Bruce Springsteen turns 60 today, here are some blasts from the past.
Happy Birthday Bruce
Here are The Hold Steady with their version of Springsteen’s “Atlantic City”
I posted earlier this year on my other blog (see link) about this Hold Steady song in relation to the start of the new football season almost as a call to arms for other fans of Dumbarton FC.
It is strange how pereceptions change as the title phrase “Stay Positive” has now become the buzz word amongst family and friends.
Mrs D starts radiotherapy next week and without doubt we will stay positive, positivity and hope are all we can cling to at present.
I got a lot of old friends that are getting back in touch
And it’s a pretty good feeling, yeah, it feels pretty good
I get a lot of double takes when I’m coming round the corners
And it’s mostly pretty nice, yeah, it’s mostly pretty all right.
‘Cause most kids give me credit for being down with it
When it was back in the day, back when things were way different
When the Youth of Today and the early 7 Seconds
Taught me some of life’s most valuable lessons.
There’s gonna come a time when the scene will seem less sunny
And they’ll probably get too druggy and the kids will seem too skinny
There’s gonna come a time when she’s gonna have to go
With whoever’s gonna get her the highest.
There’s gonna come a time when the true scene leaders
Forget where they differ and get big picture.
‘Cause the kids at the shows, they’ll have kids of their own
Their sing-along songs will be our scriptures.
We gotta stay positive x4
When the chaperone crowned us the king and the queen
I knew that we’d arrived at a unified scene
And all those little lambs from my dreams,
Well they were there too.
‘Cause it’s one thing to start it with a positive jam
And it’s another thing to see ‘em through.
And we couldn’t even done this if it wasn’t for you.We gotta stay postiive x3
