Powder skiing offers a rare moment for man to commune with mountain. It requires the forces of nature to align just right, and when they do, the result is a bliss so pure it turns grown men as giddy as a school boy on prom night.
Doo wop, the most sensual music ever made, the sound of raw sex, of silk stockings rustling on backseat upholstery, the sound of the snaps of bras popping across the USA, of wonderful lies being whispered into Tabu–perfumed ears, the sound of smeared lipstick, untucked shirts, running mascara, tears on your pillow, secrets whispered in the still of the night, the high school bleachers, & the dark at the YMCA canteen. The soundtrack for your incredibly, wonderful limp–your–ass, blue–balled walk back home after the dance. Oh! And it hurt so good.
— Bruce Springsteen, 2012 SXSW Keynote Speech
I love this so much. Not just this particular quote, but Bruce’s entire 2012 SXSW Keynote Speech. Very inspirational and entertaining. If you haven’t seen it already, watch it now, if you have, watch it again. I wonder how many bra’s were popped to this song?
