Springsteen endorses Obama


On a related note: a generous reader sent me the new Springsteen CD, Magic, off the Wish List a couple of months ago, and it’s barely been out of the stereo in my car since. The song Gypsy Biker, in particular, deserves to join the pantheon of best anti-war songs ever:

To the dead it don’t matter much
‘Bout who’s wrong or right
You asked me that question I didn’t get it right
You slipped into your darkness
Now all that remains
Is my love for you brother
Lying still and unchanged
To them that threw you away
You ain’t nothin’ but gone
Our Gypsy biker is comin’ home
