Bruce Springsteen and his music have had a profound effect on my life. His music has been the backdrop in the good times and anthems through the bad.
There’s something liberating about putting down all the windows in the car, turning the radio up to an ear-piercing decibel and cranking out a Springsteen classic.
Of course, I’m biased. I’m sure the same could be said of any artist if you’re a fan though I’m not sure cruising to Norah Jones tunes gives the same intense feeling.
I could be wrong but I’ll never try it and find out.
Bruce Springsteen songs, specifically the Springsteen lyrics, are incredibly inspiring. Every every line and word feels as though Bruce is specifically talking about the life of the listener. “Hey, that’s me! That happened to me!”
Obviously, the situations in Bruce Springsteen songs are shared (for example, we’ve all been up in Candy’s room even if the girl’s name wasn’t Candy) and the lyrics feel just as personal on the last listen, the same way they did on the first listen all those years ago.
For a little bit of inspiration, motivation and just because I’m a fan, here are some of my favorite Bruce Springsteen songs and the lyrics that make for damn inspirational quotes. If I missed a personal favorite, leave it in the comments section.
