It turns out that Bruce Springsteen wrote a song years ago intended to be used on the soundtrack to a Harry Potter film, but the producers said no. I repeat, they said no to BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.
Here’s what Springsteen said about the song, titled I’ll Stand By You Always, in a BBC interview last year:
“It was pretty good. It was a song that I wrote for my eldest son, it was a big ballad that was very uncharacteristic of something I’d sing myself. But it was something that I thought would have fit lovely; at some point I’d like to get it into a children’s movie of some sort.”
In fairness to the Harry Potter crew, it’s not exactly Born To Run. Give ‘er a listen and judge for yourself whether it should’ve been used.
