Shuffle Song Of The Day (5/22/18): “Glory Days” By Bruce Springsteen

“Glory Days” is a song by the legend himself, Bruce Springsteen, from his 1984 hit album Born In The USA. This song is the anthem for people that are washed up in life, which unfortunately is all of us whether we deny it or not. You ever meet up with some old friends you haven’t seen in years and start talking about the glory days? Exactly what this song is. A few beers and some old friends eventually turns into talking about the past, and next thing you know we all turn into Uncle RICO from Napoleon Dynamite start talking about our highschool football stats and how we should’ve won States. Reminiscing about the past with people that made the past worth remembering is a great activity, and if that makes me washed up so be it.

Favorite Lyric(s)

I had a friend was a big baseball player

Back in high school

He could throw that speedball by you

Make you look like a fool boy

Saw him the other night at this roadside bar

I was walking in, he was walking out

We went back inside sat down had a few drinks

But all he kept talking about was

Glory days, well, they’ll pass you by

Glory days, in the wink of a young girl’s eye

Glory days, glory days

Well there’s a girl that lives up the block

Back in school she could turn all the boy’s heads

Sometimes on a Friday I’ll stop by

And have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed

Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight

And I’m going to drink till I get my fill

And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it

But I probably will
