I'm Goin' Down

You know, I love Bruce Springsteen -- I used to haunt him on the Jersey Shore, to little avail, although I once did go trick-or-treating at his house, even though I was an old fart and so was he -- and I like to think that he is some kind of genius about the human heart. And yet, here he is in this video, grasping awkwardly for the truth of the human heart. He is surprisingly awkward about it, with nary an insightful thing to say, until he gets to his music. Then it all takes off and it all makes sense. But I am surprised about how little he actually has to say before he gets to the singing part. It really humanizes him....
