New Bruce Juice

Are we back?  Did we defeat SOPA?  Not quite yet?  Well, let’s keep fighting the good fight, ladies and gentlemen.

For those of you old enough to remember (or just well-versed in history), Dave Herman was a radio personality on the legendary WNEW-FM.  Occasionally, he would play a Bruce Springsteen track and announce it as a dose of Bruce Juice.  On Wednesday, we got a taste of some new Bruce Juice, which, to me, sounds like… well, kind of like “classic” Springsteen.  Then again, I thought the same thing about “Radio Nowhere” and “The Rising.”

Springsteen fans will like “We Take Care Of Our Own,” as well as endlessly discuss the lyrical content (which you can see in the video below).  Is he making a commentary on the state of the U.S., in that the country should take care of its own?  Or maybe, based on a cursory read through the YouTube comments, he’s making a reference to Hurricane Katrina, and we as individuals need to take care of our own, and not count on the country to do it for us?

Have a listen for yourself.  What do you think?

“We Take Care Of Our Own” – Bruce Springsteen


Author: Dr. Chuck

I started out as a child, then things kind of grew from there.  I spend way too much time around computers and radios, but I do like to take a break once in a while.  I'm not a real doctor, but I played one on the radio in college. A bit later on, I wrote an article that was published in COMPUTE!'s Gazette (Commodore 64/128 magazine). I also think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.
