My mood in a song – Wrecking Ball by Bruce Springsteen

My mood in a song – Wrecking Ball by Bruce Springsteen

This song perfectly reflects my mood today. I hate the Miley Cyrus’ version comes up on youtube before Bruce’s. How wrong is that? Anyway, I have put a link in case you fancy listening to it. 

Take care buddies, 



About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.

    • Wow. I did not know you were a fan of the boss. I have been listening to him since I was five.I thought you were into heavier music? You into his early stuff like Greeting from Asbury Park and Nebraska? I love Lost in the Flood

      and Nebraska

      Anyway, glad you said hi Chris. It is a pleasure to speak to you.

      • Then I like you even more. I got really angry last night that Miley Cyrus comes before Bruce on youtube when you type in Wrecking Ball. I mean, I was super pissed. I think I am going to write about him. He has been going for so long and his lyrics are better than most poetry I read. I don’t think he gets the recognition he deserves. I saw him live six years ago or so. He played Growin’ Up. I could not have been happier.

      • You might enjoy this disaster of an appearance we did on a Singapore Podcast where the tomboys challenged us to a ukulele challenge.

        This is just the ukulele portion. I gratefully accept defeat!

      • Aw man that was great. Thank you. It’s hilarious that you chose a song that is over five minutes long. Your rendition was pretty cool actually. The line ‘Is a dream a life that don’t come true, or is it something worse’ used to fucking haunt me as a kid. It still does. I find the concept terrifying. It’s like something out of a Stephen King book.


      • I always thought it was “is a dream a lie if it don’t come true? Or is it something worse?” Does that change anything?

        And I bet those Singapore chicks never heard that song in their life. I just wish I was more sober than i was so I could have done the song justice. I believe we were all pretty sloppy at that moment, except for the tomboys. I believe it was morning hours for them.

        We were all in rare condition that night because we thought we were just guests with no work to do. All we had to do was show up. Boy were we wrong.

      • No, that is what makes it so much worse. I used to think it was ‘a dream a lie’ too. That is a pretty dark thought when you think about it. When I discovered it was ‘a life that don’t come true, or is it something worse’ I lost my shit. What is worse than a dream of life not coming true? Holy shit, that is a terrifying concept. I think it is because he leaves it open that makes it scary.
