In April 1981 I listened to Bruce Springsteen for the first time. He sang about a darling.
Since then, I listened to every Springsteen song, outtake, demo, cover and live recording.
I started to understand the distance between the American dream and American reality.
I followed the dream anyway.
Springsteen also sings of other realities: temptation, sin, forgiveness, life, death, hope and faith.
In December 2014 he sang about the belief in the Kingdom come. Then all the colours will bleed into one.
This is the dream and the reality. This is Christmas. I believe it.
Wishing you and all tramps a Merry Christmas and a rocking 2015!
