The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

A huge thank you to everyone who entered the ‘Springsteen in Limerick’ Limerick Contest! What a treat to read your limericks! The winner of the contest with a limerick that is funny, follows the limerick rules, and has a surprise ending was written by Barbara Wells. Congrats Barbara! We also have four runners up and they are: Lori Klark, Andy Holding, Rosanna, and Craig. I hope you enjoy the limericks as much as we did! (Winners please email Leann at to arrange to receive your prize!)

There once was a singer named Bruce,

who once famously said “are ya loose?”

And nobody minded,

when he played the song Blinded.

But remember, the right word is “deuce”

- Barbara Wells
There one was a rocker named Bruce

Loved by millions of fans I deduce

He gives his whole heart and soul

When he plays rock and roll

And someday his behind I must goose!

- Lori Klark
There simply is no excuse

To not like a rocker called Bruce

You’ll love Thunder Road

And The Ghost of Tom Joad

If you don’t get The Boss you’re obtuse

- Andy Holding
There once was a rocker called Bruce

Great songs he would always produce

His shows are the best

He’s tougher than the rest

Cos that man never runs out of juice!

- Rosanna
A Bruce concert hits all the themes

Our senses are brought to extremes

Dreams never are thwarted

Faith’s always rewarded

He embodies our hope and our dreams

- Craig
