Springsteen Wins Four Grammys

Associated Press, 1995-03-01, by:
Bruce Springsteen's brooding ``Streets of Philadelphia'' won song of the year and three other honors at Wednesday night's 37th annual Grammy ceremony. The song, from the 1993 movie ``Philadelphia'' about a lawyer with AIDS, also won for best rock song, best song written specifically for a movie or television and best male rock vocal performance. ``I'm not sure this is a rock vocal. You stick around long enough and they give these things to ya,'' he said, drawing laughs.

Springsteen, who earned an Academy Award for the song last year, expressed appreciation in an acceptance speech earlier in the night to ``the folks who have come up to me in restaurants or on the street who've lost their sons or their lovers or their friends to AIDS and said this song meant something to them.''
