'The Wrestler' Just Got Bossier

September 2, 2008


Bruce Springsteen has written a new song for The Wrestler soundtrack, and it will make you cry. From director Darren Aronofsky's blog:

off to venice on wednesday. but i wanted to just share with you all the other music news i talked about in the past post. bruce springsteen wrote a beautiful original song for the closing the film. called THE WRESTLER it is a wonderful acoustic piece. makes me choke up every time i hear it. he really captured the spirit of the film and mickey's character in the piece.

Hey, this sounds like the best Bruce Springsteen movie soundtrack song that also has the title of the movie in the song since Dead Man Walking's "Dead Man Walking" and Philadelphia's "Streets of Philadelphia"! Then again, I can't remember any Springsteen songs less than a decade old, so maybe it won't be that good. But at least it will speak to the blue collar American worker,* and that's what's important.

*Assuming their blue collar work consists of wrestling.
