Wednesday Live: Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen: Born in the USA
It is quite apt that a song most people confuse for American pride and prosperity is actually a song critical of life in America in the 60’s and 70’s. Ronald Reagan was famous for invoking the famous Bruce song as a campaign rallying cry, unaware of the anti war and failing economic themes that run rampant through the song. On such a controversial day in America take some time to have a listen and ponder the internal struggle Bruce and people have balancing national pride with national shame, I have a feeling there is a lot of the latter going on today.
