen: Born Sept. 23, 1949

Happy birthday to Bruce Springsteen, the man who shined a bright light so that we might keep those romantic dreams alive and in our my heads. The man who sang of not surrendering to the harsh darkness of this world when your soul is on the line. The man who sang that when the walls are closing in, to show a little faith, because faith will be rewarded in the wide open country of our dreams.

No Surrender:

Just do a little search here and you’ll find there’s lots here on Art Predator about Bruce Springsteen, much of it written by the talented Ron Wells.

Because, as you can probably guess from this photo, my husband is a BIG Bruce fan and has been for a long time–and he’s attended well over 100 Bruce shows! Just look how long both Bruce and my husband are! So yes, it’s a pretty big day here at my house. (It’s also Ani di Franco’s birthday and a few other musicians too!)

So while I’m tempted to sing the Beatle’s tune “When I’m 64″… you know with lyrics that go

“when I get older losing my hair…” well instead…

Here are a few of the posts you’ll find about Bruce Springsteen here on Art Predator:
