Friday Night Tunes

I’ve posted this song before, I think, but it’s worth an encore.

Last night the post-Obama speech song was Bruce Springsteen’s We Take Care of our Own, but it’s not a particular favorite of mine. The Rising, above, is – a simply amazing song, born from 9/11, and given a gospel accent by Sting here, it’s transcendent.

This is from the Kennedy Center Honors, so no good video (hence the skinnyvision), but it’s not the video that matters, except, of course, for the lovely shots of Bruce Springsteen taking it all in.

Have a great weekend.
