"Bruce Springsteen: 41 Years on Thunder Road"

"In this video, I wanted to explore how a song like Thunder Road has changed, not only in the way Springsteen performs it, but also how its meaning evolves with an older person singing . . ."

If you don't want to spend the 5.5 minutes listening, here's the gist: as The Boss gets older "Thunder Road" tends to get slower, less energetic, more overwrought.

But I guess that's a reasonable metaphor for aging.


"In some courts, Dylan rules"

I wonder if Dylan is pleased by this.

No musician's lyrics are more often cited than Dylan's in court opinions and briefs, say legal experts who have chronicled the artist's influence on today's legal community. From U.S. Supreme Court rulings to law school courses, Dylan's words are used to convey messages about the law and courts gone astray.
