They say ya gotta stay hungry, well baby I'm about starving tonight
This line from the song Dancing in the Dark by Bruce Springsteen resonates with me. I have been dwelling on this song lately. I am playing it, living with it and I find it to be an incredibly powerful song to sing. It seems like much of my life I have lived with this bursting at the seams feeling in my chest. It's as if my foot's on the accelerator and the passing gear is about to kick in but not yet. I lived much of my life in a town that I have from time to time wanted to escape from.
There's something happening somewhere baby I just know that there is.
I want to take this song into me and let it knock out a wall or two. I need to add onto my soul house because it is getting kinda cramped in here. Come to think of it there may be some junk I can get rid of while I'm at it.
(By the way the music video I have posted here was actually directed by Brian De Palma of Carrie and Scarface fame. The girl who he lifts on stage was a plant. She is Courteney Cox who, partly because of this video, went on to become a very successful actress including her role as Monica on Friends.)
