Springsteen at Kennedy Center awards!

Any body catch else catch this the other night? Sting is the honoree and Bruce does "I hang My Head" a song I had never heard before, and just lights it up! Screaming at the TV great.


The films of De Sica, of Welles, of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger made little money and endure as spiritual delights.

The song is actually I 'Hung' My Head. It was written and recorded by Sting in 1996. Johnny Cash did a cover in 2002....

I always look forward to the performance finale and I though this years' was OK. Somewhat disappointed as I told my wife as the show ended. It might have been the editing however the audience didn't appear to be as moved as usual. Perhaps simply because of the tone of the song they were more subdued.

Surprising that Sting wrote it...definitely not his usual fare.


BTW, for those who don't know, Springsteen has FINALLY released some re-masters: The Album Collection Vol. 1 1973-1984 Box set, Original recording remastered


Having bought and listened, I can report the AQ is excellent and worth every penny for those who love the first 7 albums (the only ones that really matter).
Available at Amazon for 80 bucks.

Only girly-men push The Red Button.
