Times change, songs change, ears change.

This morning I listened to Bruce Springsteen’s lovely song “Across the Border”. I’d always heard it as a song of a Mexican man romanticizing about how great life will be in Los Estados Unidos. This time it sounded like the voice of a disillusioned migrant who’s giving up on America and going home. Different time, different ears.
