Quote of the Day (Bruce Springsteen, on Music Against ‘All the World Closing In’)

“For an adult, the world is constantly trying to clamp down on itself. Routine, responsibility, decay of institutions, corruption: this is all the world closing in. Music, when it’s really great, pries that shit back open and lets people back in, it lets light in, and air in, and energy in, and sends people home with that and sends me back to the hotel with it. People carry that with them sometimes for a very long period of time.”—Bruce Springsteen quoted in David Remnick, “Profiles: We Are Alive: Bruce Springsteen at Sixty-Two,” The New Yorker, July 30, 2012
