You know, it's a good thing that Springsteen apologized about his Wal-Mart blunder and that it made the Yahoo News' headline because everyone I know in my neighborhood; everyone I know, period, is aghast that he allowed this to happen.
I'm surprised he didn't call a press conference.
In fact, the entire country and world is completely focused on Springsteen; his every move and they deserved an explanation.
Actually, since only a small minority of his fans felt betrayed by this action, and no one else gives a 'hoot," he could have written an explanation on his website.
My attention is for other obvious reasons that have nothing to do with being a fan as evidenced throughout this thread.
Talk about news that isn't news worthy.
There are people dying in Iraq, our economy is the worst in 28 years; people are homeless and starving and this is news?
He donated the proceeds to charity.
What does that amount to?
A greatest hits CD was the product.
Like this hasn't been packaged and repackaged a zillion times?

And then there was another point of view in the Washington Post today... washingtonpost.com
When a hardened sportswriter/gushing fan asked who picks the songs the band plays, Springsteen looked at his bandmates and said with the incredulousness of someone who couldn't believe the absurdity of the question: "I'm the Boss! I decide. The Boss decides. Other people suggest or cajole, but I decide."
From what I'm hearing, the performance at the Super Bowl will be a medley which will include the song about Wendy, the Tramp.
Awesome love song.
Don't you think?
You know, when you love someone and you want to guard their dreams and visions, you should always write a song and call them a TRAMP, a slut or a whore.
Way to win some one's love.
That's what the controller's said about me.
Those who abused me and desired that's what I be when I escaped their grasp.
I was a tramp, a slut and a whore, they said.
Most probably the reason the "Born to Run" album was delivered to me back in the day.
Many of Springsteen's songs contain "subliminal" messages/triggers for disinformation/commands and this is one of them. I've spoken about others on this thread.
The reason many of his songs are not fluid is because they are purposely written obscure to keep his fanatics wrapped up in the mystery of trying to figure out what he's singing about and because they contain embedded messages.
The reason he always seems to have to explain the theme of a song/album.
MOST PEOPLE DON'T GET IT.
Even his most hard-core fans can't figure it out and even when he does explain it, the theme doesn't come through the lyrics.
Springsteen's disrespect for women is apparent in his personal life and throughout the lyrics in his songs.
I wonder if Wendy was a real person in Springsteen's life and how she feels about this song.
Ah, probably Springsteen just playing the narrator role and singing about a guy TRAMP who is in love with a female TRAMP.
That's the ticket.

Springsteen's fanatics and how, before a show, they go to TARGET, buy magic markers, poster board and spend days making a sign with the words of a song that they want Springsteen to play; coloring it in; drawing pictures; bringing it with them to a show; getting a place in the pit; holding it up like a preschooler and hoping Springsteen will pick it from the sea of dozens and play the song; and, when he does, they feel so special.
With all the hype about Springsteen's performance at the Super Bowl, you would have thought it was the second coming of Jesus.
I didn't see Jesus, did you?
I saw a silhouette of Clarence Clemens and Springsteen back to back.
Why don't they come out of the closet already?

According to some posters over at BTX, the camera man should feel grateful.
Oh, yeah, I'm sure every male and female on the face of the planet is just hoping and praying that one day Springsteen's crotch lands in their face especially while in a public setting.
Obviously, the fanatics over at BTX are under the impression that everyone in the world shares in their perverse fantasies of their hero.
A poster at BTX in The Promised Land referred to Springsteen's genitals as the FAMILY JEWELS!?!
I find it interesting that so many of Springsteen's male fanatics have a man crush on him, but, then again, not really that interesting, because Springsteen definitely displays homosexual tendencies on stage and through his songs.
