Saving the World One Song at a Time
This may be the first time in the history of this blog that I've posted on it twice in one day. If so, this is a good reason to do it: Bruce Springsteen was on Good Morning America today doing "Jacob's Ladder" from his new album of Pete Seeger covers, officially released today. A while back, I wrote about Springsteen in the late 70s, calling that era "the days when Springsteen's passionate intensity made people believe that rock and roll might be able to save the world." A performance like "Jacob's Ladder" makes me believe Springsteen's music might be able to save us in 2006. Hear it here.
