Springsteen.  De strepen van de Amerikaanse vlag, een noeste arbeider met een petje in zijn kontzak: Born In The USA van Bruce Springsteen uit 1984 was een patriottische lofzang. Zo interpreteerde toenmalig president Ronald Reagan de elpee. Niets bleek echter minder waar. The Boss kende met de plaat weinig vaderlandsliefde. Sterker nog, het titelnummer is een protestlied tegen onder meer de oorlog in Vietnam: ‘to go and kill the yellow man’. [FT]

January 4 — Elvis Presley. On this day in 1954, Elvis recorded one of his very first demos at Sun Studio in Memphis, Tenn, which lead him to become one of the greatest entertainers of all time with a catalog of music that spans decades and 33 feature films. Even to this day, his gyrating hips are ever-so-swoon-worthy and his legend will live on through his music, good looks, and a small army of Elvis impersonators world wide.
