That was my first thought - but I hope not. I don't like it. Bruce needs a song with a clear message.

That’s a good song that is a pretty non-partisan in theme. Non-partisan would be a great start to help knock down some of the nonsense in this country.

Please Bruce, please pay Sleepy Joe's cafe. For the craic. 

For Biden inauguration - as part of Celebrating America, prime time that evening Jan. 15, 2021, 6:00 a.m. ET Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Foo Fighters will perform during the prime-tim

The last thing this Inauguration needs is a shooter.  Long Walk Home fits the bill for me.

At an event such as this, where Bruce is playing by invitation, does Bruce choose what to play or does Joe Biden ask him to perform certain songs?

Absolutely. Jokes aside, what will be performed this year will probably be as bipartisan as it gets (especially by Bruce).

Biden came out on ‘Wtcooo’ the night the election was called, so who knows...

I read something in rolling stone online that there is a streamed radio program and WTCOOO is Mr Biden's* walk on music

 

Is this one and the same thing ?

*(Has he seen the video?)

Do you remember the video Mr Jertucky ?

However I'll give you the benifit of the doubt as Bruce has said regarding Brillant disguise, a song can change its meaning over time

(Just not BITUSA ;))

While even a Bruce Springsteen tribute act pulled out of President Trump’s sparsely-attended inauguration, the man himself was among the performers for the celebration around President Obama’s 2009 ceremony, which also included Beyonce, U2, Usher, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Jon Bon Jovi and Pete Seeger. Trump settled for country singers Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood, ‘90s rock act 3 Doors Down and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Two days before Obama was sworn in, about 400,000 people gathered in the National Mall, which is now filled with security personnel after Trump supporters rioted and invaded the Capitol building, for “We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration.” Springsteen performed the 9/11-inspired “The Rising” with the gospel choir Joyce Garrett Singers and later joined Seeger to perform “This Land Is Your Land.”

While Springsteen was initially reluctant in 2016 to support Hillary Clinton prominently (although he did perform a concert supporting her just days before the election), and was later initially reluctant to criticize President Trump — “ I’m not driven to write any anti-Trump diatribe; that doesn’t feel necessary at the moment,” he told Variety in an October 2017 cover story — before long he caved and lambasted the president’s conduct and decisions on several occasions. He stepped up his rhetoric during his “Springsteen on Broadway” residency, calling Trump’s immigration policies “inhumane” and the presidency a “dark moment.”

And in 2020, he went in. Springsteen lent his support to the campaign early, narrating Biden’s “Hometown” advertisement aimed at swing-state voters, and in August allowed the campaign to use “The Rising” in a video that aired during the Democratic National Convention, and segments of which were reprised on several nights. On SiriusXM shortly before the election, he encouraged people to vote Trump out of office and read a poem calling the administration a “nightmare presidency.”

I’m not saying what Bruce says the song is about, I’m saying what the lyrics say. We take care of our own. We pick political sides and act like jackasses defending our side but when it comes down to it, the vast majority of us help each other out regardless of political affiliation.

Apparently Joe has specifically asked for "Jesse's Girl"

I don’t know, but it is possible.

And to pot with everybody else. Far from the American 'caretakers of the world' theme we've heard so often.

Too insular. Might be true but hey-ho, do the job right (as Daisey's said) and it'll be a start. Not a criticism - we're not doing much better.
