Rare Bruce Springsteen Tracks on the Blinded by the Light Soundtrack.
I went to see “Spiderman far From Home” over the weekend….loved it, great movie, go see it! Before the movie there were the normal trailers for upcoming movies and one of them, “Blinded by the Light” really caught my attention.
It’s the story of a teenager that is growing up in London with his very conservative Pakistani Muslim family. He discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen and it changes his life. Of course his parents don’t understand, but I have a feeling they come around in the end.
This movie is based on the 2008 memoir from Safraz Manzoor, Greetings From Bury Park. The movie is coming out August 14, but you can get the soundtrack August 9th.
The soundtrack contains 12 Springsteen songs, including some live concert rarities.
