This week in BRUCE History

Published on June 6, 2013, by in LeeLee Blogs.

June 4, 1984…Bruce releases Born in the USA…

An album that defines the 80s and the MTV generation…

The following is just a funny essay with a shout out to each single on the record!

I will always love the BORN IN THE USA album!
It makes me think of the GLORY DAYS in MY HOMETOWN of Fort Lee, New Jersey…when I would daydream about driving to DARLINGTON COUNTY with Bruce while he sang I’M ON FIRE to me…
It reminds me of my lifelong desire to cross the George Washington Bridge and escape to my favorite city- New York- on a DOWNBOUND TRAIN.
The album was the soundtrack of summers down the shore…it was always playing on the radio while dealing with constant traffic on the Jersey Turnpike or Garden State Parkway… thanks to construction crews WORKING ON THE HIGHWAY…
Every single time I hear DANCING IN THE DARK, I have no problem admitting that I still want to be Courtney Cox in that music video…
The album brings me back to all the silly fun with my bff Cheryl otherwise known as BOBBY JEAN…knowing she would always COVER ME…and lift my spirits if I felt I’M GOING DOWN…
Our friendship is still strong today because it’s based on the pledge of NO SURRENDER…

BORN IN THE USA is without a doubt one of the best albums!

xo,

LEELEE
