We’re going to have to keep this one short and sweet today as I am a bit busy, but didn’t wanna fall completely off the tracks within my first week of blogging, so of course here is the song of the day for Sunday.
This one has more of a rockish vibe to it as it is a song written by the Boss himself, Mr. Bruce Springsteen. The tune that we will recognize today is “The River.” Not be confused with his whole album, just the single track coming in at spot number 11 on his album also entitled “The River.”
This song starts off a little slower and then ramps up a little especially towards the last minute and a half of the song. Springsteen croons out the touching lyrics of young love that are now haunting him. One of my personal favorite lines from this song is “Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true or is it something worse?” That line comes to me most often I’d say along with the stretch of music from 0.32-0.40. I respect this song and will hopefully always enjoy it. Alas I could write about this song forever however this is all I have time for today. Take a listen to this song if you get the chance, you won’t regret it!
For your ease of listening to it…
