So better late than never as we Greeks
always say…it is about time to salute or pay our homage to one of the most
classic contemporary American music heroes. To be quite honest he was never a
personal favorite. When I was young I kept seeing him right in front of the American
flag singing born in the USA and getting endorsements from republicans acknowledging
the album’s impact on American youth, which made me kinda sick of the Boss's mainstream influence. Nevertheless and as history proven it
wasn’t his intention to write something about how cool it was to be an American.
Quite the opposite; his true intention was to show the world how inept was the
great US in keeping the working class protected and socially covered as far
as schooling or hospitalizing or equal working opportunities goes. Thus he decided from then on when he played
this particular song, it was deliberately slowed down, giving the audience a weeping sensation instead of an anthem.
